Opening – Word
Praise to God in Creation and Redemption
135 Praise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord;
Praise Him, O you servants of the Lord!
2 You who stand in the house of the Lord,
In the courts of the house of our God,
3 Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
Sing praises to His name, for it is pleasant.
4 For the Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself,
Israel for His [a]special treasure.
5 For I know that the Lord is great,
And our Lord is above all gods.
6 Whatever the Lord pleases He does,
In heaven and in earth,
In the seas and in all deep places.
7 He causes the [b]vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
He makes lightning for the rain;
He brings the wind out of His treasuries.
8 He [c]destroyed the firstborn of Egypt,
[d]Both of man and beast.
9 He sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt,
Upon Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 He defeated many nations
And slew mighty kings—
11 Sihon king of the Amorites,
Og king of Bashan,
And all the kingdoms of Canaan—
12 And gave their land as a [e]heritage,
A heritage to Israel His people.
13 Your name, O Lord, endures forever,
Your fame, O Lord, throughout all generations.
14 For the Lord will judge His people,
And He will have compassion on His servants.
15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
The work of men’s hands.
16 They have mouths, but they do not speak;
Eyes they have, but they do not see;
17 They have ears, but they do not hear;
Nor is there any breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them are like them;
So is everyone who trusts in them.
19 Bless the Lord, O house of Israel!
Bless the Lord, O house of Aaron!
20 Bless the Lord, O house of Levi!
You who fear the Lord, bless the Lord!
21 Blessed be the Lord out of Zion,
Who dwells in Jerusalem!
Praise the Lord!
The Lord descends upon his people with a shout.
…..blessed be the Lord out of Zion, who dwells in Jerusalem…praise the Lord.
Praise… him.. unto shall our praise come. We praise you in the morning, in the noontime, we praise you even in the midst of our enemies, we praise you. We join the nations, angels, creations, mountains and seas, in shouting your name this morning. Glory to the one of Jerusalem, the one who rules, your judgement knows no end.
You are still God. God Over circumstances and situations. Though the Rivers May Run dey, we still praise you. We rise upon high places and give you praise. Who can we compare to you. Great is the Lord… in the city of God, in the fountain of his Holiness. We Glory your name in the House of David. Amongst the Gods of the Land there is none to be compared with you. When we were not deserving of your goodness, in every where you Gave it to us. Your faithfulness is never in doubt. We thank you. You sent tremor into the camp of the enemies. The see us and they are terrified because we have a God who rules in the affairs of men. Thank you for those covenant we have with you. Thank you.

Declaration: Wonderful Jesus… the Glory of God is here.
When the lord turned around the captivity of Zion we were like men that dreameth.
God’s glory is upon us this morning…
Is there a blind bartholomeus who says if only I can see him… you are waiting to be told you can see…. You yourself can see!!
A new level of song, auction, garment, priesthood…step into it.
Songs that will point men to me. God is anointing me for the right thing in the place of worship. A new song has God given from this minute as you key into the assignment , the portals of heaven is opened to you. Until the knowledge of the Glory covers the earth as the waters covers the sea.
I created you for my purpose but Men has shout you out of it. Will you be the key that opens the door. I stand on the door and knock… will you be the key that will upon the door into the different sphere of the society.?
You see what you have heard what other people talk about him. He wants you to write what others have not written. He wants you to sing what no man has sang. His knowledge no one can exhaust. Do you want me to reveal to you myself so you can announce me to the world. You can not announce what you do not know. The level of which you know is what you announce.
The priest understands the closest. The priesthood is about understand the tabernacle, the secret place, the place of my glory so you can reveal me to the nations of the earth.
…Lord we thank you.
Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit.
Thank you Lord.
Holy is the Lord
3) I could search through all eternity Lord, & I found that there there is none like you!
I treasure, my priority
Who can compare to you,
Great is the measure of
Your royalty oh morning
Star you are truly everything..
