The God of Impossibilities (The 11th Hour Miracle)
Genesis 21:15-17, Exodus 14:10-14, 2 Kings 7:1-7, Luke 5:4-7, John 11:32-44, 2 Kings 19:14-19 & 32-36
The 11th hour is injury time, the last minute battle before your miracle is established, the time powers and principalities try to frustrate you the most, “for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12); it is the time when limitations are bound but despite the situation, this period of time is also for the manifestation of God (John 9:3), to take you out of the hands of the captives and set you free (Isaiah 49:25-26). For He has promised to contend with those who contend with us (Isaiah 49:25) and He shall fight our battle while we hold our peace (Exodus 14:14).
Just like in soccer injury time, the powers of darkness will try you from one side and when you are able to withstand, they go into another direction. Just be patient and endure (Matthew 24:13, Luke 21:19, James 1:4, 2 Timothy 2:12) for in due season, when your appointed time has reached, darkness shall depart for your manifestation (Job 14:14). No matter the situation in life, never let the powers of darkness mesmerize you or make you feel less of the promises of God in the Word (Bible). Always make sure you study the Word of God to show yourself proven unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, practicing and teaching the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). Do not let the Word depart from your mouth, but meditate on it every time in order to observe and do all that God commands; then your way shall be prosperous with good success (Joshua 1:8).
Assuming, maybe you have worked so hard from beginning to almost the end of the year and nothing to show your effort or labor; people are celebrating God in thanksgiving and you do not know what to thank God for because you have nothing. Injury time is a time of no hope, but remember the bible makes it clear we must give thanks: for it is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning us (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Your first appreciation to God should be for life, protection and provision. You cannot give up because a second is too much for God’s miracle. I know a man who the Lord used me to prophecy into his life for a miracle car in 3 days, he said amen but yet had no money for such a miracle; because it was his appointed time, the Lord made it happen within 3 days. He is the God of impossibility. The Lord shows up when people say you are dead or nothing is there to hope on.
I know a man that died in Niger State, Nigeria; his grave was dug, he was to be taken the next day in a coffin to his village. To men he was dead but to God he is still alive. This man had died in the eyes of men, only for the Lord to be glorified, just as the blindman in John 9:2-3. In my hotel room, he was brought by some people. When I saw him, I told the people to take him to another room, where the other Pastors were and I will meet them there; I did not know what to do. However, the God of 11th hour miracle knows what to do. I knew that once I prayed for him, whether he wakes or not, the fact is I have prayed. It is left for God to do what He wants.
As I was seated, God said arise. I carried the bottle of olive oil and went. When I got to the man, people were gathered around him crying and I told the people to fix his legs on the floor. As soon as his legs touched the ground, he stood and people ran away. He stood without moving, I called him by name and asked him to turn around, he did, I asked him to begin to walk, he began to walk. I asked him what he wanted to eat and he said rice. That was how he became alive again.
In the 11th hour, God is able to do the impossible. At this same time, we began to praise God. I left the room and the wife entered with the man’s son. The son was carried and could neither walk nor eat proper food. As soon as the son entered the room, he walked to the father and joined him to eat with his hands i.e. double miracle, at the time of hopelessness, the 11th hour, our God is able to do wonders.
The God of impossibility can make life possible. It might look like all hope is lost, nothing good happening and men have written you off. The God of second chance is still able (Genesis 32:10-14). It is possible that God can visit your neighbor before you but do not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart (Galatians 6:9). We must wait for our appointed time (Job 14:14). A time ago, I was frustrated, I needed money and a lot of things, I was praying and fasting. Suddenly, someone called me that his father had died. The wife of the man also called. I knew the man was not dead, although, they thought it was so. I instructed the woman on what to do while I prayed; and God woke the man. In my predicament, despite all I was fasting and praying for, God used me to wake up the man. My own personal requests were disregarded for another miracle to take place. I ended my fasting because it’s not like He was not able to answer me. The bible in Matthew 7:8, makes it clear that he that asks, receives and in accordance with the Word in Philippians 4:6-7 we must “be anxious (worried) for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Nobody is able to help you at this time except God. I praying and fasting and God left my requests and used me to raise a dead man. The Lord chooses who to be gracious to and who to have compassion on (Exodus 33:19); but today the Lord of impossibility can change your story. I have seen a boy who was diagnosed SS become AA. God knows how to do miracle. He does not manifest in the possibility of men but manifests in the impossible. Another woman in the United States was married for about 30 years, no child. When I came across her, I asked God what to do and He showed me the prayers I need to take her through. During the prayer, God told me she would give birth to a child, whose name would be “Emmanuel.” In a short while, she conceived and bore a son. However, there is a prayer we must prayer.
