Your name is important. Whenever God sees that a name is hindering His work in the life of an individual, He can change the name as in the story of Abraham. 1st Chronicles 4:9-10, Jabez had a name that hindered his Glory. If you have a name that is limiting God's glory in your life, that name is changing tonight.

Isaiah 55:8- God's ways are not our ways.There is so much importance in a name, it can change your life and affect your destiny. 1st Kings 18:13-35, the name Elijah means Jehovah is God, and it was evident in Elijah's life.

Changing your name can come in two ways;
  • By adoption John 3:16, Romans 8:15
  • A new name can also come in by new accommodation.

If you join a new family, it automatically means a new accommodation. To join the family of God means you will be immediately translated out of Darkness into His marvelous light. If you are truly a Christian, when you join the family of Christ, you end up with many new names.

Even Jesus has numerous names: Counsellor, Consuming Fire, Saviour, Deliverer. Know now that you are the light of the world and your light must shine in the world. Because your new name is the light of the world, forces of darkness will begin to run from you. Everywhere you go from now, when you arrive, miracles will arrive. Beginning from now, everywhere you turn, doors will be open unto you. Because I am associated with Christ, whether the enemies like it or not, my future will be glorious. If you are not truly saved by Christ, you don't know what you are missing. If you want to give your life to Christ, please do so now.

Prayer Points for Day 1
1.Thank God for the privilege to be a member of His Family
2.Father, in the name of Jesus, any shame in my past, erase it tonight.
3.Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, any shame in my present, let it end tonight.
4.Father, any shame in my destiny, cancel it tonight.
5.Father, let my future be Glorious.
6.Ask God for a special advanced miracle.

Jesus Christ said He is the vine and we are the branches. Because you are a branch of Jesus Christ, by the time you will leave here, you will be made completely whole. When you leave here, you will be equipped with the power to heal the sick.

Jesus made Himself manifest as the son of man and yet went back to heaven to show his Humanity and Divinity. In Mark 4:35-41, Jesus the Human slept in the storm and Jesus the Divine took control of the storm. Just as we are the branches of Jesus (the Vine), there is the humanity and the Divinity aspect of our lives.

John 14:10; Even at this, we must understand that we (the branches) cannot do anything without the Vine. Even Jesus while on earth looked to His Father before taking actions.

Philemon 4:13;  indicates that we can do everything the Vine can do, but by the power of the Vine(Jesus). The One who is in the Vine, is the One who is in the branches. Beginning from this moment, you will be healing the sick. I decree right now,  whatever is called sickness in your life is destroyed. The moment Jesus comes into your life, the same power that rose Jesus from the dead will begin to work in you.

Mark 5:25-34; The woman with the issue of blood realized that there is enough power flowing out from Jesus body to his dress and she was made whole.

The only criterion to perform miracles with the Vine is if you are connected as a branch. If you are here and you are not attached to the Vine as a branch, come forward and do so now.

Prayer Points  for Day 2
1. Father, everything that is not of you in my system, let your blood consume them tonight.
2. Father, let your Spirit, quicken the body of my neighbour right now.
3. Father we are in one accord, in your church let there be no more cancer.
4. Father, from now on when I lay my hands on the sick, let them recover instantly.
5. Lay your two hands upon your head and command healing upon yourself.

18. And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. 19. Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. 20. And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
When you leave here, at the end of this Congress and begin to tell people what God has down for you; They will Marvel! Now, if you ask those who have being here since on Monday, to introduce themselves to you, you will be hearing so many names - Common go ahead and introduce yourself to two (2) or three (3) people. I am sure you are hearing them use names you have not heard before: "I am the Light of the world, I am the Salt of the Earth, I am a Christan, I am a child of God..." And what did we say your name is, yesterday? "I am a Branch of the Life".

Today, I want to make available to you a New Name. And this time, it is "An Ambassador". 2 Corinthians 5:20 says: "Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God."

