”The God of Surprise” By Prophet Ernest E. O Untouchable


TEXT: LUKE 5:1-8

Surprise is an astonishing event, something that happened unexpectedly.
Our God is a God of surprise and he surprises both positively and negatively depending on how you relate with him.

But I bring you good news tonight, that my God is giving you a positive surprise in this program because he specially ordained it for you.

Whatever tough situation you find yourself, be rest assured that nothing is impossible for God to turn around for good, God shows up at the time you have exhausted all you can and know, just for his own glory. Matthew 19:27.

From our text, the fishermen have toiled all night, employed all the strategy and techniques they know yet they could not catch a fish.

They were frustrated, they gave up, abandoned their boats and were washing their nets to close for the day.

Then Jesus stepped in Simon’s boat as a platform to teach the crowd following him, after teaching, he ordered Simon to launch into the deep and let down the nets for a catch but Simon replied him, ‘Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing, nevertheless at your word I will let down the net.

The bible recorded that when Simon obeyed the word of God, he caught a great number of fishes and the net started to break that he had to signal to his partners for help to bring their boats, the bible says they filled both the boats, that they began to sink.

If Simon had known what was about to happen, he would have casted all the nets but he casually obeyed by saying ‘nevertheless at your word o Lord, I will cast down the net’. Simon just casted a net instead of the whole nets but God surprised him with a net breaking miracle, yet God was gracious to him not even a fish escaped the net nor died when the boats began to sink because they were assigned to be a blessing to them.

When God blesses you, your blessings can never attract sorrow but perfection because ”The blessings of God maketh rich and adds no sorrow”. (Proverbs 10:22). God can never give you a sorrowful blessing.

When your blessings are released by God, nothing can make it slip away from you and when God blesses you, He makes you a supply to others, a source of blessing to other people’s destiny.
When a man is blessed, people around him also partakes of the blessing, Simon became a supplier of fishes to his partners because Jesus stepped into his boat.

There are times you already given up on your situation and you are never expecting the miracle thinking you have passed that stage, it is no longer possible, just like the Shunammite woman that hospitalized Elisha because she feels Elisha is a holy man of God and not because of what she wants.

But the man of God blessed her that about that time the next year she would carry her son but she objected because she felt she has passed that stage but even in her objection God surprised her by honoring the words of His servant. 2Kings 4:8-17.

Sarah also doubted because she felt that she and her husband Abraham were well stricken in age but God surprised them and blessed them with Isaac.

I have come to tell you that God is bringing a surprise to your doorstep, you may not know the hour but be rest assured that with God all things are possible.
Sometimes God uses the foolish things to confound the wise.

When God wants to surprise you, it does not matter how long the problem has been, when Jesus asked them to roll away the stone at Lazarus tomb, Martha said Lazarus would have decayed and smelling for he has been there for four days but Jesus said to her if you believe you will see the glory of God and God was glorified
John 11:39-40.

I pray for you…
Every stone laid on you, I roll it away by the supernatural power of God. Every part of your body that is spiritually dead, I see it loosened by fire in Jesus name.
I terminate every force that wants to waste your efforts in life, intending to make you toil all your life without results, let them be destroyed by fire in the mighty name of Jesus.