Quick Prayer: Father, in Jesus name, thank You for Your Grace that is sufficient unto us, with your mercy tend to our prayers; Father, by the power in the blood of Jesus, I reverse whatever I said, or whatever that has been said concerning me contrary to YourWill. That it may be well with my soul, thank you Lord in Jesus name, Amen.
Despite, the fact that the woman bore a son, she started having so many problems, she was losing her money. She came back to me, as I was praying, God told me to ask her what she said before she bore her son. When I confronted her, she admitted to telling God that if it is money, she should take but let her have a child. God did not take the money but her words stood against her and the devil took the money knowing that God will do it for her. What have you said? Confession brings possession (Mark 11:13-14 & 20). When God promises you a thing, do not worry for the one that promised is able to fulfil his promise (Colossians 1:16). You cannot not bribe God (Acts 8:18-21).
In the time of impossibility, we can make stupid comments, disregarding the power of the tongue. The bible speaking in Matthew 5:37, “But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.” In Proverbs 18:12, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” We are a product of what we proclaim. I know a woman who was bitter and battered. Every man she meets leaves her; the two children were also about to be incarcerated. When she spoke to me, I prayed a deep hearted prayer for her and the Word came upon her to leave in her caravan to California, that God was sending a helper. She obeyed, left to California, evidence came and her both children acquitted, there in California, God sent her a helper that gave her all she needed. For God is not man to lie (Number 23:19).
The 11th hour miracle is not by your effort because you have done all you can in the natural. If you must excel and accelerate, you need the supernatural and glory power of God. It may look like nothing is happening but God does many things beyond that which we cannot see. The God of impossibilities has a way to make things right. For eyes have not seen, the ears have not heard, neither conceived in the hearts of men what God has for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9). It does not matter if men have written you off. Be consistent in the things of God, be faithful with your tithe, offering, first fruit and all your covenants with God and do not weary, be faithful to your Maker. I remember one of my daughters God has been blessing; before she saw her manifestation, she made so many sacrifices, even after she left the country, she was always engaging in the Ministry’s activities. Serve God as commanded and not convenient. This my daughter one time called that she was not able to pay her fees, I told her the fees was already taken care of by God. She believed and reported herself to school as she was not able to pay. The school asked her to return and when she did, she found out her bills were taken care of by the school and someone also gave her extra money.
In the time of impossibility, God can make it possible. The 11th hour is the time it looks as if your life has no meaning, that time it looks as if you have been forgotten, the time you have done all you could to stand and you are still seated, the time it looks as if your prayer is not working.
It is one thing to be blessed by God and another thing to sustain the blessing. At the time of my 11th hour, God blessed me with an architectural job worth 50 million, many years ago, I gave someone else to supersede, and the person messed it all up. Always ask for divine direction, it is far better for God to lead you than man.
When the devil works against you and all hope is lost, at this time, God can lift you up. I tried many things and all looked like a failure, despite all the people around me that were highly placed in government. Later on, I found out that my sister and mother went and knelt before the altar of God and said whatever that will not make me to serve God should pass by me and that He should bend my knees. In the process of bending my knees, I was almost committing suicide. I do things for people and nothing goes wrong but nothing was working for me, until I met Jesus. No matter your ministration, surrendered to God and everything will work out for your good (Romans 8:28).
If God can find you today, your problems and predicament will be solved, your challenges will become a testimony. If God can allow you to see the necessities, He can allow you see the impossibilities. It does not matter what has been said concerning you. Surrender to Jesus with your whole heart and watch God do the impossible. Favor can find you in an unimaginable way for the Lord to be glorified. I know a woman that her husband was preparing to send her packing because she could not get pregnant. At this time, another lady was pregnant for the man. He bought a car for the wife to use it as her sendoff gift. When she met me, I told her the car was part of her blessings and that she would be pregnant. Before the day of her sendoff, the husband came home drunk and slept with her. She got pregnant and when she told me, I told her that if I be a man of God, the other lady’s pregnancy will go and hers will stay. When she told her husband that she was pregnant, the husband took the message to the lady carrying his child, but getting there; he found out that the lady was rushed to emergency. He got to the hospital and found out the lady had a miscarriage.
It does not matter who leaves you because everything works out for good for them that love Him (Romans 8:28). People might have insulted you but a day comes that they will swallow their words.