The interesting thing about the Name AMBASSADOR, is that "You represent your King". And you have his full backing. Wherever you go, your King is there.

Oh! You say, your President, your Head of State. In our own case, He is our King. I am sure you have noticed that when you want to salute a President or a Head of State,  you say: Your Excellency! When you want to salute an Ambassador do you say? "Your Excellency" - YES!

Could you please help me tell two (2) or three (3) people around you: Your Excellency. I want you to tell your friends and those around you: Be careful how you treat me, because I am "His/Her Excellency".

There is another thing I want you to know about an Ambassador. You may not be the Ambassador of your Nation; but you are an Ambassador of the King of kings.

"The Residence of an Ambassador is SECURED". If you are in any kind of trouble in any Nation, and you run to the Embassy; You cannot be arrested. Even if an enemy is pursuing you. If you enter the Palace of your King, you are secured.

May I decree to somebody here tonight; Your Residence is a forbidden zone to the devil. tonight is a very special night. and am sure you can feel it in the air already.

Now, I will tell you a story; it is my true life experience. Shortly after I became the General Overseer, the Lord built me a small house in the out-sketch of my Town - my mother lived there with a little girl (take care of my mother).

And then one day, a mad man break loose and began to terrorise the people in the area. He was chasing a woman who had a baby on her back and a child in her hand. When the woman saw that the Mad Man could catch up with her, she dropped the child and ran into a house.

The mad man took the  child and broke the arm. Then he saw another woman. He pursued her, when she noticed he was very close she branched into my house. The mad man got to the door and turned back. I decree tonight, your home will become a forbidden zone to the devil.

You are an Ambassador! Now, there are two (2) Principal Kingdoms: The kingdom of darkness and the Kingdom of Light. Colossians 1:12-13 says: 12. Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:13. Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: There are two (2) Kingdoms; it has been like that from the beginning.

In Genesis 1:1-2; when God created the Heaven and earth; Darkness was upon the face of the deep. Darkness - it was the first kingdom. Associated with it is confusion, emptiness. Until God spoke in Genesis 1:3; Let there be Light. And there was Light. The Bible says: God saw that the Light was good.

I am believing God for somebody here tonight that: There will be a permanent separation between you and the kingdom of Darkness. In the kingdom of darkness there is always Sorrow. In the Kingdom of Light, there is Joy. Psalm 30:5 says - "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Sorrow and Darkness go together. While Joy and Light go together.

In the Name of the One who created Light; there is someone here who will not sorrow again. Now, which Ambassador are you? Is it the Ambassador of the kingdom of Darkness or the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Light?

I want to explain briefly what you will get as the ambassador of darkness. Yes! i need to explain that quickly, because tonight is a night of deliverance. And you must come Under a New Management. If you are Satan's Ambassador, you can expect the following:

1. He uses people, and then Humiliate them. In I Kings 18:25-29; the Prophets of Baal cried unto Satan, they cut themselves, then shouted, but there no answer from the god. Even when Elijah mocked them. Satan did not come to their rescue. If you are his Ambassador; sooner or data he will humiliate you.

2. Satan will use you, only to DISCARD you.He uses his Ambassadors and then discard them. You can read that in 1 Samuel 17:1-52. For forty (40) days he used Goliath as a Terrorist. But the moment he hit the ground, Satan  forsook him and David cut off his head.
3. Satan uses people only to DESTROY their Destiny. In Acts 1:15-20; the Bible tells us concerning Judas Iscariot. That this man was supposed to be an Apostle; but he ended up committing suicide.

So I am appealing to you tonight; if you are linked to in anyway to any Cult, evil covenant; anything that has the trace of the devil: Get out tonight! If you choose to be God's Ambassador, what can you expect?

1. You can expect Glory. God uses people and then Glorifies them. In 2 Kings 2:11-12; He used Elijah, and sent His own Special chariot to bring him home.

2. God uses people only to Promote them. 2 Kings 2:12-15; He used Elisha and then promoted him from being a Servant of the Prophet to becoming a Prophet.

