UNLEASHING THE VENGEANCE OF THE LORD UPON THE ENEMY
Say to those of a fearful-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense (reward) of God; He will come and save you” Isa 35:4.
I would like to welcome you into this month of January 2020. OUR 2020 IS YEAR Of UNLEASHING THE VENGEANCE OF THE LORD UPON THE ENEMY.
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our God To comfort all who mourn, 3 To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified”-Isa 61:1-3.
In the above scripture, you will see that it has started with an assurance that God's Spirit is upon you. It also indicating the purpose of the Spirit of God in your life. As God has said to us that this is the year of Unleashing His vengeance upon the enemies. It is the year of invoking the anger and the judgement of God upon His enemies; And, to declare only what is acceptable by the Lord and to comfort those who mourn.
The bible says that there is time for everything (Eccl. 3:1), and God makes things beautiful in His time (Eccl. 3:11). Therefore, this is the time for God to fight His enemies. God's anointing which is His Spirit is upon you and He needs you to act in prayers, faith and actions.
It is to judge every situation that has been in your lives, family and nation. It is time to condemn them. Behold I gave you power, whatever you permit will be permitted in heaven. What you accept will be accepted in heaven. “And so I tell all of you: what you (BIND) prohibit on earth will be (BOUND) prohibited in heaven, and what you (ALLOW, LOOSE) permit on earth will be (ALLOWED, LOOSED) permitted in heaven” Matt 18:18.
It is time to condemn that sickness by the power of God. Speak the good things which has not been in your life or about to die. It is the will of God for you to be in good health “My dear friend, I pray that everything may go well (PROSPER) with you and that you may be in good health as I know you are (PROSPER) well in spirit.” 3 John 2.
Speak good health. Speak life to any dead organ of your body. Speak life to that dead business, visions, dreams and studies. Speak life to your certificates and all your documents. Speak life to your family.
The anointing is Holy Spirit. You are the Anointed one and God is the Anointer. When Holy Spirit is upon you, you will not be threatened by anything. God anointed you to preach, demonstrate, declare His good things. For the anointing to continue flowing, you must abide in the Anointer (God) or else you will run out the anointing (John 15:5).
The anointing of God must flow from you to the rest part of your life -Ps. 133: 2. When you are anointed everything about you will be anointed. When are empty of the Anointing (dry), everything about you will be dry. When the heavens are open over you, everything will be fruitful in your life. You need the anointing of God for your life to be fruitful. Just like Jesus whose message has power, prosper, deliver and heal. You need anointing to do great things.
The Anointing is the one that will set you apart from your mates. He will make you an extraordinary person.
Anointing will set your business apart. Unbelievers look for shining. When they see that you are passing where others are not passing, they will try to attach themselves to you in order to know the secret behind your victory. They may ask you which lip balm, powder, spray, charms you use that you are so favored. Next thing is to try to follow you to church to see what Pastor do for you. What you need is the power of God. The power of God is not for decoration but for demonstration.
To be an instrument of comfort, you must be delivered from sorrow. For you to overcome sorrow; you must be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might Eph. 6:10. You must be joyful in every situation, “in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thess. 5:18. It is time to tell the righteous that it is well with them- Isa. 3:10. It is time to tell the people the wonders of God. Your life is a testimony and it can be used as an instrument to comfort those who mourn. Do not be ashamed to share your testimonies. Remember, you are no longer in that situation, you have overcome and now can tell other how to overcome.
In this year of the Lord's vengeance as a worker, do your work very well. Stop being irresponsible and playing with irregularities in your office. You are advised to work with all your strength whenever your hands find work to do- Eccl. 9:10. Stop playing with your works. Let your works show that you are a child God.
As a married couple, do not deal treacherously with the wife/husband of your youth. God is the judge and greatest witness to your union. “Yet you say, “For what reason? Because the Lord has been witnessed between you and the wife of your youth with whom you have dealt treacherously and your wife by covenant” Mal 2:14. Treat your spouse well.
Student pay attention to your Study. “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore, he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”Dan 1:8.
