TIME TO WAR-22/4/2014

TIME TO WAR-22/4/2014

Yesterday’s message was titled DISCERNMENT - HOW VITAL!. Today’s message is titled “TIME TO WAR” as provided by Pastor E. A. Adeboye in Open Heavens Devotional (Adeboye, 2014). In today’s message, we have been asked to memorise Psalms 119:89: For ever; O LORD, Thy word is settled in heaven. " Today's reading was taken from Daniel 3:16-17 and the Bible reading in one year is Nahum 1 -3, Habakkuk 1-3 and Psalm 88  (Adeboye, 2014). 

Quoted below is today's message for your input.

There are times when you have to make war. Sometime ago, I was walking round our Camp ground praying and I saw two snakes. Would you say I should leave the snakes to go on their own? If I leave them to go, they would grow to become bigger and who knows, they could come back and attack me or any of my children. When I see a snake, that snake must die! Cancer is a snake; if it is in your body, I curse it in Jesus‘ Name. Barrenness is a snake opening its mouth and eating the seeds of husbands. It shall die in Jesus‘ Name. There are times we need to speak for miracles to happen. If you keep quiet when you are expected to speak, your problem will remain quiet with you. After all, silence implies consent. If you have a sickness and it is okay by you, the sickness will stay. If you have demons in the form of a house help and you are willing to keep them, all well and good. Wait until they have poisoned your husband or until they have destroyed your marriage; if that is okay with you, then it is fine. However, such is not fine with me. No evil shall remain in my home or in the church of God in Jesus‘ Name. If you would satisfy some conditions, then you shall decree a thing, and it shall be established unto you. The condition is that you should remain holy. Whenever it is time to decree, just make sure you link Jesus Christ with your decree. Once He backs up your decree, it shall be established.

In Genesis 22:7-8, Isaac said to Abraham that he could see the wood and the fire but not the animal to be used as a sacrifice. Abraham said the Lord shall provide for Himself a lamb for the sacrifice. He linked the Almighty God with the decree and by the time he got to the mountain top, there was a lamb already waiting. In 1 Samuel 17:45, David said to Goliath that he had come to him in the Name of the Lord, the Lord of Hosts, who would hand Goliath over to him for him to cut his head. He did not say he would kill Goliath himself, but that God would hand Goliath over to him. So when it is time to decree over your enemies, do not just say, ”l am going to step over you" but say, God will make you a stepping stone for me”. Whenever it is time to issue decrees, do not talk as if you are the Almighty.

Hide within Him and then use Him to make your decree. Spoken words can be extremely powerful. If a nation wants to go to war with another nation, nation, they declare war by speaking. When the war is over, they declare peace by speaking. If you say you are born-again and there is no accompanying change in your life, you better go to Jesus and declare war declare war against everything that is incongruent with the nature of God in your life.

The prayer point for today is Father, do something new in my life today.

God bless you richly for your contribution

  1. How forcible are right words. Words are perhaps the most powerful tool in all the earth- when spoken in righteousness and sound understanding of the will of God; every forces in heaven and on earth work out its fulfilment.
    Bearing this in mind, In the name of Jesus Christ, by the power that raised Jesus from the grave, I decree peace over Nigeria... Peace in the North, South, East, West, our borders, in the government and the hearts of the citizens. By the power of the risen Lord, i command the defence of the terrorists to vanish from them, i speak failure, sicknesses, weakness and misunderstanding in their camps in the name of JESUS! Nigeria, Live! Enjoy the peace of God in Jesus mighty name!