3. If you are an Ambassador of Jesus Christ, you need to expect that even when you are discouraged He will Encourage you. In 1 Kings 19:1-8; Elijah was discouraged to the extent of thinking of committing suicide - Elijah came and sat down under a Juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. Like I told you last month: God does not bury His own. He feeds them!

4. When you are in the Storm of life; He will come and Help you. In Acts 27:21-25; Paul was in a storm and God sent an Angel to go an encourage him.
5. He Answers your Prayer by Fire. In 1 Kings 18:30-39; Elijah prayed for only two (2) minutes and the Fire Fell. And tonight as you pray, the Fire is going to Fall.

I just want to give you some signs that you need deliverance, and come under a New Management;
1. The first sign is Fear. Suddenly you become afraid is sleeping, of waking up, of going to work, of returning from work. Afraid of several things. If there is Fear in your life, you need Deliverance. Because Fear is a spirit; it is a demon. 2 Timothy 1:7 says - Fear is a Spirit! And fear has torment. Fear is a torment according to 1 John 4:18.

2. If you have Anxiety; you are always worrying about tomorrow, your children, your wife/husband. Always worrying; then you nerd deliverance according to Philippians 4:6-7. And the only thing that worry does for you: It robs you of Joy. Psalm 30:5.

Your tomorrow is going to be alright! Amen! I didn't hear your Amen - Amen! If Joy is coming in the morning, then why must I worry tonight? Oh! Daddy, you don't know what I am going through. What are you going through that can be compared (with all humility) to what I am going through?

One of my sons said he is stressed. And I asked why? He said because he is a Pastor in charge of a Province, with hundred Parishes. And I asked him: If you are stressed, what am I supposed to do?

"I will serve God with Gladness; because my tomorrow my tomorrow will be alright". Now lift your hands and repeat that: I will serve God with Gladness; because my tomorrow my tomorrow will be alright.I have told you the story before; when I newly became the General Overseer, with thirty nine (39) Parishes. Oh! God, thirty nine (39) problems.

When I travel and return, my wife will tell me: there is problem here, there is problem there. I will say: I see, please give me my food. She will be surprised, expecting that maybe when I finish I will comment. When I finish eating I pray and go to bed. Why must I worry, when Joy comes in the morning.How many of us believe that your tomorrow will be alright? Let me hear you shout hallelujah - Hallelujah!

3. Self Destruction Habit: Like the mad man of Gadara. He was cutting himself with stones. There are many of us who have habits that we know are injurious to our health and yet we can't stop it. You need Deliverance!

There was a Medical Doctor who was smoking. Why are you smoking? Something has to kill you, he said. Some people will die through gun shots, some through accidents. In his own case he chose to die though smoking. He was aware of the injury smoking does to his health; but kept doing it. There are many of us, who are doing things that are destructive to our health; But the Lord will deliver you tonight.

4. Sorrow: Yes, we are human, and can be sorrowful sometimes. If you are sad, Cry! Even Jesus wept.  And when something sorrowful happen to me I weep. I remember a time somebody lost a close relative. I visited them. He was crying and I joined him to cry. The people there said they thought I should be consoling the bereaved. I told them, Even Jesus wept!

5. And this big one - disobedience. You know the Will of God and yet refuse to do it. John 15:14 "Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." What is the meaning of that? If you don't do what I command, you are no longer my friend. 1 Samuel 15:22-23 says: To obey is better than sacrifice; and the sin of rebellion is as witchcraft. Oh! If you consider that alone; there are many young people who are in need of Deliverance. They just want to show their parents that they can rebel. God will give you Deliverance tonight, in Jesus Name.
6. What is that thing He commands you to do?He said to that Mad Man who had being delivered, from our Text (Mark 5:18-20): I want you to be my Ambassador; go and tell others what God has done for you. "Go and Witness".

