In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Well, let someone shout hallelujah.
Please be seated.
I rejoice with you because God has kept us thus far, and I trust Him that He will keep us till the very end.
Tonight, we are looking at Let There Be Light Part 10, subtitled: Dream Again.
Our text is Genesis chapter 37 from verse 5 to 11:
5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.
6 And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:
7 For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.
8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
10 And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
11 And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.
This Joseph fellow must be quite an interesting young man.
You dreamed one dream, they hated you for it; and then you dream a bigger, and instead of keeping your mouth shout, he relayed the dream again to his brethren.
The Bible said the brethren had gone beyond hating him, they envied him.
I pray that before this night is over, you will dream a dream that will cause you to become the envy of your brethren.
What is a Dream?
The Bible describes a Dream as vision of the night - Job 33 verse 15.
In other words, a dream basically is what you saw while sleeping.
Is like light breaking through the darkness of the night coming towards you, and then revealing something to you.
It is like enjoying, according to the word of God, the blessings of the future before it arrives.
For example, in Isaiah 29 verse 8, it says, a dream is like somebody who is hungry, and in the dream, he saw himself eating, he wakes up to discover he still hungry.
Or like someone who is tasty, and in the dream he finds himself drinking, he wakes up to find himself still tasty.
In other words, in the dream you have a taste of something that is yet to happen in the future.
A hungry man will eat when he wakes up, but in the dream is already eating.
A thirsty man will drink when he wakes up, but in the dream, he is already drinking.
I am praying for all of you that the Almighty God will bring your future close to the presence.
There is something that is a gift that many of us take for granted; there is a very precious gift, it is the ability to sleep – it is a very precious gift from God.
In Psalm 127 verse 2, the Bible says God give His beloveth sleep.
In other words, the ability to sleep is a gift that God give to His beloveth ones.
There are those of us who can sleep easily, we should be grateful to God, because it is not everybody who can sleep as at when they wanted it.
Sleep is such a wonderful gift.
Number one: Sleep opens the door to rest.
In Matthew chapter 26 verse 45, the Lord said to the disciples who were sleeping at a time when they should be praying: He said okay, okay, you can sleep on now, have your rest.
Sleep opens the door to rest.
When you are tired, you sleep, you are likely to wakeup refreshed.
Sleep enables you to forget your problems at least for a while.
When you are sleeping, you will forget what is your immediate problem.
I mean, for example:
In Genesis chapter 28 from verse 10 to 11, Jacob was running away from Esau, but when he became tired, he fell asleep; he was not even caring too much now about who is pursuing.
In 1Kings chapter 19 from verse 1 to 8, Elijah was running from Jezebel who had promise I am coming to take off your head, but when he was tired, he fell asleep – Jezebel or no Jezebel.
When you are sleeping, it does not matter your problem, you forget it at least for a while.
But, far far more significant about the blessedness of sleep is that it opens the door to dreams; it opens the door to dreams.
In that Genesis 28 that I referred to just now, (Genesis 28, if you read it all the way from verse 10 to 12), when Jacob was sleeping, he dreamt.
Sleep opens the door to dreams.
All of you who are having problem sleeping, I pray that problem will end today.
Oh! Sleep is just a good thing.
There are people like me, will can fall asleep standing up.
May God give you that pleasure of being able to sleep anytime you want to sleep in Jesus’ name.
So, sleep opens the door to dreams.
And then, dreams open the doors to several things.
Number one: A dream can open the door to divine Visitation –
Genesis chapter 28 verse 12 - when Jacob started dream, he saw a ladder, reaching up to heaven; he saw angels coming down, climbing the upward, and he saw the Almighty God Himself at the top of the ladder.
He had a divine visitation.
You see, many at times, God wants to visit you but you are too busy - you are running up and down, you were going to the office, you were going to office you are phoning all the way back home, and then…
But when you are asleep, and you are in a dream, God can now say, okay I have you now all to Myself.
So, dreams can open the door to conversation with God.
God can talk to you and you can talk back to God.
