– Pastor E. A. Adeboye at RCCG Sunday Service. Going Higher (Part 20)
1 Kings 18:7-8
After the battery had been charged for three and a half years, now the battery is ready for action. The Man who started off as completely unknown, the one that when they introduced him in 1 Kings 17:1, the Bible said Elijah the Tishbite of the inhabitants of Gilead, the Bible did not even mention his father’s name. He is now the one who said go and tell the King ‘I am here’
I decree in the Name that is above every other name, after today you will send a message to all your enemies round about and say I am here. God can make something out of nothing. Hebrews 11:3. 1 Samuel 2:8, God can pick the poor from the dust, pick a beggar from the dunghill and turn him into someone who can begin to dine with Kings, why? Promotion comes from Him, Psalm 75:5-7
I have good news for those of you who right now may be considered as nothing, after today in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ you will one day soon be able to say I am here and the world will pay attention. 1 Samuel 16:1-5, the Bible said when Samuel arrived in the City of Jesse, the elders heard and they trembled. This was the boy in 1 Samuel 3:1-10 who didn’t know the voice of God, but in the hand of the Almighty God, that little boy had become a city shaker.
1 Samuel 17:22-32, when Goliath was terrorising Israel for forty days, David said, I am here, let nobody be afraid anymore, David has come, who was David? 1 Samuel 16:11-13, the boy who was ignored, the one they will not even present for the possibility of a king, but when he arrived at the battle front, everybody was shaking and David said let nobody be afraid, I will destroy the destroyer.
Acts 5:1-16, the Bible tells us that whenever Peter will come to a town, the people will ask if he is coming in the morning or in the evening, why ? Because they want to know where the sun will be when he arrives so that they will know where his shadow will be then they will send a message to all the country to bring the sick because Peter is here, so that they can lay them down and the shadow of Peter will fall upon them and everyone that the shadow touched got healed. Who was Peter? This was the man who failed as a fisherman, Luke 5:1-11. He failed as a fisherman but now they can announce that Peter is here.
I pray in the name of the one who sent me to you, one day is coming, when you go to any city, the whole city will be trembling in joy knowing that before you leave there will be no sick person left. Acts 8:5-8, Philip entered into Samaria and the Bible said there was great joy in the city because Philip is here, demons began to fly out, miracle and tremendous things began to happen. Why ? Who was Philip? Acts 6:1-5, Philip was a table server, someone who waits for the other people who distributes food but when God picks nothing, He can turn that nothing to something.
As my God lives, you will not die unknown. Acts 19:11-17, the Bible says, God performs special miracles by the hands of Paul, so much so that they were taking his handkerchiefs and aprons to the sick and they were healed, demons saw his handkerchiefs and they fled, so much so that when some people tried to copy him and they told a mad man, demon get out! The demon said, Jesus I know, Paul I know, very soon the devil will say we know you.
I pray for you my beloveth children, very soon anybody who touches you will receive a miracle. Paul whose handkerchiefs began to cast out demons said in 1 Timothy 1:15, I was a chief of sinners. If he was the chief of sinners, it means that the worst person amongst us will be around his level and God picked him up and turned him into something that when he says Paul is here, the people will know that miracle has arrived. You too can say I am here, why? 1 Peter 2:9-10, says you are a chosen generation, you didn’t choose your self, God chose you. John 15:16
It is not everyone who heard the Gospel the day you heard the Gospel that surrendered their lives, many people have heard the Gospel before you and many will hear after you, thank God you were chosen for salvation. You are chosen to be royalty, Revelation 1:5-6 said Jesus has made us Kings. We are royalty by divine decree. You are a priest, Jesus Christ has made us Kings and priests. You are a priest of the Most High, so you can say ‘I am here’. You are even a Holy Nation, 1 John 1:7 says the Blood of Jesus cleanses you from all your sins. It went further to say you are a peculiar person. What makes you peculiar? Do you know how Big God is?
1 John 4:4 say, that big God is dwelling in you. Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. They use to say great wonders come in small packages you are loaded, the Almighty God is dwelling in you. Ask the elders, they will tell you that, the herbalist will swallow the Ifa Oracle so that when he is boasting, he is boasting of the thing he has swallowed.
You are peculiar, you can tell the world I am here, the Bible says you are a people, 1 Peter 2:9-10.
Matthew 15:21-28, the Bible tells us that there are Children of God and there are dogs. Before you gave your life to God you were regarded as a dog but when you gave your life to Jesus Christ, the Bible says to as many as received Him, to them gave Him power to become the sons of God. You are a child of the Most High but the biggest reason you can say ‘I am here’ is that you have obtained mercy. Ephesians 2:1-9
That mercy that brought you salvation is the same mercy that has kept you up to this moment, it is because you know you have obtained mercy that you can stand before any enemy and say I am here.
James 4:7 says submit yourself to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you. If you can resist the devil who is a witch or a wizard? If you can deal with their master himself then you can deal with every devil. I pray for you, you will never be afraid of the enemy, you will challenge them and say I am here!
The enemy will use you and abandon you ask Goliath and Judas Iscariot but if you come to Jesus Christ, He will chase the devil out of you and fill you with the Holy Spirit and you too will begin to say in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, I am here. Anyone who will want to come to Jesus Christ today, come so that he can fill you with His power.
Say, Lord save my soul so that I too can tell the devil greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world, I am here. As you are crying to Him for salvation, I am calling on all those who have already been saved to intercede on behalf of these new converts so that they too will be able to stand strong before the enemy. From now on, demonstrate the fact that you are a peculiar person, chase the devil out of your churches, families and surroundings, let them know you are here and the Almighty God will give you mighty testimonies in Jesus name.