If you find Witnessing difficult; you need Deliverance. If you can't open your mouth and tell others about Jesus Christ; You need Deliverance. Anyone who is an Ambassador of Jesus Christ; who is on the side of God will have this insatiable urge to Witness. You will find it difficult to keep your mouth shut. I will give you just two (2) examples.

Some of the older ones here will remember one man named Moses. Brother Moses was an Ambassador of Satan. Before he met Jesus, he has sex with animals; goat, dog, chicken. No child was safe when Moses was around. Whenever he is on holiday, parents tied their children.

When he was An Ambassador of Satan; he did a great job! And when he gave his life to Jesus, he just couldn't keep his mouth shut. You can't spend few minutes with Moses without him witnessing Jesus Christ to you. If you are truly saved; you can't keep your mouth shut. .

You want me to give you another example? He is the one who is talking to you. My wife said I should not be telling you the details; and I respect her a lot. But you know who I was. And that is why I witness Jesus Christ everywhere. I can't keep silent. If you are still keeping silent, you need Deliverance.

What is God Expecting from His Ambassadors?
1. He expects you to be His Voice. He expects you to be His Witness - Acts 1:8.

2. He expects His Ambassador to set the captives free. He expects you to have a Deliverance Ministry; everyone, not the Pastors alone - Mark 16:16-18 says:17. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18.They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. It tells you what He expects from you; the first thing that He said is: you will cast out demons;

You witness, you cast our demons and you heal the sick. Are you saying that "I am to cast out demons?" Provided you are not under the influence of demon yourself. If you are truly connected to Jesus, you will command demons to go and they shall obey you.

It is when you are not connected to Satan that Satan can answer you: Jesus I know, Paul I know, Adeboye I know; who are you? Is there any Reward for Ambassador of Christ? Many of them but I will give you only one, now

1. An Ambassador does not need to Defend himself. His defence comes from the King or the Head of State.

When an Ambassador goes to any country, he returns safely. Nobody messes with an Ambassador; No matter how little he might be: they don't mess with Ambassadors. You people have asked me, when people criticise me: Why don't you fight back? I tell them I can't. I only pray for them. You don't know the secret? I will tell you the secret tonight.

Exodus 23:22 says: "But if thou shalt indeed obey His voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries."

Anybody who is attacking an Ambassador, is asking for the Consuming Fire to come and fight him. And the only thing you can do for such a fellow is to beg God for mercy.If you become an Ambassador today, God have Mercy on your enemies.

A mad dog when it sees Fire, it pulls back. Have you seen a mad man who got burnt? No matter the level of madness, a mad man can never get burnt.

Do you know the Name of your God? He is a Consuming Fire. So when somebody is fighting the Ambassador of God; he is challenging God to a contest. And you need to pray for God to have Mercy on that enemy.

If you will be Obedient to your King; He will Supply all your needs. He will make your Residence secured. He will Defend you.

If you want to give your life to Jesus now and get connected to Him come now. Before we begin to pray for Deliverance; you need to be Born Again. You need to be washed in the Blood. Because when we begin to pray tonight, demons jumping out will be looking for where to hide.

I am going to  count from one (1) to ten (10). Do if you want to be born again, come quickly; so I can pray for your Salvation. Am counting. Now those of you already in front and those of you on the way, talk to God: Please forgive my sins. Wash me with your Blood and I will serve you all my life. Please make me your Ambassador - Go ahead to talk to the Lord.

And the rest of us, let us stretch forth our hands towards these people and intercede for them. Let us pray that the One who save our souls will save their own souls too. Please intercede for them. Counsellors please move close.

And those of you who are on the way keep coming and just make sure you are here before I finished praying. Thank you Father. Glory be to your Holy Name. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed - Amen!

Go prays: Saviour we want to thank you. Thank you for these your children who have come out. Please remember your Promise that whosoever that come to you; you will no wise cast out. Please receive them, forgive them, let your Blood wash away their sins, save their souls, write their names in the Book of Life, receive them into the family of God and don't let them backslide again. And from now on, anytime they call on you, answer them by Fire. And in your Kingdom, don't let them be missing. In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed - Amen!