Decide to study and not to allow anything to defile your study and your future. It's very important to know why you are at school and what you want to achieve. Setting a goal and high target will push you to concentrate. Many that seems like their future were bright were not able accomplish their goals because they were defiled on their way to accomplishment Ps. 119:1. “My son (child) when sinner want to entice (lure, try, seduce, manipulate, coarse) say no to them” Prov. 1:10. Therefore, take care of your future today so that your future will take care of you tomorrow..
FOR YOU NOT TO BE DESTROYED WITH THE WICKED:
Obedience to God
“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth” Deut. 28:1.
Disobedience has caused us a lot which makes us to lose our things to unbelievers who supposed to be our servants-1 King 11, Solomon's heart moved away from God. God warned us not to marry unbelievers. King Solomon did not hear rather proceeded to marry as many of them his heart desired. God does not want us to put our hands in iniquity. He always wants us to be obedient to Him. My son give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of (center) your heart; 22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh” Prov. 4:21-22.
As parent, please be careful of what you are doing now for it will influence your children. Solomon and king Ahab sinned but the punishment was placed upon their children. Every sin has a consequence. We must make sure that we are walking in the path of righteousness. Most time we wonder why things are taken from our hands.
Obedience is very important. You must be prompt to hear Him, recognize and obey. In your obedience, you will save yourself and everything which belongs to you from danger and destruction.
Avoid Evil Company
“Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame” 1 Cor.15:33-34.
Stay away from the corrupt people. They call themselves Christians, but they only want what the Lord has but not to live a godly life. They pick scriptures that suits them and complain about the ones they are not ready to do. They will introduce you to idolatry. You will begin to complain like them over church services and messages. You will also be joined to talk against a brother in the church. “Blessed are those who are undefiled in their way who walks in the law of the Lord” Ps. 119:1. “Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful” Ps.1:1.
Become A God's Lover
The Bible says in the last days, perilous times will come. For men will be lovers if themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good. Traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of god, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away. 2 Tim 3:1-5. The Love of many has gone cold and they find every reason why they will not love God. Love the Lord with all your heart which is the first greatest commandment. Let us love and serve Him with all that we have. Our spouses, children, careers, connection, money, etc. It takes love to follow the Lord. If your love for Jesus is no longer the way it was when you first got saved, it means it's cold. Revive your love for God for He is awesome - 4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. 5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place-unless you repent” Rev. 2:4-5.
Apostle Paul prayed for the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you (us) all. Amen! -2 Cor 13:14.
The love of God is important in your daily life. It's the love you have for the Lord will enable you to seek what you will do for God. It's what will help you to serve Him faithfully. A God's lover is always hungry and thirsty for God's righteousness and glory. They always seek after His kingdom and righteousness Math 6:33. A God's lover will be hungry to see the kingdom of God advancing. It's not interested in what God can give but in what He can do for God. You will want to see His work moving forward. A God's lover will never murmur or complain while doing God's work. A God's lover will fight to be pure 'for without holiness, no eyes will see the Lord. A God's lover will always put himself on the scale of God to judge himself if he /she is living right. You must know that your life belongs to God and you will give account of how you lived your life on earth. “Behold, I am coming quickly, hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown”- Rev. 3:11, “Behold I am coming quickly, and my reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work”- Rev.22:12.
Become A kingdom Builder
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” Eph 2:10. You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: For with you I will break the nation in pieces…” Jer. 50:20-23, Jer.1:10.
If you are not building the kingdom of God, you are building the kingdom of the devil because any offerings and sacrifices you gave will impact the work of God. If you refuse to give to God's works; you are giving to the devil.
Let your light shine before men that they may see your work and glorify your God-Math 5:13-16. He has called you to do great work on this earth. When God comes; will He meet you working for Him or against Him? Work and walk with Him. Allow Him to use you for greater works. God needs you to do the work.
This is not the year to complain that as you were praying, they were attacking you. It's to pray for God to prevail in any battle He commissioned you to fight. God bless You! Amen!
