Vol. 2, No. 26 – Monday, 26th June, 2017
(Psalm 37:8, Ecclesiastes 7:1-9)
YOUR EXPECTATION WILL BEGET THAT MANIFESTATION IF YOU WIN THE BATTLE AT THE GATE
I congratulate in advance those of us participating in the seven-day fasting, vigil and prayer. The Lord has promised good concerning us. This is a reassuring assurance. Therefore, in the name of the Lord Jesus, none of us will be left out of his goodness.
It is however needful for me to write you not any thing new but a reminder. That the last blows from the enemy at the gate of breakthroughs are provocation and discouragement comes as no news to any of us.
Is it not so painful both to God (the greatest provider) and indeed to man that man does all the job of seeking the face of the Lord, draws down the hand of heaven but in the end it is satan who reaps the bumper harvest of assiduous fasting and prayer? How? Through the sin of anger.
Sin is a waster; anger and discouragement are key in this sin’s wastage transaction. I confirm to you dearly beloved that there is no other evil driver who can drive a man out of the theatre-room of his/her breakthroughs as provocation.
The trouble about provocation is that it has no respect for anyone. The greater trouble is that the most fervent warfare prayer which can destroy the strongest witch in the universe cannot conquer the darts of provocation.
Surprised!!! The only two antidotes for defusing provocation before and at the gate of breakthrough is sanctification through the prayer of grace and Spirit-controlled discipline. Anger has no respect for even the most fiery anointing.
Therefore, at this period of waiting on the Great King and of course always, shun and detest anger with perfect hatred and refusal. Are you aware that anger is so severe that it is much easier to deliver a witch than to cast out the spirit of anger? Why?
In the main, anger is a natural phenomenon. What this means is that what turns-on the anger-gear in man is securely entrenched in man’s being; it is his natural nature. It of course remains so until the surgical knife of the Almighty by means of sanctification uproot it from the human heart.
Provocation at the edge or gate of breakthrough will always shift the goal-post. This means that it is potent enough to postpone the glorious day to another. I decree, your glorious day shall neither be postponed nor be held-back in the traffic of life, in Jesus name.
IN THE END, IF THE BUTTON OF ANGER IS THE REMOTE-CONTROL BY WHICH MY LIFE IS BEING ORDERED, THEN PULLING IT OFF AND PUTTING-ON A BUTTON-LESS SHIRT TO THE MOST GORGEOUS OCCASION IS A MOST PREFERRED WISDOM (to be continued next week).
Altar call: 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 Ps.54 in closing and pray more).
