Thank you my father and my God in Jesus mighty name we have prayed amen.
Let somebody shout halleluiah!
If there was a preacher that almost got me on my feet, this young man (G.O commenting on the preacher before him) has all the making of a great evangelist and he brought out a very significant truth; you cannot fight new battles with old anointing. You need new anointing to deal with the present situation in the world.
When David was going to face Goliath, King Saul gave him the armor, he said “No sir, the battle now has changed” I can’t use the old weapon to deal with the new battle. Brother I thank you very much for your insight. If that is the only sermon we heard tonight, it is enough.
I have been seriously touched by that sermon because that sermon is addressing the real reason why we are here tonight. Brethren the battle has changed, no doubt about that!
In our own time, when I was in the university and the student says that they are rioting, all we did, the most that we did, is that we blocked the gate of the university; nobody can come in, nobody can go out and then we get the branches of tree and begin to sing and to dance, that is our own protest. Throughout the days that I was in the university, not a single student died.
When somebody says he belong to the secret society in those days, they are just there to drink palm wine, they are there to make fun of girls who are not well dress.
There was never a single case where somebody killed another student, not in our time, but the battle has changed, things are different now. In our own time, probably the greatest distraction a student can have and that is the television that can be controlled.
Today, oh Lord have mercy!
while the parent are sleeping, the television is off but the Ipad is working, the Laptop is working, the children are surfing the internet, you are sleeping, you think all is well, and your child is learning how to make a bomb, from the internet. Brethren the battle has changed and we need new anointing to deal with the new problem and in the name that is above every other name, just as David overcame, we shall overcome.
The battle has changed; the elders need the new anointing to deal with the new situation in their families. The student needs new anointing; to deal with the new situation in their own lives. In my time, if you did science, when you are graduating, secondary school will come to the university to beg you to come and work, come and teach in our secondary schools, what kind of car do you want? So that we can bring it to your gate when you are leaving the university. Now you have a PhD, you have to apply.
The battle has changed; thank God the weapon has changed, thank God for a anew anointing, Thank God because we shall overcome.
Those of you who believe you shall be a winner let me hear you shout halleluiah!
The New Anointing
2Kings 2 v 9 -15 and so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken from you?’ Elisha said, “please late a double portion of your spirit be upon me: so he said “you have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not it shall not be so”
Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven and Elijah saw it and cried out, “my father, my father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen! So he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own cloth and tore them into pieces. He also took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan.
Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and struck the water, and said “where is the Lord God of Elijah?” And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that and Elisha crossed over. Now when the sons of the prophet who were from Jericho saw him, they said. “The spirit of Elijah rest on Elisha.” And they came to meet him, and bowed to the ground before him.
One of the preachers said you cannot talk about the new, without talking about the old, the truth of the matter is that the old anointing is the mother of the new, it is the spirit of Elijah, that thus rest on Elisha. The old anointing gives birth to the new and because the old anointing is the mother of the new, then the genes of the old is in the new.
The two anointing have certain things in common; both of them are anointing. Whether you call one old and the other new, at least they are both anointing. And when you look at the story we have read tonight, and I am going to be very brief, because I want us to pray tonight, we need that anointing urgently. We see that both the old and the new clear obstacles.
When Elijah wanted to cross River Jordan, he used his mantle but he used it to smite the river and the river divided into two. When Elisha wanted to cross to the other side; he also took the mantle, smite the river and Jordan parted.
In Exodus 14 v 21 -28 when Moses wanted to take the children of Israel through the red sea, he used the old anointing to open up the red sea, when the wall of Jericho blocked the way of Joshua, in Joshua 6 v 20 Joshua and the children of Israel, gave one shout and the wall of Jericho came tumbling down.
The obstacles might be different, but the anointing both the new and the old can clear any obstacles. Which is why I am happy for you, that whatever obstacles that may be in your way, by the virtue of the anointing, the obstacles will vanish tonight in Jesus name.
Anointing if we have all the time to explain is also like fire and fire burns whether old fire or new fire. In 2 King 1 v 9 – 12 when some people try to arrest Elijah, Elijah used the old anointing to roast them; he used the old anointing to reduce those who would have arrested him to ashes. In 2 kings 2 v 23 – 24 when some people began to mock Elisha, he used the new anointing to silence them permanently.
By the basis on the unction of the Holy spirit, I am also saying the anointing of God will see to it tonight, that those who have tried one way or the other to say where is you, God will silence them permanently. Now both anointing, old as well as new can raise the dead,
in 2 king 17 v 17 when the Son of the widow of Zarephath died, Elijah used the old anointing to bring that child back to life.2King 4 V 28 when the son of the Shulamite woman died, Elisha used the old anointing to bring that child back to life.
So the anointing whether old or new has resurrection power, which is why I am saying everything that is good in your life that the enemy had killed, shall resurrect tonight Jesus name. Old naoin3int, where
The Lord said there is a student her tonight, he said both himself and you working together, will soon surprise your professor.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, urinating blood, he said the urinating has stopped.