And those of you who have come forward, Congratulations. Let me hear you shout Hallelujah - Hallelujah!

The Counsellors will give you card. Please fill your  Name and Address and Prayer request. I promise I will be praying for you.

Please go to your seat. We will wait for you. And the rest of us, while we wait for these people to fill their cards, we will worship the Lord. Let's go ahead and worship Him for what He is about to do tonight.

Brief Session of worship by the choir. When we call on the Almighty God to send down His Fire tonight; there is the possibility of some people that are being set free struggling a little bit.

It is called Manifestation. So if as we begin to pray you see somebody begin to behave a bit unusual; you have to help bring them to the Open Space in front. Or if you know that you need Deliverance; the sensation that you are having shows you need Deliverance; even as we begin to pray, come forward as well.

If you believe the Fire of God will Fall tonight shout hallelujah - Hallelujah!

Prayer Points For Day 3
1. Say Father, Cover me with your Blood.
2. Everyone of us in one accord say Father, Let your Fire Fall.

God is going to hear someone here tonight and He will answer. Why do we need to pray? Because the spiritual controls the physical. Joshua 6:20 I know many walls have already fallen. There is help for you and God knows where help is. Psalm 121:1-2 God can direct help to you.1 Kings 17:8-16

There is help for you. God please send help to me. I prophesy to someone here today, God will send your helper to you. Genesis 41:1-4. Those who will help you will no longer rest before they render help to you.
There are three major responses when you pray;
  • Before they call, He will answer. Jeremiah 33:3.Follow the procedure. Psalm 50:14-15
  • Before they call, I can answer. (Acts 15:18, Exodus 15:22-25.)God says before they call, I will answer. God is
going to answer somebody here tonight. (Psalm 103:8, Ephesians 2:4-5, Psalm 106:7-8)
  • I will do it for my namesake. He will answer you tonight for
various reasons; You are a child of God, you are His branch, you are His ambassador. Another new name of yours is 'The Elect of God'. It means God's favourite, God's beloveth.

Don't let anybody deceive you by saying God loves us equally.
God is not just my Father, He's my Daddy. To use the language of the young ones, He's my popsy. If you have not given your life to Jesus Christ, you haven't started a relationship with Him, not to talk of being His favorite. Please come and give your life to Jesus Christ now.

Prayer Point For Day 4
Father, please send help to me.




Ecc 4:9-12 says two are better than one because they have a good reward...If one falls the other will pick him up.Woe unto him who is alone because when he falls there is no help for him. For the rest of your life you will never fight battles alone....It is easier to achieve success when you are part of a team.

Deut 32: 28 -30 One shall put . 1000 to flight...If one fellow  can achieve victory over . 1000 people, in divine mathematics two people will defeat ten thousand. In Ex 4:10-17 when God was sending Moses to go and face Pharaoh Moses was afraid but God sent Aaron to go with him. When you obtain dominion you will require help to be able to retain the dominion. For Example in Numbers 17: 8-13 Aaron and Hur helped Joshua to win the physical battle against the Amalekites by supporting the hands of Moses to be lifted unto God. When Moses lifted up his hands Israel was winning but when his hands came down as a result of tiredness Israel started losing. So Aaron and Hur were on hand to keep the hands of Moses up.
In 2 Samuel 21:15-17 when David waxed faint during the war against the Philistines, it was Abishai who helped David to kill the Philistine who attacked David.
In Daniel 1:8 Daniel told members of his house fellowship Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego as a team that they should refuse the portion of the King's meat.
In Daniel 2:17-18 when the king threatened to kill all the wise men of Israel for not interpreting his dream, Daniel again went to meet with members of his house fellowship for them to pray together.It is easier to seek after the welfare of members through the House Fellowship. When Daniel was promoted in Daniel 2:48-49 as Chief of the Governors in Babylon, he also recommended the members of his house fellowship, Meshach  Shadrach and Abednego for promotion.
If you allow your children to attend House Fellowship they will not mix with fools. Paul describe those who argue about the resurrection of Christ as fools 1 Cor 15:35-36. According to Prov 13:20 "He who walks with the wise shall be wise but a companion of fools shall be destroyed". Be wise as parents and get your children to be wise by associating with other believers through the house fellowship.

