King of glory tonight, in a spectacular manner bless Your children, bless the Youth, bless the Adults, bless our families, bless Your church, bless our nation.

Please Lord God Almighty let us leave here in the morning shouting glory to God.

In Jesus’ mighty name we have prayed.

Amen!

Let someone shout halleluyah.

Shake hands with one or two people, prophesy to them and say, the glory of God will cover you.

And then you may please be seated.

Alright!

The only reason I have something to add to what they have said is because, the elders have a saying.

If a child has clothes like an elder, he won’t have rags like an elder.

So, we have seen their cloth, now, let see elders have something else to add.

Proverbs chapter 3 verse 35.

The wise shall inherit glory, but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

One of my children who spoke before me gave a definition of glory according to the dictionary.

But the truth of the matter is that glory is one of the words that cannot be defined.

So, there are certain things in the word that you think you know but you don’t really have the words to describe them, to define them.

I will not be taking you into advance mathematics, but I will just explain briefly.

If I ask you what is time?

You are likely to answer me by saying that time is that which is measured in hours, minutes and seconds.

And then I can turn to you I say, I didn’t ask you, how is time measured?

What I am asking for is, time – what is time?

Suddenly you will realize that to think you know what time is but you really don’t know.

If you want to go deep you can say, time is a fragment of eternity.

And that will be correct.

And then, I ask you, what is eternity?

And you will tell me eternity is time without end.

So, what is time?

Time is fragment of time without end…

So, there are several things like that that you can’t define.

Another example is distance.

I don’t want to waste your time but you will discover that distance cannot be discovered.

Another of such is life. You will think you know it, but try and define it and you will run into some problems.

And when we find ourselves in such situations, in what we call higher philosophy, we solve the problem by defining those things by their opposite.

For example, you will say life is the opposite of death, because death is easy to define.

Death is permanent separation from people, places and things - that is death.

And it is different from when you go for holidays and temporarily separated from your bed; When you are dead, the separation is permanent.

The opposite of death is life.

Now, glory is one of such things that in order to define it, you have to look for the opposite.

Glory is the opposite of shame.

A shame is easy to define.

You know what shame is.

And I pray that shame will never come into your life.

And now Proverbs chapter 3 verse 35, shows us clearly that the wise shall inherit glory, but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

The opposite of wise is foolish, so, the opposite of glory is shame.

So, straightway, from the very beginning there is a link between glory and wise.

So, to carry divine glory implies you will enjoy divine wisdom that you would have the ability…just like one of my said - to unravel miseries.

To solve intricate problems, to be a carrier of divine glory means: to enjoy divine wisdom, you will have the ability to unravel miseries, and to solve intricate problems.

For example, in Mark chapter 12 verse 14 to 17, when they tried to track Jesus by saying should we pay tax?

They know if He says yes, they will say He is a supporter of the Roman Empire that is at that time tormenting the children of Israel.

He says no, they will say, He is anti-government.

He used divine wisdom, and said bring me a coin.

They brought Him a coin, and said whose inscription is this?

They said that of Caesar.

Haa! Okay!

Then give unto Caesar that which belong to Caesar and give to God what belong to God.

Divine wisdom - to come out of a tight corner.

Again you see another example in John chapter 8 verse 3 to 11. When they brought a woman caught in adultery to Jesus Christ and they said Moses said we should stone somebody like this to death.

What do you say?

Now, He has come to save the Lost.

They want Him to say, stone her to death and then they will be working against Him.

They want Him to say, don’t stone her to death, and they will say we told you, He is not of God; He is not supporting what God said.

He said no problem that was what Moses said; let us fulfill what Moses said.

If one of you who has not done anything wrong before; the one who has no sin, be the first to cast the stone.

That solved the problem.

I am praying for all of you who are here today, the ability to solve problems, receive it right now in Jesus’ Name.

Because carrier of divine glory which would mean you will enjoy divine wisdom, you would suddenly begin to enjoy unusual promotion.

For example, take Joseph in Genesis 41, you can see it from verse 33 to 37; this is a young man who had the ability to interpret dreams.

And then when they brought him before Pharaoh who had a dream that he couldn’t understand.

This boy by using that divine wisdom that is in him solved the problem and in a single day, this boy moved from being a prisoner to becoming the Prime Minister.

Divine wisdom leads to uncommon promotion.

