BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 23-25
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 11:12; Genesis 27:40 (KJV)
12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.
MEMORY VERSE: “And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the LORD their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity.” – Zephaniah 2:7
Depart from the camp of ‘I pray last year, nothing happened’. God’s delay is not denial. It is too late to think about yesterday.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
YOUR PAST WILL NO LONGER HINDER YOUR FUTURE.
Knowing how to deal with the enemy is our focus today. The enemy is not a gentleman. He is a violent enemy, who cannot be cajoled or appeased. The only language that he understands is the language of violence.
When the strong man is in charge of someone’s case, those who are praying with the person will be scared away. The person will always be going from one form of accident to another. He may be seeing dead relatives or ghosts. He may be a victim of chains of bad luck. He may be hearing strange voices. He may have to undergo multiple surgical operations for strange sicknesses. Suicidal thoughts may fill his mind.
However, since the only language the strong man understands is VIOLENCE, you will need the assistance of the stronger man, the Lord Jesus Christ. You must understand that binding is the effective weapon against the strong man. It is the most potent weapon for dealing with the strong man. When the strong man is in charge of your case, you will say: “I don’t dream, I just sleep.” But you dream. What happens is that the strong man always takes away your monitor. You also find yourself doing a lot of hard work, with little progress to show for it. When you pray, something is stubbornly resisting your prayers. You are engaged in profitless hard work. You just feel as if something has gone wrong with you somewhere.
Beloved, today’s passages are very powerful. By thy sword, you shall live. The enemy’s yoke can only be taken off your neck, when you exercise dominion. Do not settle for anything less.
- Every conglomeration of witches, be melted, in the name of Jesus.
- I loosen my life from every witchcraft poisoning, in the name of Jesus.
- I break the poison in my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Every Haman assigned against my life, fall down and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Every messenger of death assigned against my life, go back to your sender, in the name of Jesus.
- Every agent of death buried inside my body, come out and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Every gate of death assigned to swallow me, swallow your owner, in the name of Jesus.