I pledge to make you the Author of my life to make you the subject of my 2019. I pledge to my you my central goal. Not the things you can do or give but you yourself. Thank you Lord. Make us a people that seek you. You send who shall ascend to the Holy lord, who shall stand… a generation that seek your face. Please make us in 2019, the kind of people to behold you lovely face before us that you reign in the throne of our hearts that is your desire. Make us a people of your purpose, a people of your presence, your royal priesthood. Thank you. Money can’t buy all positions that confirm affluence or authority. All of them put together can not be compared to you, Jesus the Son Of Almighty. Thank you Lord.
The manifest presence of God separates religious presence of God and true worshippers. It separates those who know him and those who don’t know him. Those who talk about him from those who have a work with him.
When you walk into you house and every other person is shouting welcome, and there is somebody wondering who are they saying welcome to, who are they speaking to; that person is a “stranger”:
…your kids never wonder they fling out there hands and say daddy welcome. This is how the manifest of God separatesd people who do not know him. Separates from the true worshippers…
Jesus said to the woman… if only you know him, you will give me the true waters
Your dispositions and demands are limited to the knowledge of him. That’s why he came and his people knew him not. The children of Abraham killed Abraham best friend because they do not know him.
Look at Isaiah 61.
This year 2019 has been declared to us by God through his servant as a “DOUBLE GLORY”. This is my portion therefore I shout aloud Double Glory. Also the year of Double honor. I see you walking in glory and honour in the name of Jesus.
Everywhere you have been burnt in the past God is bringing and decorating you with beauty …
God said give them the oil of Joy for mourning… weep no more for God has heard you… all tears are been turned to Joy in the name of Jesus.
Anyone under the influence of rejection and depression, that Toke Of heaviness is broken this year and replaced with garment of praise in Jesus Name. Miracles that will turn you to a joyful person is locating you.
…. the Lord will be glorified in your life.
When people see you, sometimes they wonder what is the proof of serving God. God is saying you will be called this year, the planting of the Lord and you will be nurtured by God himself. You will sock his breast this year. The God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob is known as Elshaddai, from his breadth 7 billion people on the earth are been fed.
This year the joyous part of what flows from God is locating you in 2019. And your character will glory him. You can’t continue to hide your man or woman in secret because you are ashamed. This year that situation is been turned around in the name of Jesus.
If you are anointed you should be doing the seven things recorded in Isaiah 61. Auction is for Function. The moment you are given auction, you are inducted to Function. You carry here in Jerusalem… unto the ends of the earth… the anointing is given for a purpose. In 2019, you must put the anointing to work.
The whole of Isaiah 61, talks about doing things for others, to proclaim liberty to them that are bound… to comfort those who mourn. If the Holy Spirit is in you, you are a comforter. You all are comforted no matter what you are going. No matter what the devil has done in your life in 2018, you are comforted. No matter what you are going through there is glory ahead, it will end in PRAISE….
Even if the enemy is winning you now, you are going to have the last laugh… today God is risen in the heavenly places above all principalities and powers. They will bow before me tomorrow. This year put the anointing to work. Nobody around me should be hopeless because God has given me the spirit to comfort.
You should not talk to anything and that thing becomes deader… whatsoever has died in your life, whether it is your business… I speak life this morning to everything this morning.
I carry life? It is in my mouth and in my belly. Jesus said he that believe upon me, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. Life is resident in God… I have come that they might have life in the name of Jesus.
Whatsoever you are, the life of God, if the same spirit dwells in you,..how be it…you the man who is in that position of debt, if he finds another believer who is carrying that same spirit and resource, that same generator… the Holy Spirit is not power, if you have the power today, all you need to do is to turn it on just like the generator.
There is a God that rules in the affairs of men, that dead thing is risen.
That dead thing, is risen. Life is resident in Christ. And you and I are licensed to issue that life to others. This morning whatsoever is dead in your life I command it to come alive in the name of Jesus. Amen!
This year you shall put the anointing to work. You are carrying what money can not buy. You are carrying what men are paying price to get, out it to work.