Categories Of Fools
1.Ananias and Saphirra fell into the category of fools. As members of the house fellowship they sold their possession but lied about it.
2. Those who refuse to host house fellowship centres are not wise. In Rom 16:10  Paul acknowledged Arisitobulus and Narcissus for offering their houses as house fellowship centres. Paul also saluted Aquila and Priscilla from whose house the Churches of Asia started. Your house fellowship can become a church in your street. It can be said of you one day that your house is the Headquarters of our Region.
3. In Acts 16:25 Paul and Silas, although they could not go to church because they were imprisoned. But inside the prison they had their house fellowship. As a result of their fervent prayers the prison doors opened for them and they even went ahead to lead the jailer to Christ.

Offer your house for house fellowship to retain your dominion. You must also make it a point of duty to attend house fellowship meetings regularly.

1. Father,  destroy every prison door in my life and that of my neighbours.
2. Father, destroy everything hindering my dominion in the name of Jesus.
3. Father, destroy everything hindering my prosperity.

66th Annual convention Day 2 Message

Theme: Dominion
Speaker:Pst. E. A Adeboye
Text :2 COR. 5:17

New is the opposite of old, it is the opposite of used to be.  Creature is something made from the scratch, not something refurbished,  repainted or copied.

John 3:4-8. A new creature in Christ has no old history.
2cor.4:2 Paul said I wronged no man. The moment you say I do to Jesus,  you are a new creature.

The old man was under the dominion of sin Roman's 6:16. The one you yield yourself to serve you are the servant of that person.  A teacher teaches, a singer sings and a sinner sins.

1) Ezekiel 18:4 The soul that sinneth shall die.

2) Psalms 107:17-18 when you are under the
dominion of sin you are under the dominion of sickness.
Mark 2:1-12

3)When you are under the dominion of sin you are under hardship. Proverbs 13:15

4) 1John 3:8 You are under the control of the devil

5)You are Subject to many sorrows: Plsm 32:12, 16:4.

6)You are subject to constant divine anger. Psalm 7:11. God is angry with the wicked every day.

7) You are subject to fear.  Isaiah 3:11 fear of all kinds especially fear of the future.

*What makes the new creature so wonderful is that he has dominion over sin.  Roman's 6: 6-14.

Saul of Tarsus died on the road to Damascus. When he got up from the ground he was anew man.. Dead with Christ. Suddenly everything changes because now you can't be no longer dominated by the devil. James 4:7

You become a terror.
Mathew 11:28-30 *Hardship is no longer your portion . Failure can't no longer have dominion over you.  Philippians 4:13

Sorrow can no longer have dominion over you. Psalm 32:11.
You have  joy. Happiness and joy is not the same thing.  Happiness is what you have when something happens but joy is like a spring, it comes from the Lord. You begin to enjoy divine love instead of divine anger.
Roman 8:35-37

Your dominion is recognized in Heaven the moment you say I do to Jesus.  John 1:11-12, 2peter 1:4. There are no bastards in the kingdom of Heaven. Revelation 5:8-10. You are a royal priesthood,  you are a king because your father is the king of kings. The devil knows when you are genuinely born again. You are recognized on earth,  in heaven and by the Devil himself.
Ecclesiastes 2:4-10

How to enjoy your dominion
1). Become an incurable soul winner. Go for souls. Bear fruits..

2) Become an incurable restorer of backsliders.
Anyone who is a backslider, go after them until they are back.

3). Use your faith to move your mountain. Mark 11:23. Believe! Do your part of believing and let God do his own part.  It's not your duty to heal the sick, your own is to believe and lay hands. And watch God do the rest.