Like in Genesis 28 from verse 13 to 15, God began to speak to Jacob: I AM the God of Abraham your father, I made him some promises, and these promises I AM going to fulfil through you.
And in 2Chronicles chapter 1 from verse 6 to 12, the Bible said, after Solomon had offered the thousands offering to God, and God was happy at what he had done; God paid him in visit and a conversation began.
God said, what do you want?
And he replied, what I want?
Yes, I want wisdom, I want understanding, I want ability to look after Your people very well.
They were discussing.
The Bible says when Solomon woke up, he then realized that it was a dream, I have been having a conversation with God, it is a dream.
And then, dream opens the door (number three) to revelation of the future – things yet to come.
The Almighty God said in Numbers chapter 12 verse 6 that when He wants to talk to some prophets, He talk to them in dreams.
And in the case of Joseph, the text we read, it was while he was dreaming that God showed him what was coming in the future.
Your brothers are coming to bow down before you; and somehow, the brothers they interpreted the dream correctly.
And in Genesis chapter 41 from verse 1 to 32, the Almighty God revealed to Pharaoh what was going to happen, He gave him to dreams.
One, he saw some cows very fat, eating, enjoying themselves, seven I think of them; and all of a sudden, there were seven ugly ones that came, and ate up the fat ones.
He saw some beautiful sheep, seven of them; and them he saw seven blasted ears that came and ate up the beautiful ones.
He had dreams that he just could not forget; he woke up terrified.
At the end of the day, when the dreams were interpreted to him, he realized something is coming to happen.
I pray that God will reveal something beautiful to you in your dreams.
And dreams can open the door to divine guidance.
When God wants to guide you as to what to do, He can do it through dreams.
For example, in Matthew chapter 1 verse 18 to 21, when Mary was pregnant through the intervention of the Holy Spirit, and Joseph the one who was to marry her was thinking of putting her away privately, Joseph had a dream.
And the Almighty God told him what you are about to do is wrong, don’t put her away; the child in her is of the Holy Spirit, take her to yourself.
Guidance as to what to do.
In Matthew chapter 2 from verse 7 to 12, the Bible said when the wisemen came to see the Lord Jesus Christ, after they branched in the palace to find out where is this King that is born,
And the king said to them, go and find out where the King is, and then come and tell me so that I can go and worship Him also,
The wisemen had a dream, the Lord told them, don’t go back to that king, he is a deceiver, he does not mean well for the child that had been born, go another way.
In the same Matthew chapter 2 from verse 13 to 15, the Bible says after the wisemen left God told Joseph, get up now, take the child and the mother and run, because the king will soon be coming to kill your boy, move.
So, there could be divine guidance as to what to do through dreams.
You are at times when you are praying, you are at a cross road, you don’t know what to do next, should I turn right, should I turn left, the Almighty God in His mercy can pay you a visit in a dream and guide you and said this is what I want you to do, this is the way to go, this is the where you should turn etcetera
And then of course, dreams can lead to divine warnings.
When you are already in danger and you don’t even know it, God can give you a dream that will tell you that you are already in danger, and this is what you must do rapidly to get out of the danger.
Like in Genesis chapter 20 from verse 1 to 18 - a king had taking the wife of Abraham; it is not the fault of the king; it was Abraham who told the king this who is my sister.
Beautiful woman! Over seventy years old and she was still a beauty queen.
The said, haa, really! Then I must take her and join her to my wives.
But the Almighty God in His infinite mercy visited this king in a dream and told him, you are dead man.
Haa! What have I done?
You have taking the wife of not just an ordinary man; you have taking the wife of a prophet; you are dead.
In the dream, the king could converse with God: Almighty God, You know that this man deceived me, I did this one in innocent; are you going to destroy a just man for doing something that he did not know?
And God said, that is alright, I know you did not know that is while I kept you from coming near her.
Now, very very quickly, hand the wife back to the husband.
You know the rest of the story.
In the meantime, there had been all manners of problem in the palace as a result of what the king had done.