Verse one & two talks about the purpose of the anointing. God decorates you with what you have read. He takes you aches and gives you beauty the moment you turn from devil to God. He takes your darkness and gives you light. This year I receive praise for mourning, so I can put it to work.
Verse Four talks about another responsibility, when God finis beautifying next, he gives you another task… they desolation that surrounds you, God is empowering you to turn it around in the name of Jesus.
God changes a man so he can change your situation. Once God has chosen you, you rise up and use your anointing and turn that situation. If the spirit is upon you, you must speak. Whatever I lost in 2018 I recall it. The lord goes before me and makes the crooked part straight. The Lord is my Shield and glory, he is my light, my life and my salvation. Amen.
He didn’t say I will rebuild the old waste, he said “they” will rebuild the old waste. If there is any waste in your life it means you have condoned it. When God comes and seals a thing with his presence, you know you are in for a real business.
Verse 5, strangers shall stand and feed your flock. People that you know not shall bless you. Nothing like I don’t know anybody in Government house. Strangers shall feed my flock. When God says strangers shall feed your flock, he takes you beyond the relationships in your life. People you know not shall feed your flock. It has started in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Lord in the name of Jesus I tap into this Glory…(mine)
Strangers shall stand and feed your flock. In verse 6, you shall remain the priest of the Lord. Men shall call you the ministers of God… in their glory you shall boast. Verse 7, for you shame I shall have glory.
Everywhere you have experienced shame, a glory awaits you. For confusion, you shall rejoice in your portion. On this earth, I shall possess double of everything.
Eh…. my God is good.
Everything na double
My success na double.
Glory na double double:
Everything na double…
The key to double honour and glory is your priesthood. To succeed as a believer you must understand the priesthood of Christ, carrying out his high Ministry for you and I. If you know about Jesus that walks on the cross but you don’t know about the Jesus that stands by God then you need to understand.
Look at Hebrews 4:15-16
…now you know about the priest, come boldly.. because you have someone who is seated at the right hand of the father. When I was working in Government, there are people who can’t come straight to the Boss, so they look for someone who knows him and tag along.
So now that you know that Jesus is seated on the right hand of the Father then be bold …
You can never work in faith until you understand the priesthood of Christ. God has also given us a high priest here in earth.
You need a high priest over your life to bless you.
Even Abraham needed a blessing from Melchisedec.
God has given the high priest like Pastor David a blessing of the priesthood to bless. Every Abraham need a Melchiseclec. One of the job of the priest is to carry the people before God.
Who is carrying you Before God?
Two different things
One like rain and another like pipe. Can you compare a pipe directly from the ocean connecting water into the house. We pray for Pastor David to continue to represent you and none of his words shall fall into the grounds. But then, you must understand you own priesthood because you are a priest. You shall be made a minister of God. In the Old Testament you will discover for the ark of the covenant to be captured, the priesthood broke down…
Just as the Philippines captured the Ark.
God was talking about restoring the priesthood because the ark is not meant to be carried by animals but by priest, that is if you are talking about the double glory and honour.
Are you looking for a Glory & Honour, then find Priesthood. My priesthood will bring me double Glory.
Ministering to God: consecrate unto me Aron and his sons that they may minister to me. In prayer in praise and in singing unto God. The strength to stand before men comes from standing before God. He that kneels before God shall stand before men as a true priest of God. As you kneel before God, Men will kneel before you.
When last was God himself the focus of your prayer:
I love you Lord,
Yes I love you Lord,
You are God
I praise you Lord,
Yes I praise you Lord,
You are God
I honour you Lord,
I honour you Lord
Yes I honour you Lord
You are God.
When you minister to God he becomes the object of your ministry. The focus of your prayer. The Holy Spirit spoke as they ministered.
Not every song you sing or dance is unto God. The kind that ministers to God is that kind that David danced…
people dance just exciting themselves not God.
Dance unto God with praises to God.
For you not to care who is looking at you, it means you are blind to yourself.