If you are a new creature you are a believer,  if you are a believer you have faith, and if you have faith nothing can stand between you and your dominion.

Father in the mighty name of Jesus,  I command every obstruction, every mountain to my dominion,  I command you to Move right now in the name of Jesus.

Welcome Service, Day 2 - Evening Session
Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye

Bless the Lord.Give  Him glory for the mighty things He has done.

Worship the King of king
Father, if you are giving dominion to two  people only during this Convention, let me be one of them.

We give You all the glory
We give You honour
We give You all the glory
We give You honour

Topic: The new creature

Text: 2 Corinthians 5:17
I'm believing God for you tonight that everything will become new in your life.

New is the opposite of old, opposite of 'used to be. Creature is something made from scratch, not refurbished, repainted or copied

John 3:1-8 Jesus said, "you must be born again." A new creature in Christ has no history,

2 Corinthians 7:2. When the saul of Tarsus met the Lord on the road to Damascus, it wasn't the same man that fell from the horse that got up. A brand new man indeed.

When a lady goes into the church to get married and says the "I do," she isn't the same 'miss' that went in. She is now a married woman.

Should she divorce the man, she won't be called a lady anymore but a divorcee.

The same goes with the man. The moment you go to Jesus, you are now a new creature.

Let the new creature shout hallelujah.

New here implies there was an old.

Romans 6:16 states that you are the servant of the One you yield to. Your nature used to be sin, that made you a sinner because you used to sin. Sickness is an agent of death.

When you are under the Dominion of sin, you are under the Dominion of sickness, Mark 2:1-12, Psalm 107:17-18

When under the dominion of sin, you are subject to hardship, subject to the domination of forces of darkness. - John 8:32 - And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

1 John 3:8 Proverbs 13:15, A sinner is subject to many sorrows Psalms 32:10, Psalms 16:4.

When you are under the dominion of sin, you are subject to constant divine anger.

Psalms 7:11 When you are under the dominion of sin, you are subject to fear of all kinds, particularly of an uncertain future

Isaiah 3:11 What makes being a new creature so wonderful is that you have dominion over sin, Romans 6:6-14. Because you are new creature,everything changes for the best for you. Now, you can no longer be dominated by the devil.

James 4:7. You can even become a terror to the devil.

Matthew 11:28-30, Hardship will no longer have dominion over you.
The moment you become a new creature, the rest of your life will be in joy,

Psalms 32:11.
Joy isn't the same as happiness. It is a spring that flows irrespective of what's going on around you. It's from God. Instead of divine anger, you begin to enjoy divine love which is very much available. The availability of this love births the realisation of Dominion

Romans 8: 35-37 Your Dominion as a new creature is recognized in Heaven the moment you say I do to Jesus Christ

John 1:11-12, As soon as you surrender your life to Christ, you become partakers of the divine nature

2 Peter 1:4, I can boldly say I am a god, I am the true son of the Almighty God. “The child of an elephant is an elephant. The child of a dog is a dog. The child of God is a god”

You shouldn't be afraid to say that too. Let me assure you, there are no bastards in God's family.

Revelations 5:10 The moment you give your life to Jesus, you become a king! Your Father is the King of kings. Your dominion is not just recognised in heaven, it is also recognised in hell. The devil knows when you are genuinely born again or not, Some seven sons of Sceva thought they could use the name of Jesus as Paul did. They got the beating of their lives because their real identities were known. Does the devil know you as a Son of God?  - Acts 19:11-17. You are not only recognized, but angels become your servants. Even on earth, you are to reign on earth

Hebrews 1:1-
What to do to enjoy permanently Dominion?
3 things…. John 15:16

1. Be radical about preaching the gospel of Jesus. May the Almighty make you an incurable soul winner in Jesus' name.

2. Go after backsliders. Every time you lose a member, you diminish your #Dominion. There is power in number.

3. Faith Hebrews 11:6, use your faith to move your mountains.

Mark 11:23.
It is not your duty to heal the sick, just lay hands, believe and go. You are too small to uproot mountains, just believe, and trust God to move the mountains! Wisdom is correct application of knowledge. A new creature is not a reformed or refurbished life, it is not a rebuilt life, it is a new life from the scratch. Only God can make this possible through Jesus. If you are yet to surrender your life to Jesus, this is your opportunity. Surrender to Jesus Christ and become a new creature

TOPIC: The spirit of excellence

TEXT: Daniel 6:1-3

Prophecy: From today onward, you will know excellence.

