THE MESSAGE NOW
Vol. 2, No. 27 – Monday, 3rd July, 2017
(Mark.11:22, 1 Samuel 30:1-31, 1 Kings 19:1-21)
YOUR EXPECTATION WILL BEGET THAT MANIFESTATION IF YOU WIN THE BATTLE AT THE GATE
If indeed, anger and discouragement are the last blows from the enemy at the very edge/gate of breakthroughs, I contend that in actual reality, discouragement is the final punch of the enemy that has and continues to break the spirit, faith and expectations of so many.
The singular assignment of this most potent satanic weapon is to cause man to retire from his spiritual duties shortly before man’s loudest joy and celebration.
The other reason is to destroy one’s destiny and consequently destroy other destinies attached to one’s destiny.
Third is that the weapon of discouragement will often be triggered after victory is won. Why? The enemy wants to prevent the victory won from being victory seen and enjoyed. But understand dearly beloved that if it is of faith, then victory won is as good as victory seen.
Have you not just ended a period of seven-day prayer and fasting? Were your prayers and fasting not offered unto God the Most High? Does God rejoice in man’s unanswered prayers? If the answer to the last question is NO! then keep your expectations so high because you will never be disappointed.
It is written: ‘for surely there is an end, and thine expectation shall not be cut off’ (Prov.23:18). Therefore, I decree that those great things which the reader of this magazine have presented to the Lord, shall manifest, be enjoyed and not be hindered or delayed in any way, in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Consider this: what would have been the fate of Asahel, Jehu and Lisha (and indeed) the lives and destinies which Elisha’s ministry touched if God had not intervened in the case of Elijah’s discouragement?
Really, was discouragement not at the very point of destroying Elijah’s uncommon breakthrough of entering heaven alive? Again, were it not for God, wouldn’t discouragement have terminated David’s life prematurely?
The same discouragement (which gave rise to evil minds) was responsible for that evil suggestion by the remaining four hundred men to leave out the fainting two hundred men in the sharing of the spoil.
Dearly beloved, be informed that there is always a constant battle at the gate of your breakthroughs (Judges.5:8). The seven days of your waiting on the Lord will never be a waste, in the name of the Lord Jesus. But be aware that the enemy of the human good will do everything to snatch your won victory at the gate.
THEREFORE, KEEP THE FIRE OF FAITH BLOSSOMING THROUGH RIGHTEOUS FIGHT. FOR NO MAN WINS THE CROWN OF GREATNESS WITHOUT FIRST FIGHTING THE SURE BATTLE AT THE GATE.
Backslidden – living in sin – needing fresh recommitment (say):
Christ Jesus, You are the Anointed One of the Most High. I come to you today as I am. In your mercy, help me out of my situation. Heal my soul, my spirit, my body, my life and my destiny. I acknowledge you as the only true lover of my soul. Please, deliver me on every side and save me through and through. I promise from the depth of my soul to be yours from henceforth, in Jesus name.
Help me now O God. Be my Lord, my Saviour and my all in all from this day. Thank you Lord (read Psalm 54 in closing and pray more).
