HE REVEALS SECRET
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye
Memorise: "And He that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass" Daniel 2:9bRead: 2Kings 6:8-12Bible in one year: Daniel 4-6Prayer point: "Father, never keep me in the dark pertaining the plans of my enemies. O Lord, expose them to me and put me steps ahead of them"
Psalm 147:5 says God’s understanding is infinite - without limits. Cod knows everything about everybody, and can occasionally reveal a bit of such information by the gift of the word of knowledge to His own. In 2 Kings 6:8-12, the king of Syria was planning to ambush the king of Israel, and each time he planned, Elisha would warn the king of Israel not to follow that path, and so he escaped several times. One day, the king of Syria called a meeting of members of his cabinet to ask who was betraying his trust. One of them who knew what was going on; told him that all his servants and leaders were faithful, but that Elisha the prophet had the ability to hear everything they discussed in their most private location. When God shows you the trap your enemies have set for you and its location, it will be easy to overcome their plan by avoiding it. The Lord will release the gift of the word of knowledge to you this season and He will reveal the plans of your enemies to you before their execution. The Lord will give you a bit of His knowledge in order to give you an edge over enemies, situations and circumstances this year in Jesus name.
In one of our Conventions held many years ago, we had a great time. At about 12 midnight when we were about to round off the service, I called out pastors for special prayers. Just before 1 would pray for them, God opened my ears and I clearly heard a witch on my right telling another witch on my left that it was now time for them to do their havoc; So I told the pastors to wait and I asked the two witches that just had that conversation to come out or else they would be buried by the following week. They came out and were delivered. In manifesting the word of knowledge, your spiritual ears must be open and your spiritual eyes must see what God wants heard or seen.
Some years ago, one of my parish pastors heard and saw a conversation between his senior pastor and others stating why his parish would not be made an area headquarters. Later, when he met that senior pastor, he was told of their decision hut he told his pastor that he already knew because he heard their conversation. From now on, the Lord will open your spiritual ears to hear what He hears, and cause you to know what He knows. Ask for this gift today!