The new anointing has the power to multiply. In 1 King 17 v 8 – 16 when Elijah came to the widow of Zarephath, she had only one meal left but the anointing in the life of Elijah, kept multiplying that food that the woman never lack until the famine is over.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said your voice have been fading steadily, he ask me to tell you, at the next shout of halleluiah! Your voice will be fully restored.
In 2king 4 v 1 – 7 when the widow of the son of the prophet ran to Elisha, and said am in trouble am in debt, the creditors have come to collect my children, Elijah said what do you have in the house?, she said “empty vessels” he said “go and borrow empty vessels, make sure they are very many, and begin to pour the oil and as she began to pour the oil, the oil kept on multiplying.
And am prophesying to the life of some one here tonight, in the name that is above every other name, from now on you will begin to multiply. Your miracles will begin to multiply.
It reminds me of the story of a brother, who came to us several years ago. Very, very wretched! When I finished praying for him, the spirit of God said I should give him some money, because the situation of the fellow was, am not sure he has enough money to travel back. I gave him a little money then because I had very little too. But I heard myself saying this money will never finish.
Each time I see him today, I remember that day, I remember the poor man of the day, I see how far God has brought him now.
The other day, I was driving through the camp and I was asking somebody, “Whose house is that?” “They say it belong to so and so” and I remember the money that never ends.
There is somebody here tonight, it doesn’t matter how much is in your pocket, in the name that is above every other name that money will never finish.
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said I will surely promote you, but don’t forget that I am the one doing it.
Now what is the difference between the new anointing and the old? It is simply that the new is superior to the old. Far, far superior; number one it starts where the old ends. Wherever the old ends, the new begins, like in 2 kings 2 v 9-12 it is only when Elijah left that Elisha began. In Joshua 1 v 1-2 God himself said to Joshua, he said Moses my servant is dead, now you arise.
The new anointing begins were the old ends and I have good news for somebody here tonight, no matter how great you are right now, tonight is the beginning of your new greatness.
I want to prophesy to you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, you will never go lower than you are tonight, you will never be poorer than you are tonight. From now on, it will be an upward swing in Jesus name.
The new begins where the old ends, not only that, the new anointing can do much more than the old. For example like I told my children yesterday, the new succeeds where the old has failed. In Joshua 1 v 3- 9 God said to Joshua, the assignment that Moses could not complete, you will complete. Moses brought the people out of Egypt but he couldn’t take them to the promise Land. Joshua, you will succeed where Moses has failed.
Let me prophesy to somebody straightaway, because of the new anointing you will get tonight, you will never fail again.
And like I told my children yesterday, and I am telling the rest of you who came today, who were not here yesterday, whether the devil likes it or not, you will be greater than your parent, where your parents failed, you will succeed in Jesus name.
Now When you look at 2 Kings 13 v 20 -21 just to use it as an example, because if you study Elijah, and I studied Elijah very well. I spent three solid years studying Elijah, because I like him. He was a powerful man, he was a holy man, he was a bold man, he was a man who stood in the presence of the living God, he was a man who was absolutely obedient to God, and he was a terror to the devil. So I love Elijah and I studied him very well. Recorded for us in the bible are seven major miracles that Elijah performed.
And I moved over to Elisha and I found that I love Elisha more, in fact all these years, am still studying Elijah, am still learning more from him. And I discovered that Elijah performed 14 miracles, Elijah raised one fellow from died; Elisha performed 13 miracles before he died and to make sure that what he did double that of his father, after he died, his bone raised the dead. I like Elisha!
And I am saying to somebody here today, because of the anointing you are going to receive today, your business will not die with you, your victory will outlive you.
Then you hear something from Jesus himself in John 14 v12 Jesus Christ said the works that I did, you shall do also, but he didn’t stopped there, he said and greater work shall ye do. Because you are going to be operating in the new anointing, he said you will do even greater work than I did. when I study the bible I discovered this is true in Mark 5 v 25 -34 the woman with the issue of blood touched the helm of the garment of Jesus and was made whole, but when you get to Act 5 v 14 -16
The Lord says there is someone here tonight; he said before the end of this month, your number one adversary will begin to sweat.
By the time you get to Act 5 v 14 -16 the bible tells us that the shadow of Peter began to heal the sick; in the case of Jesus it was the helm of his garment, but Peter went a step higher and his shadow began to heal the sick.
Let me tell my children one more time, in the name that is above every other name, you will all be greater than I. Whatever God has used me to do; He will use you to do greater works in Jesus name.
There is something about the new anointing, and that is the power to decree, the power to say something and it happens immediately. When mummy was leading us in Prayer for Nigeria, she mentioned 2 king 2 v 19- 22 there you will find Elisha pouring salt at the source of the spring at the city of Jericho and said “this water is healed from now on, there will be no more death, no more bareness from now on” and the bible says the water was healed according to the saying of Elisha as he said it.
The ability to decree and to have it happened immediately, it is very, very potent in the new anointing. Which is why I am going to share a testimony with you, before I do something that I believe the Holy Spirit want me to do tonight.