The king woke up, told all his household I had a dream, this is what happened, and everybody became terrified, and they sent for Abraham.
The king said, why have you done this to me?
Abraham said I thought there is no fear of God here and I don’t want you to kill me because of my wife that was while I told you she is my sister, and actually, she is my half-sister – the daughter of my father, but not of my mother.
The king says thank you, sister or no sister take your wife and go.
And immediately, I mean, the king gave Abraham all manners of treasures; immediately God heal the entire people in the palace: wombs that had been shut began to open, the sick were healed.
This king got a warning from the Almighty God through a dream.
Are you having problems in your homes?
Are you having problems in your place of work?
Could it be you are already in danger and you don’t know it?
It is my prayer that before tomorrow morning as you sleep, God will give you a warning.
Now, what about other people dreaming?
I am not talking about you dreaming now, because we have seen a dream can be a very powerful weapon in the hand of God.
Suppose somebody else dreamed, could that affect you?
God can use the dream of another person to fulfil His purpose in your life.
He can use the dream of another fellow to fulfil your own dreams.
For example – Genesis chapter 41 from verse 1 to 44 tells us about the dreams of Pharaoh that I mentioned earlier on, and it is this dream that led to the promotion of Joseph – from prison to the throne.
It is another fellow who dreamt, this time…, I mean, Joseph dreamt thrice and after that he never dreamt another dream.
For God to fulfil that unbelievable dreams that he had, God gave another fellow dreams that led to fulfilment of the dreams of Joseph.
At times, God wants to reward his servant, somebody who had pleased God and He wants to give him a reward, and he go and give a dream to somebody else; entirely different person that at the end of the day will lead to a great blessing to someone who had been faithful to God.
For example – Daniel chapter 1, you can read the whole story.
Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, they were in a foreign land; the king said they should be eating his food, drinking his wine, but these boys said, no, we don’t want to defile ourselves, we belong to God, we won’t compromise
And then, by the time you now get to Daniel chapter 2, that same king now had a dream and forgot the dream – very terrifying dream,
If he had not forgotten the dream, all his so called wisemen, sorcerers, astrologers, they would have given him a false interpretation.
But God had Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, in mind, so the king forgot the dream.
Finally, they brought in Daniel, he repeated the dream and gave interpretation.
The king was impressed, he promoted him immediately.
He came in as a slave, but because of the dream of another fellow promotion came, and then, Daniel said sir, if I have found favour with you, I have some friends, they need promotion too.
The king said anything you want you can have.
In the Name that is above every other name, that fellow that God will use to promote you, that fellow that God will use to enable you fulfil all your dreams, may that fellow have a dream very very soon.
And then, God could use the dream of another person to encourage His servant.
He had given you an assignment, you are not sure you are able to handle the assignment
Oh, you just hear somebody having a dream and you hear the dream, and sudden you know now I know what God is saying, he is talking about me.
You want an example?
Judges chapter 7 from verse 7 to 15
God had given Gideon an assignment that was practically unreasonable (humanly speaking):
He is asking Gideon with three hundred men to face an army of three hundred thousand men.
How do you confront three hundred thousand people with three hundred men?
But then, God encouraged him by saying go down to the camp of the enemy at night and listen to what you will hear there.
And Gideon went quietly, by the time they arrived at the camp one of the soldiers of the enemy was relating his dreams to another soldier – I dreamt such and such and such.
His friends said that must be the defeat that is coming our way through Gideon.
Gideon heard that one and said I don’t need further information; he came back to his camp, and he was ready for victory.
I pray that dream that is going to lead you to total victory, somebody will relate it to your hearing very soon in Jesus name.
But talking about dreams now generally, the kind of dream will have in mind for tonight is your own personal dreams, and we are not talking about dreams you have at night, we are not talking about visions at night,
We are talking about dreams that is talking about what you personally will want to become in the future – where you want to be, where you want to reach, what you want to achieve, what you want to possess.
At times they call it daydreaming – when you are thinking of somethings so big that if you share it with your colleagues, they will say you are daydreaming.