There is a link between dominion and excellence. When we compare things in life, we have them in good Gen. 1:1-4, reading further in Gen. 1:31 there is something called better, then in Gen. 2:18 we have the word best.

In the text read, there were 120princes in the state that were good, but the king went a step further and choose three presidents to oversee the 120 princes and these three presidents fell in the better group which among them, Daniel was the team lead which makes him the best, but there was more to him which made him better than them all and that is called EXCELLENCE.

When we talk about best, it is a matter of comparing three things, and sometimes, it doesn’t means something good. Excellence is about something so good that it cannot even be better. There is a link between excellence and dominion.

When we talk about excellence, there are degrees of excellence
One of the ways to know the secret of an excellence spirit is that it keeps getting better and better.

Joseph started off as a good dreamer. Gen. 37:5-11 He had beautiful dreams, and then he moved on from dreaming to interpreting dreams. Gen. 14:1-23 He became an interpreter of other people’s dreams.  Then in Gen. 41, he became the interpreter of a dream that affected his world.

When Joseph was in Potiphars house, he had dominion. Gen. 39: 1-6 He was in charge of all that was going on in Potiphar’s house, but he was a slave a dominant one. And when he got to Pharaoh’s house he was in charge of Egypt as the Prime minister Gen. 41:1-44 Even as the prime minister in Egypt, he was still waiting for something and it came in Gen. 50:15-21
To excel, to really be the dominant one, you need the spirit of excellence. Excellence is a spirit. Deut. 34:9 Joshua was full of excellence and wisdom because Moses had laid his hand on him.

2Kings 2:9-15 Elisha got double portion of excellence spirit from Elijah. Acts 9:10-22 After Paul got converted to Christ and became the most prominent among the apostles, God sent his apostle to lay hand on him to receive his anointing.

Philippians 3:4-14 Paul forgot about the things that were behind and focused on the future. People who have the spirit of excellence are never satisfied with where they are. They always want more, more progress and want to go higher. The appreciate God for all he has done for them, but they always ask for more.

When you have the spirit, you become hungry everyday for more because God has a lot more to give you and you have to keep the fire burning.

When you have the spirit of excellence, you will never stand still.  2Kings 4:1-7 The story of Elisha, 2Kings 4:8-17 He was used by God for different things, but he didn’t stop there, he went back to the mountain to go seek the face of God for more.

2Kings 2:1-15 He became the leader of at most 150 sons of prophet and yet he didn’t stop there, 2 Kings 6:1-7 He went back to the mountain. 2Kings 6:8-23 He left the mountain to become a king in Israel 2Kings 7, 2Kings 13. He was determining the future of Israel before he died.

Joshua 14:6-14 Caleb said to Joshua that he should give him this mountain, He didn’t ask for Ordinary Mountain, but a mountain full of giants. He was ready to deal with them all and eat them for breakfast.

Never be satisfied with being average when you can be dominant, you can be an excellent person. Your vision should be so high that it will take only God to make it come to pass. When you have low vision it makes you come to the house of God to joke. It is because your visions are low that you bring jesters to come entertain you in the house of prayers. Stop insulting God by your request. Stop asking for third hand cars and things when your heavenly Father owns gold’s and silvers, when he made the earth and owns all that are in it. Every child of God is expected to take dominion all over the world.

1. Father, I do not want to be ordinary, I want to be an excellent Christian. Release your excellence spirit upon me.