Or you can consider the case of Daniel in Daniel chapter 2 verse 1 to 45.

You know what happened?

The king again had a dream, he even forgot the dream and so nobody could interpret it because they couldn’t get the dream from him, but they brought in Daniel who had divine wisdom, because the carrier of His glory enjoys divine wisdom.

Daniel interpreted the dream and as a result, he moved from being a slave to becoming the Governor General of the land in one day.

May I pray for someone here today, that, the kind of promotion that you cannot dream of even possible, will become yours before the end of the year.

And then, when you look at Mathew chapter 6 from verse 9 to 13, in the Lord’s Prayer, you will see how the Lord concluded the prayer.

Towards the end He said, ‘for Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.’

He puts together three things in the same group.

Again, in Mathematics when certain numbers has something in common, we put them together in what we called a set.

Like any number that can be divided by two we call it an even number.

So all the even numbers we put together in a set, and that means they have something in common.

Here, the Lord has put together in a set three things: kingdom, power and glory – they all have something in common.

Now, what is kingdom?

Kingdom means the kings domain.

What is power?

Of course, you know what power is. It is the ability to get things done.

And now, so, we see here, the Lord Jesus Christ is saying that glory is involved with dominion and is involved with power.

That is why the Bible says in Proverbs 17 verse 2, says the wise servant…; remember, glory and wisdom go together. The wise servant rules over the foolish son.

The wise would rule over the fools.

The Carrier of the glory of God, because they enjoy wisdom, will have dominion and they will rule over those who don’t have divine glory.

For example, in Daniel chapter 6, remember we have located Daniel has one of the carrier of His glory; … in Daniel chapter 6 from verse 1 to 3, the Bible tells us how Daniel rose from being a slave to becoming one of three Presidents in the land, and the king wanted to make him the ruler over all Presidents.

In 1Samuel 16 verse 4, the Bible tells us that when another fellow that we know to be a carrier of His glory, Samuel by name, when he came to town the elders trembled, they were afraid.

This man had no weapons, he had no guns, he had no sword, he had never fought, but he was carrier of divine glory.

When he came to town, because of the power and dominion associated with divine glory, the elders of the city trembled, until they knew why he came to town.

My father in the Lord in his life time was without any doubt the carrier of God’s glory.

You just look at his face, and you will know this is a carrier of divine glory.

In those days, in Ebute Metta, when Papa says to a worker or a Pastor, see me in my office, you will trembled until you find out (laughing) why he asked you to come.

Because those who carry His glory, they carry power.

I am praying for someone here today, just like one of my son said, by the time you return home, when people see the glory of God in your life, your enemies will scatter.

Samuel was carrier of His glory and so he enjoyed tremendous power.

Why would anybody tremble, when an ordinary prophet came to town?

Because they realize that he was the King maker, and the One who make can mar; they know that all he has to do is speak a word and the word that he speak shall not fall into the ground, so they are afraid.

They want to hear what he has to say first.

That is why I am saying to those of you who are my children, in the Name that is above every other name, it shall be well with you.

If you believe that will come to pass, your amen will be louder than that of your neighbour.

(Laughing) I borrowed that from my children. He said, if your amen is louder, your blessing will be bigger.

I am just trying to show you a little bit about glory, I won’t take time because my children have done a good work.

The glory of God is also associated with the radiance of God.

One of them also mentioned that one.

Glory is at best described as shining beauty – beauty that shines.

One of my children divine glory as beauty so nice or so beautiful, that is so overwhelmingly beautiful; is consider powerful or fearful, whichever way.

The globe even with the light off is still beautiful. Beautiful work of art - When the light comes on and it begins to shine, then it becomes shining beauty.

Glory is at times described as shining beauty.

With the ability to rebel, beauty shining so mightily, you don’t want to even look at it.

I mean you remember like my son mentioned, Exodus 34 verse 29, when Moses have been in the presence of God, after he made that request Lord show me Your glory.

Haa! God said what you ask for can kill you.

He said alright I know what I will do, I will hide you in the cleft of a rock, I will cover your face with My hand, so what is there left for you to see, and then I will let you see a little bit of My behind.

He said because if you see the full clear of My glory, you will die.

Glory is what knocks down Saul of tarsus from the road to Damascus.

He said he saw a light brighter than the noon day sun.