I will give you an illustration.
Some of you have heard me tell the story before.
1951, I was in primary school and the Bishop of Ibadan Diocese at that time, the Bishop of Ibadan Diocese covers the whole of western region, Anglican Bishop, came to visit my village in Ife-wara; I am talking about 1951.
At that time, I know all the people in the whole village that have shoes, without any doubt they were less than ten.
I am talking of the time, only two lorries come to the village in a day, and one is called Huston, the other is called Bretford – only the old ones will know what I am talking about.
When they are kilometers from the town, you can tell which one is coming.
Bretford has a barytone; Huston is a soprano; never seen a car before,
And then, the Bishop came, Lord God Almighty, he came in a brand new black car, he wore the robe (you know the Anglican love robe); all of us children in primary school we were asked to line the root for him to come in,
The hunters were not allowed to go to the farm, they were there firing their guns to welcome him,
And then he drove into town, and when he was coming out of the car was just where I was standing, and I looked at his feet and I saw brand new shoe, shining,
Haa, my mouth was wide opened, because the car was coming so quietly that you did not even know something was coming, it is not like Bretford or Huston,
And then the villagers had nothing to give the Bishop other than what they had in the farm: they brought yams, they brought chickens, they brought eggs,
When I got home that day, I told my mother, when I grow older, I am going to be a Bishop
You call that daydreaming.
Of course, years passed, I dropped out of church as soon as I left home, and I mean every thought of Bishop ended.
But, somewhere along the line, the Lord met me, save my soul.
Then, came 1981, and I became the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and I was visiting our little little churches, there were thirty-nine branches then, and one of them was in Ife-wara,
And when my people in Ife-wara heard that I was coming, they decided to give me a welcome:
The children from primary school line the root, the hunters did not go to the farm, they were firing their guns,
I drove into the town with a brand new car, and as I was about to come out of the car, I looked at my shoes they were black and shinning, and remember the dream of thirty-one years ago, or thirty years ago.
I pray for every one of you who have had some great dreams and they are not yet fulfilled, before the end of this year, the fulfilment shall come.
Now, so the question then is…, because our theme is Dream Again, …why must you dream again?
Why must you dream again?
Well, maybe because your first dream did not materialize.
Maybe you dreamed before and that first dream failed, dream again, God is still on His throne.
In Genesis chapter 29 verse 15 to 25, the Bible tells us about the same fellow called Jacob, he saw Rachael, fell in love with Rachael, told the father, I will serve you seven years to marry your daughter.
Seven years came the father of Rachael who happened to be the number one four-one-nine man, gave Jacob Leah instead of Rachael,
And then, Jacob was so madly in love, he did not even check the face of the woman that was brought in that night, but when he woke the following morning, he saw I have been cheated.
And when he confronted the father, the father said you still want Rachael, no problem, serve another seven years.
Then, for another seven years he kept on dreaming for the day when the love of his life will come into his camp.
He dreamt again, and the second dream was fulfilled.
In Acts of the Apostle from verse 1 to 8, the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, when they are going about with Him, they had dreams, they had dream that one day Jesus Christ will be in power, He will be ruling in Israel, and they would be Ministers,
I am sure one of them was probably thinking to be Minister of Finance.
But then, when Jesus died, their dreams collapsed.
In Acts chapter 1 you read it from verse 1, when Jesus Christ appeared to them, and He was about to be taking away from them, the only thing they asked Him was, will You now return power to Israel?
After all, You were here, they killed You; You are alive now they cannot kill you anymore, can the Government now begin?
They were dreaming again.
And Jesus Christ said, one thing I can promise you is, you shall receive power when the Holy Ghost is come upon you; the power you are going to get is not the kind of power you were dreaming about, but you will get power.
Why must you dream again?
It is possible is not just one dream that you had that failed, maybe you have had dreams upon dreams, upon dreams, and they did not come to pass, dream again; just one more dream and you will make it.
In Mark chapter 5 from verse 25 to 34, the Bible tells us the story of the woman with issue of blood.
