Ministering: Dr. Daniel Olukoya (G.O. MFM Worldwide)

Luke 24:49 (KJV): “And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.”

The Bible says, “He is that is above is above all”. There is a power from on high, different from the power from below, different from the waters, and different from the magicians. It is the power from on high, and because it is the power from on high, every other power must bow, because, as a matter of rule in the school of power, when a lesser power confronts a greater power, the lesser power must bow. This is what differentiates Christianity from other religions.

We are promised power from on high, so other powers are supposed to bow to us. It is a tragedy of our current Christianity that we have not correctly assessed the power from on high. If you read the Bible very well, most of the miracles that took place in the New Testament also took place in the Old Testament. People were healed in the Old Testament and in the New Testament. The dead came to life in the Old and New Testaments. Leprosy was cleansed in the Old and New Testaments.

But in the Old Testament, the demonstration of this power was only kept for the prophets, not everybody. But now we are given a key to connect to power from on high. That is why Jesus told those people, “Have you not read in your law that I say, “Ye are gods’?” That is what He was trying to explain, but they did not understand.

When the Bible says, “King of kings and Lord of lords, who are these other kings? Who are these other lords? They are you and me. He is King; we are the other kings. He is Lord; we are the other lords.

There is a problem. We are not really connecting to that pentecostal power that differentiates us from other religions. It is our inability to demonstrate this power that is making everyone suffer now. It is the scarcity of the power of God amongst us that is causing what is happening now. If each and every one of us demonstrates the power of God, even if we run 100 services here, there will not be enough space. But unfortunately, only a few people demonstrate some level of power.

Many pastors even have no clue how to demonstrate the power of God, and it is unfortunate that the reason we are having strange and funny pastors is because church members have refused to demonstrate the power of God. They are not connecting to it.

Some have become slaves to pastors. If the pastor asks them to bring money, they do. If he asks them to steal, they do. If he asks them to take off their clothes, they take off their clothes. This is because they have failed to connect to that power so that they would be able to say “No, this is wrong”.

Would to God that there will be somebody listening to me here tonight who will say “I am tired of my powerless living; I want to demonstrate the power of God”.

Unfortunately for many of us, until a level of power comes upon you, you cannot rise from where you are to where God wants you to be. Many of us are already born into deficits. When somebody is born into a deficit and wants to come out, a level of power is needed to remove him from the dunghill and set him among the princes of the earth.

A level of power is needed to deliver you who are gold incarcerated in the dustbin. There are at least 1,000 women listening to me now. They are human goldmines. The way God made them, they are goldmines. If they sell mud, the mud will move. Anything they lay their hands upon, moves.

But then, when the person is a goldmine captured inside a dung hill in the dustbin, in a cage there, everything that the person can perform is finished there. A particular power is needed to break through. This is where the power of Pentecost comes in.

Listen and listen to me very carefully. The Bible did not leave any of us in any doubt. Any suffering we are suffering as a result of powerlessness is our fault. You are still at the level where spirit husband is pressing you down; it is your fault.

You are still at that level where somebody will bring out a fetish power in front of you and you are afraid, instead of you to decree that the fetish power they are using should catch fire on them. We should connect to that power, and that is a serious matter.

Some people wrote an official letter to me from a shrine. They said, “Dear Dr. Olukoya, there is a woman in your church who lives opposite our shrine. Without any provocation, she came to pour one oil on the shrine, and since then, the idols have been silenced. So, we are appealing to you to go and caution your church member.” I read the letter, and several thoughts crossed my mind, like, “Why did they not go to her directly? She lived opposite them, afterall.

But they were afraid, because if she could go to anoint the shrine and the gods had been silenced, they could not predict what would happen to them if they confronted her themselves. Because the person who could silence their gods could silence them too. And then, to worsen the whole situation, I did not even know the woman.

🔥 May you connect to Pentecostal power! in the name of Jesus.

Somebody has said, “The sign of Christianity is not the cross. The sign of Christianity is tongues of fire”. If you say the sign of Christianity is the cross, Jesus left that cross a long time ago. So it is the tongues of fire.


I must have shared this, but let me share it again because I am never tired of sharing it. It was at Iddo market that a man entered a bus, and the bus was going to Ikorodu. On the way, the conductor insulted the man, and the man said, “Is it me you are talking to like that? When we get to Ikorodu, you shall see”.

And when they got there, the man quietly put his hand into his agbada, brought out a horn, and started incantations. He issued incantations and then told the conductor to remove his trousers. He removed his trousers. That is why if you say there are no powers of darkness, you are joking. He started again and asked the conductor to remove his shirt, which he did. Then he told the conductor to remove his singlet. He then went on to say that the conductor should remove his pants.

Meanwhile, Lagos people as usual, had gathered to watch. Some were crying and pitying the conductor. But as the man was going to ask the boy to remove his pants, a believer in the bus intervened and said to him, “Daddy, please, even when we offend God, He forgives us. You are old enough to give birth to this boy. Please forgive him and let him go”. The man got angry and turned to the believer and said “Who are you?”. He put his hand back into his pocket, brought out the horn, and started incantations.

Then he turned to the believer and said, “Remove your coat.” The believer smiled and said “In Jesus name, I will not remove my coat”. When he heard “in Jesus name”, he said “Ah, you troublemakers are here again”.

Then the believer turned to the conductor and said “In the name of Jesus, I command you: wear your trousers”. The conductor did. He said the same for his singlet and shirt, and the conductor wore his clothes again.

The people there were glued because, in their presence, they saw two powers in display. One power was making a man mad, and one power was reversing it right there. While they were busy gazing at them, the believer began to preach the gospel.

Everybody there, including the man with the charm, surrendered their lives to Jesus. The ending story of that man who was turning somebody mad is that he is now a pastor. That is because somebody connected to the pentecostal power.

🔥 May you connect to that power! in the name of Jesus.

Acts 1:8 (KJV): “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

Here, Jesus was talking. The infilling of the Holy Ghost is the source of power.

Acts 2:17–18 (KJV): “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:”

Here, everybody is covered: male, female, servant, daughter, son, everyone. More than at any other time, we need to connect to that pentecostal power.

There is a power:
– that cannot be despised.
– that cannot be insulted.
– that cannot be molested.
– before which all powers bow.
– that cannot be reproached.
– that no power of darkness can confront.
– that will make a man or woman unstoppable.
– that makes way when there is no way.
– that transcends all other powers.
– that conquers all oppositions.
– for the zero hour.
– To prevail.
– That makes evil arrows to backfire.
– That brings solutions to complicated problems.
– That calms troubled situations.
– that makes difficult things easy.
– That makes progress inevitable.
– That introduces the God who doeth wonders.
– that breaks down stubborn barriers.
– That makes your enemies work in your favour.
– That showcases and celebrates you even without any effort on your part.
– That can divide your Red Sea effortlessly.
– That will make it impossible for the lions of the land to devour you.
– That disgraces idol worshippers.
– That silences demons.
– That pursues stubborn enemies into the Red Sea.
– That converts dry bones into a great living army.
– That makes the glory of God to be revealed.

You need to connect to that power. You need to:
1. Become a friend of Jesus.
2. Repent of every known sin.
3. Hunger and thirst after that power.
4. Cry out to connect to that power.

Once you connect to that power, your life no longer remains the same, and the enemy will show you respect.