I have just returned from America, when we were there, we had an Holy Ghost rally and then it was testimonies time. One of my daughters got up to testify, she said” several years ago, I was seeking admission to the university. I came to you daddy, and I said “pray for me”, and you said “what do I want?” I said “I want admission into the university”, because you were busy; you said “that is alright, you will get the admission, go”. She said she was disappointed, she thought i was going to pray. But since i didn’t do any other things she left. Two weeks later she got her admission.
She said then some years later, she wanted to go for post graduate, so she came back. “Daddy I want to do post graduate in such and such a university and admission there is very, very tough, I have applied and I need your prayers. She said I looked at her and said congratulations. Congratulations? Then she remembered the last time; first time I didn’t pray for her I just said you will get admission, this time I said congratulation.
So she went home rejoicing, she told her son when she got home, my daddy said congratulations! Some days later she got a letter from the university and the first thing they wrote there was DEAR MRS SO AND SO, CONGRATULTIONS.
I want to say to somebody here tonight, anywhere who needs breakthrough congratulations. Or maybe I should go a little further, is there anybody here who needs a decree? You need a decree concerning any situations in your life, then let me hear your amen loud and clear.
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, everything you want God will do for you.
Beginning from this moment, anything called failure will never be found in your dictionary again, beginning from today, all those who think you are finished, will come and bow down before you. In the name that is above every other names; I decree before the end of this month, your testimony will be complete, if you receive that, let me hear you shout halleluiah!
Put your hands together for the Almighty God because it is done!
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, he said there is a miracle I have been keeping for you for a very long time, but you can receive it now.
Let me round up because I want us to pray tonight, we need this new anointing. Something specific about the new anointing, that I want to drive home tonight, because I have a feeling deep within me that the reason God said that the theme for November Holy Ghost service is WEEP NOT, is because God want to do something big.
And there is something the new anointing does and that is it lifts a siege. In 2king 7 v 1 -11 when Samaria was strictly besieged, so badly that women began to eat their children , Elisha spoke, he made a decree, he didn’t even preach, he didn’t pray he just said within 24 hours, they will be more than sufficient food for everybody, it was difficult to believe, but within 24 hours, the siege was lifted.
Many at times some of us don’t know what a siege is and I will try to give one or two example so you understand, at times when somebody is almost succeeding and he keeps on failing it might be because the fellow is under a siege. Maybe there are forces working against the fellow and the fellow can’t see but they are there, let me give you a classical example.
We know many at times, we go though fuel shortage in our country and there is fuel in a particular station, so you are on a long queue, they were selling to everybody before you and they were going and it comes to your turn and they say the fuel is finished that is terrible isn’t it?
But there is a worse situation; the fuel is not finished, it is your turn, the attendant says I am not selling anymore, I am tired, I am going home. You begged him, you said you will pay double, he said I am not selling. When you have a situation like that and I am giving that as an example, then it means there is a siege somewhere.
In Mark 5 v 25 -34 the Bible tells us that there was these woman, she started by menstruating normally, then the thing kept on pouring, kept pouring. She went from one physician to another, the bible says she spent all that she had, and instead of getting better, she grew worse.
There was a siege; a siege on her health, a siege on her money, there was a siege on her joy until the anointing destroy the yoke. In the name of the one who sent me, every one of you under why siege what over, that siege will be lifted today in Jesus name.
One of the preacher who spoke before me said something, he said God is not going to release new anointing on a sinner, he is absolutely correct, because nobody anoints a body that is not washed. If you want to anoint yourself, you want to put ointment on your body, you need to first wash, it is after you have washed that you apply the anointing.
He said it is true if you want the anointing of the Almighty God, his blood must first of all wash you of your sin, those have not born again, and who have not surrender their lives to Jesus Christ and they want anointing, they are not likely to get it.
Somebody who says he is a Christian, who is already backsliding, and you are already doing those things you said you will never do again; you are lying again, you are committing adultery again, and you said you want the new anointing, God says you cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound. Even when somebody is already anointed and he comes into sin, the anointing will vanished.
So those of you who are here tonight and you know you must have this anointing. Because you need it to face the new battles that may be ahead, come and give your life to Jesus, let his blood wash you clean. Those of you, who are backsliders, come back to Jesus Christ, let him restore you, the new anointing is not something you can say “I will wait for”, and you need it now straight away.
Come now and then I will pray for your salvation and the door will be open to you to receive the new anointing, and the same is true for all backsliders. Come now….
And as you come, begin to pray to Jesus Christ, I don’t want to leave in sin anymore, I want to serve you oh Lord, I need the new anointing, I want your blood to wash me clean. Ask him to have mercy on you and save your soul, and the rest of us let us stretch our hand to this people, that God will save their souls …
In Jesus Mighty name we have prayed, savior I want to bless your holy name, I want to thank you for your word, thank you for this great moment of new anointing, accept our thanks in Jesus name. Father you promised, that whosoever come to you, you will in no wise cast out, these people have come now, please receive them in Jesus name, save their souls tonight in Jesus name, let your blood wash away their sins in Jesus name, write their names in the book of life in Jesus name.
Any backsliders among them; restore fully in Jesus name. Father when you begin to release the new anointing, give them their own portion in Jesus name, thank you father, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