Each time she went to one physician, she dreamt that through this physician I will be made whole.
One physician failed; transferred her to another, and this time she dreamed, okay, this is a specialist now who will solve my problem until she finished everything she have, and did get better but grew worst.
Then, she heard that there is someone who would not even charge you for healing you.
She dreamt again, and you could see that she was dreaming of total healing this time, because the Bible said she kept on saying to herself if I just but touch the hem of His garment, if I can just touch the hem of His garment, I will be made whole.
She had another dream, and this time the dream was fulfilled.
Or you look at John chapter 5 verse 2 to 9, it tells us the story of a man who had been at the pool of Bethesda for thirty-eight years, he had been dreaming.
Each time they say happy new year, he dreamt, this time around when the angels comes to trouble the waters, I will be the first inside, that was while he did not go back home.
He was dreaming, and each year was failing, but he kept on dreaming, until finally, not an angel came, He is the Creator of Angels that came.
I am sure we are in November, some of us we have been saying at the beginning of this year, I thought several things will happen to me by now and they have not yet happened, dream again, dream again.
And before we enter the New Year in the name of Jesus Christ, we will hear testimony.
Why dream again?
Maybe you dreamt and the dream came to pass, but then now you are in a crisis, dream again.
Because if you read the story in 2Samuel chapter 19 (if you like you can read whole story) from the beginning to the end:
David had dreamt that he will become the king of Israel, his dream came to pass.
And now, he had been in revote, Absalom had chased him out of the throne, and there had been war, and now Absalom was dead, but now David was in exile.
He is a king, but a king in exile, and he dreamt of getting back on his throne.
The Bible said, he sent messengers to his brethren: I am still your king! I am still alive! Bring me back to my throne!
And they send a message to him: yes sir, you can come back.
You had a dream, everything was going well, now you are facing unimaginable crisis, dream again
I assure in the Name that is above every other name, everything you have lost shall be fully restored.
Could it be you dreamt, you succeeded the dream, it came to pass, everything is going fine, no crisis, but you just want to move from hilltop to mountain top,
You want to dream of something bigger, something better, you want to go higher, go ahead, dream again.
I mean, consider Elisha in 1Kings chapter 19 from verse 19 to 21 – the day that mantle fell on him, from Elijah, and he became a servant to Elijah, he began to dream; and there are many sons of the prophets as you know,
So, he found out that I might be coming into the…, shall we call it school of prophet late, but one day, I will become the favorite of Elijah.
And he became the favorite of Elijah.
I mean, if you read 2Kings chapter 2 from verse 1 to 7, all the sons of the prophets, from the way they were talking to him, they were envious of him.
Papa son, do you know God is going to take your master from off your head?
They did not say God is going to take away ‘our’ master – ‘your’ master, because he had become the favorite boy.
He dreamt that he would become the favorite, and he became favorite.
But then, he dreamt another dream, I don’t want to become the favorite, I want to become the prophet, I want to become the father of all the prophets; I don’t want to become just like my father, I want to be greater -
That is some serious daydreaming, very serious daydreaming.
Because, when, 2Kings chapter 2 from verse 9 to 15, when he told his dream as it were to Elijah, Elijah said you have asked for a hard thing.
Remember when Elijah something is hard, that thing must be really hard.
Because, you have to remember this is a man who called fire down from heaven, this is a man who made situation practically impossible for God in Mount Carmel by saying that they should soak the offering and the wool with water, so many time that the water was running about,
This is a man who as such an incredible faith in God that water cannot stop the fire of God.
That is Elijah that he said to this boy: this your dream en!
Is just like the father of Joseph said to him: are you alright boy?
But you know the rest of the story, the dream came to pass.
Let me begin to move towards my conclusion.
Why must you dream again?
No matter how great you are today, you can be greater.
It does not matter how ridiculous your dreams may sound, as my God lives, the same God who fulfilled the dream of Joseph will fulfil yours.
I have said it before, when you share dream, the way we will know that the dream as the backing of God is that those who hear it will laugh, they would want you to stop, they think something is wrong with you.