In any way you have found yourself unworthy, should in case you asked and disbelieved, or you have lived an unrighteous life. Pray now, ask God to forgive you and revisit you. Sincerely tell Him how sorry and unworthy you have been, tell Him you will never doubt Him. Ask because He that asks, receives (Matthew 7:8). Rededicate yourself, spirit, soul and body to Him. Thank Him for forgiving you.
Now Pray the following prayers:
- Pray for the glory of God to come upon you, that you may receive the answers to your prayers in accordance to the will of God (Job 14:14). Pray that every answer to your prayer, in accordance to the will of God, shall come and overtake you.
- Pray against every ungodly rope, chain, whatsoever that is holding you from showing forth, to be loosened.
- In Deuteronomy 15:6, the bible makes it clear that we shall not be beggars, for when the Lord blesses us as promised, you shall lend to nations. Now begin to pray that you shall not be a beggar and you cease to be a beggar.
- In Matthew 15: 13, the plant which is not of the Lord shall be uprooted. Pray against every ungodly statements or prophecies, or spoken words “of never do well” whether the one that made it is dead or alive, the prophecy shall no longer exist. Now pray and uproot those words said against you, cease their existence.
- Pray for restoration. Begin to retrieve and recover your life, destiny, dignity and blessings.
- Pray that whatsoever that is yours in the hands of the enemy and whatever is used to work against you, objects representing you in covens and altars of wickedness, ungodly artifacts working against you, whatever is spell bounding you or used to manipulate you; destroy those things by the Fire of the Holy Ghost and retrieve your success.
- In Revelation 12:11, we overcame by the blood of the Lamb (Christ). Pray against whatever you have been given or called in the spiritual that is manifesting in the physical. Those negative names you were called in covens and ungodly altars, objects representing you for evil, begin to wipe them with the blood of Jesus for a change of story. Retrieve your name and true self.
- In John 10:10, the thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. In Proverbs 6:31, a thief is to restore that which he stole in sevenfold. Pray against every spiritual thief that comes to steal or has stolen from you, those that steal your virtue, promotion, success, glory, jobs, partner. Begin to arrest the thieves by the blood of Jesus, demand restoration (take back all your properties, partner’s glory and all that has been taken away from you) and destroy them.
- Jesus was given a crown of thorn, the crown of slavery and reproach that you may not have them. Pray against every crown of reproach, suffering and setbacks that may have been given to you spiritually and remove those crowns.
- Pray against every incision or spiritual madness or sensor used to access you, to work against you. Wipe them by the blood of the Lamb (Revelation 12:11).
- Cover all of you with the blood of Jesus, from the crown of your head to the soul of your feet, your family, properties, destiny, star, glory; all that the Lord has bestowed upon you.
- Give Him thanks for your deliverance for it is His will (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
The bible speaking in Genesis 21:15-17, “And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept. And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.”
To Hagar, the boy was to die because there was no water, there was no hope, nobody to go to and nowhere to go to or anyone to call out to; but to God the boy is with dreams and revelation. At the 11th hour when she expected the boy to die, she heard the call. When you think God is no longer there, He may yet reach you with a call. Be ready to answer. Your God ordained plan and purpose can never be aborted, for before you were born, the Lord already knew you (Jeremiah 1:5). There is a volume of book written concerning you (Psalm 40:7); and your expectation shall not be cut off (Proverbs 23:18).
Some of you thought that God has forgotten you, do not be afraid, God has heard your cries. You are written in his palm and continually before Him (Isaiah 49:16). The Lord is not slow to His promises, as some men count slowness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).
I prophecy unto you, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whatever happened to you was a takeoff point, for the Lord has heard your cry. Jesus will never allow you go empty. The God of impossibility provided Hagar with food and water. The omnipotent and omniscience, the one that sees the end from the beginning, the impeccable, everlasting redeemer, the great baptizer and sanctifier will give you water and food, will provide restoration and deliverance in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen!
Exodus 14:10-14, “And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord. And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt? Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness. And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”
Just like the people complained, so many of us have complained, but from today seize from complaining for everything will work out for your good, stay faithful to Him. We must not murmur as if God is no longer the creator of the universe (John 1:3). In Philippians 2:14, we are admonished to do everything without murmuring or questioning the providence of God.
The children of Israel were at their 11th hour, facing a death situation and all they could do was speak on hopelessness. All we have to do is to stand where we are: for if God be for you who can stand against you? (Romans 8:31).
The Egyptians you saw, the troubles, difficulties, all the ups and downs you saw, shall never be seen in your life again in the name of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen!