2) Minister into Men as guaranteed in Isaiah 61:1-2. Everything god has done is for us not for himself. All he seeks from us is our Glory. When we gather, all that God needs is our praises. He is self pulling. He dwelleth in all our quenchable light.
There is a difference between a worshiper and a seeker. This year, you must partake in praise and worship. A time where everything is turned to God.
God’s desire is to make us his Kingdom Of Priest….
These ones are the ones who will stand before me and minister…of the 365 days in the year he can do it only once. One person represents the whole nation before God and he can do it once in the year.
But as Jesus Gave up the Ghost, all of us will no longer depend on another persons priesthood, but now the veil of the temple been torn open so that all of us can enter or step in. You in you own can enter. Without the veil been torn we can talk about the kIngdom of Priests. The blood redeemed ya from the kingdom of darkness and gives us the power to function and enter into The holiest with boldness…- the blood of Jesus.
By a new and living way, which he had consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh…
By God’s blood we can have access and step unto his presence.
Lord I come not by my own righteousness but by the righteousness in Christ Jesus.
Your words controls your own spirit.
What made John step up… and immediately John said I was in the spirit as Jesus asked him to step up.
Lord this morning I step into the Holy of Holiest, the blood of Jesus and the door can not be shut against me.
Another thing the Blood does as pronounced in Zachariah 3:2.
When Satan wants to cut you off the first place he cuts you off is your priestly Ministry.
If Satan can not oppose you there, he can’t oppose you in life.
The Lord rebuked Satan, … now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and stood before the angel. Anytime you are having challenges with your prayer life, it’s time to bring back the priestly before God; by washing it in the blood of the lamp.
When you feel resistance is the place of prayer, you bring yourself before God.
Thank You Lord for the Blood Of Jesus.
Thank you Lord my garment is made white.
No more resistance from the enemy. I apply the blood even over the house.
I plead the blood over everything in my life.
The blood is the most powerful cleansing agent on Earth.
Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing part
Are you washed through the blood of the lamb.
The blood does two things:
Grants you access and ensure that you are properly clothed
Father we thank you for the death on the Cross of Calvary.
Thank you for what your blood stands for and represents
Thank you that by your blood out garment is made white.
This is your bread broken for us, we shall eat of it, and your cup made of your new covenant, we drink all of it.
As you partake of the communion your prayer should be for God to change your garment so that you can stand before God in his holy place throughout 2019. By the blood our hands is purified.
Cleanse my hand cleanse my heart, change my heart so I can stand before you with boldness. So that my ministry will not be limited this year in Jesus Name. Change my garment lord, I cast away the garment that is filled with sin. Before the prodigal son entered the house, his father met him and asked that his garment be changed so he can partake in the celebration.
By the blood of Jesus I cleanse myself of every form of wickedness, I cleanse myself of anything that is not of God in my life: I cleanse myself of enmity of conflict of hatred in the name of jesus.
Are you washed in the Blood,
In the soul cleansing blood of the lamb. Are your garments spotless?
Are they white as snow? Are you washed in the blood of the lamb.
This year 2019, I lay aside the filthy garments.
No other name I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Oh Precious his I know
He makes me white as snow
What can wash away my sin, nothing but the blood of Jesus.
There is a fountain filled with blood
Drawn from Immanuel’s veins
And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains,
Lose all their guilty stains,
Lose all their guilty stains,
And sinners plunged beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains.
The dying thief rejoiced to see,
That fountain in his day,
And these may I ……
Father we honour you, today you have not just said your word but you came down this morning and inhabited the praises we brought to you. We thank you for the most powerful thing you can use to honour us is your PRESENCE, using your servant to release your word mightily to us. Because we believe in faith of the finished work of Christ, everyone who has drank of your blood and eaten ,Is cleansed in Jesus Name.
Thank you Lord for a wonderful message in your presence.
God bless you Dear Sir, Pastor Shola.
Thank you so much.
Thank you Lord for bringing me again in your presence to do what I love to do.
Anyaku Alicho Iheoha.
…,,God never fails in his works.
He will give us the grace ….
Summer Winter God knows them all.