In Genesis 37 verse 5 to 11 that we read as our text, the father of Joseph had no problem believing that his brothers will bow before him – no problem,
But when this boy was talking about the sun, the moon, eleven stars, bowing down to him, the Bible said the father rebuked him – you are not just dreaming now boy, you have been over bored.
But then, you know the result.
You see, the Bible says in Ecclesiastes chapter 7 verse 8, He said better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof.
Are you a true child of the living God?
You have not seen anything yet.
Because the word of God says clear in Proverb 4 verse 18, He says the path of the just is as shining light, shining more and more until the perfect day,
In John chapter 2 from verse 1 to 11, I have preached on that passage to you before, and I say the biggest lesson in that story of the wedding in Cana of Galilee is that reserve the best till the last.
Dream again; it does not matter how successful you are now, dream again.
Because your best is yet to come.
And I want to encourage you even further, because there are some of here listening to me wherever you are, how I wish I heard the sermon when I was young?
How about dreaming a dream that only your son can see the fulfilment thereof?
Dream a dream so big that is only your children will see the fulfilment of that dream, and they will then tell our father dreamt of this kind of greatness.
In Genesis 15:12 to 16, there was a dream that Abraham had that one day his children will be as the stars of heaven.
He never saw that fulfilment.
But the Bible says in Exodus 12 from verse 37 to 40, when the children of Abraham were leaving Egypt, they counted six hundred thousand men without children.
Abraham did not see the hundred children, but there were hundred of thousands fulfilled in the time of his children.
As a matter of fact, according to Galatians chapter 3 verse 9, every Christian is of the seed of Abraham.
Today, now he has more children than you can count.
I am sure you will remember a man called Martin Lutha King, he had a dream, decades ago; at a time, the black man in America was a nobody,
He said, I have a dream, a day is coming when even the black man in America will become somebody very special.
He did not live to see a black man becoming president, but he had a dream.
Then, I will tell you the story that you know very well.
Way back in 1979, when Papa and I and some people when to America to attend Kenneth Hagen Camp meeting.
We finished the camp meeting on Saturday, on Sunday we went to one of the churches to worship, and they put us in front because we are visitors,
And I was seating next to Papa, interpreting what the preacher was saying to him,
And all of a sudden, the preacher came down from the altar, stood in front of Papa, and Papa was easy to identify among the whole crowd,
And he began to say, thus saith the Lord, what I promised you is about to come to pass.
Then, he turned around, went back to the altar, and continue to preach.
Papa turned to me and say, haha, what did he say?
I say, I will tell you when we get home.
We got home, Papa say, what did he say?
I say en en, you tell me first what are things God promised you?
And he said, well, He told me that the church He is starting through me will go round the whole world.
I said what that man said what God promised you is about to come to pass.
And the old man began to look; some months later, he went to be with the Lord.
At that time, the Redeemed Christian of Church was just in the South West of Nigeria, but today, that dream is already coming to pass.
Dream a dream so big that even if it does not to fulfilment in your own time, your children will see it happen.
You know, the Bible says, according to Jeremiah 29 verse 11 that God created you for something great.
Don’t limit your own greatness, dream big.
Well, my children have always come near to me, those who are close and said, Daddy, you keep on saying that when build an auditorium the size of Ibadan then we will just be starting, then, when are we going to arrive?
When we start, I will tell you how further you still have to go.
Tonight, when you go to God in prayer, I beg you, don’t ask Him for small things, dream again.
But in conclusion.
In Proverbs 10 verse 28, the Almighty God said, the hope the righteous shall be gladness, but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
Do you know what that means?
The dream of the righteous is going to end in gladness.
The dream, no matter how big; have had dreams, and God had much much much more than even my dream.
If you are close to me, they used to call me the dreamer.
I had the dream I will be the youngest Vice Chancellor in Africa.
Hey, today, I am not the Vice Chancellor of a University, there are many VCs calling me Daddy.