Something brighter than the noon day sun, you know that is really bright, and you don’t want to open your eye to look at the sun in the noon time.

And so, the glory of God is beauty so mighty that according to 1Kings chapter 8 verse 10 to 11, When the glory of God fill the house of God, even the Priest could not stand to minister, they ran out.

That kind of beauty that will chase away the demons, chase away those who want to lead you into sin, may the Almighty God give you tonight in Jesus’ name.

That is why carriers’ of His glory enjoy vigorous health and vitality.

Because that glory is so powerful, so radiance, sickness can’t stay, germs can’t stay, viruses can’t stay in the body of someone who is carrying His glory.

Deuteronomy 34 verse 7, tells us that at one hundred and twenty Moses was still as vigorous as ever, his eyes was bright as ever because he was carrier of God’s glory.

And I am praying for those of you who are here tonight, you will remain healthy till you see God in glory.

Thank You Father. The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said, those who are calling you stupid now will soon call you lenient.

Thank You Lord. The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said, everything that is wrong within you will be put right before the end of this month.

Hmmm! Maybe I should say amen to this one.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said, relax you will still here your own good news.

Well, I am about to get out of the way anyway.

The Lord want me to tell you a story, listen to it, it is a true story, because there is prophecy behind it; Have told you before, at least to the older ones.

When I was very very young- a child, I just started going to school. In those days when you are going to school in my village as a beginner, they get a piece of wood, just cut a little piece of wood and they painted it black with some leaves, and then they give you chalk – to go to school you will write with chalk on that thing which you carry. That thing which you carry is called slate.

I am sure the elders will remember.

And as a beginner, as you are writing, you are also scrubbing your face, everywhere; when you are coming home you are full of chalk. It is as if the writing had been on your face.

So one day I was coming home carrying my slate, chalk all over my face, and one old man saw me, looked at me and said, akowe agba.

Now akowe agba roughly means senior academician.

And of course we all laughed. I mean somebody just beginning to write A, B, C (A, B, D as we call it), but then by the grace of God you know how far I got in the University before God called me. I became akowe agba.

The Lord asked me to tell someone here today, He said, take my word, I will take you to the pinnacle of your career.

So, glory is associated with wisdom, glory is associated with dominion, glory is associated with power, glory is associated with radiance, glory is associated with vitality and good health.

Now, somebody, one of my children also mentioned the facts that glory is precious.

Or if I am to use his word, ‘glory is weighty’ – is heavy. It is worth suffering to get.

2Corithians chapter 4 verse17…

Haa! Thank You Father. I think it must be because it is a youth day that is why God is… because the Lord asks me to tell you another story.

When I turn full time, I left my job in the University to become a full time Pastor, there were several people who are mocking me, particularly in my village. They thought I have gone crazy.

And on particular man said to the hearing of my relatives, we knew something have gone wrong with him; the moment he began to shout amen, we know something is gone wrong.

I mean look at the only lecturer that we have in the village, now is become aladura. We don’t know where is gotten it from.

We know is Father, his father is a farmer, we know the mother, we don’t know how all of a sudden he said he is now aladura.

But today by the grace of God, I am regarded as best thing that has ever happen to my village.

The Lord ask me to tell someone here tonight, He said those who are mockery you now, will turn round and say, you are not only the best thing that has happen to our town, you are the best thing that has happen to our nation.

Glory is heavy, is weighty.

Paul talks about our sufferings; there is nothing to be compared to the weight of the glory that is to come.

So, when we talk about the carriers of His glory, you need to understand that is load – the glory is load, is heavy, it has weight. It is not something you treat lightly, it is something you carry: you have to carry it has carrying a load.

Now, the greater the glory you carry, the more jealously He guides you and protects you.

You are the carrier of His glory, He guides you and protect you; and the greater His glory you carry, the more jealously He guides you and protects you.

I mean take Numbers chapter 12 verse 1 to 15.

Because Moses was a carrier of His glory, his sister criticized him – and said are you the only one hearing from God, we too hear from God.

God said, you are talking to My servant, the carrier of My glory like that.

He said alright, become leprosy, just to show you… you know the Bible says touch not My anointed and do my prophets no harm.

Moses went to God and say please; she is my sister, Haa! Lord, have mercy; she was the one there when they put me in the river nigh, she is the one who came to call my mother, please Lord.