A time I was having the dream of becoming the youngest Vice Chancellor in Africa, I never knew I could have a University of my own.
But your dreams cannot begin to come through until you surrender to the One who can fulfil dreams.
When I say that, Mama, when I grow up, I am going to be a Bishop, that dream was only fulfilled because I become born again,
I am not a Bishop in title, but by the grace of God I believe I do the work of a Bishop.
I beg you if you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, so that your dreams can end in joy, in gladness, surrender to the One who is the Fulfiller of dreams.
So, wherever you are and you have listened to this, will please bow your head and cry to Jesus Christ to save your soul, and I will join in prayer that He will give you a new beginning, so that your dreams will not perish but end in gladness.
Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.
Ask Him to save your soul, promise Him that you will stay close to Him for the rest of your life, and I can assure He will fulfil your dreams.
Thank You Father.
And so, my Father and my God I want to thank You once again for Your word, I want to thank You for the revelation on it; I want to thank You for all the people, I cannot see them but they can see me, or at least they can hear me, who are surrendering their lives to You now, everyone of them please receive them, accept them, forgive them, wash them clean with your blood, save their souls, and write their names in the Book of Life and give them a brand new beginning; and from now on whatever may be their dream, let the dream end in gladness.
As for Your children who are already children of God, who have some dreams in the past and the dreams are yet to fulfilled, before the new year fulfil all their dreams. And when they dream big tonight, when they cry unto You for greater things, for more glorious days ahead, Father, answer them by fire. Thank You my Father.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
Praise the Lord.
Those who have given your live to Jesus Christ I will encourage you to please get in contact with me so that I will continue to pray for you in fulfilment of your dream
Those of us who are already children of the living God I will just ask you to prepare yourself, I don’t want to begin to dictate to you how to pray, because I don’t know the kind of dreams that you will want to dream.
But make sure you first of all thank the Almighty God for dreams that you have had in the past, that had been fulfilled. Thank Him for dreams that you had in the past but were not fulfilled, because when there is life there is hope.
And then, when you dream, big dreams tonight, cry unto Him and say: Father, let all my dreams come to pass Father, and even those dreams that might not even come to pass in my life time, let them come pass. Let my children far far far greater than I; let my children be far far far greater than myself.
And then you go ahead and presents some really really big dreams to the Almighty God, and I am believing God that even by the time we come for the Congress, will be hearing of testimonies of dreams that will already forgotten that God has started bringing to pass.
He will answer your prayers in Jesus’ name.
Words of Prophecies maybe you want to write these ones down, maybe there might be one or two them that are appropriate speaking to you.
The first one as to do with somebody who right now is in prison, and the Almighty God asked me to tell you, you will not die in prison.
Second one concerns someone who also is very very deep in problems, and He says you will understand as soon as I mention it. He asked me to tell you the clouds will clear away before the end of the year.
The third one, He asked me to tell whoever the fellow is, He said the door is already swinging open in your favour.
Then, He says there is someone too who will listen to me tonight, He asked me to tell you to ask again and the no will be come yes.
Then, He asked me to tell someone, He said I will separate you from those who are planning to kill your dreams.
And then, He said one which I know is for me, but I will share with you. He said I will send people to you who will help you fulfil your dreams.
And then He said, there is someone who for quiet a while had been saying Lord please speak to me too, (and I believe I heard this one before, but whoever it is that has been crying to God saying God speak to me too), the Lord asked me to tell you, your tomorrow will be alright.
And then there is another one, the last one, which I believe again is for me, but you can share. He says there is a well of blessings, the well is inexhaustible, and it is meant for you, He said very soon I will open your eye to see the well. (Please when you see the well, don’t forget to share the testimony with us.)
Add just one more thing to your prayers:
I want you to Him Himself, dreams so big that when they come pass the whole world will know that you are serving the Almighty God.
Ask God for your own dreams, make your own asking big; but after you have asked Him for everything big, then turn to Him and say God give me one Yourself; give me one so big that when it come to pass everybody will say definitely your God is the Almighty.
