07 MAY – 13 MAY 2018
SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: LUKE 7:11
Greetings beloved; what a glorious time we had in the presence of God this weekend. People came from all over to encounter the goodness of the Lord in Alleluia ministries, in the IVP. They came to taste and see the goodness of the Lord. They experienced the miracle working power of God right in this place. Our God is a good God; He is a compassionate God and He is great in power.
Concerning the above scripture, our Man of God said, the story was not really about the dead, but about his mother, who was also a widow. She had lost her husband and now she was losing her son. The enemy comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. He is a thief and he comes to steal. He comes to take illegally what does not belong to him. There are people whose health is stolen; and there are people whose peace is stolen. But the anointing of the Lord is present to break the back bone of the enemy in your life, in Jesus’ name. Whatever was stolen from you is coming back to you.
The devil is wicked. Some people say, you must mind the devil and he will not mind you. There are two great deceptions of the devil: The first one is to make people believe that he does not exist. He knows that if we believe he does not exist we will not mind him. His second deception is to make those who believe he exists to think he is not guilty. They believe that the devil exists but they think he is busy with other things. The devil comes without an invitation. Thinking that, if you do not mind him he will not mind you, is a big mistake. Satan hates you because he sees God in you. He hates that you were made in God’s image and likeness. Every time he sees you he does not need a reason to go all out against you. He is so wicked that he will wage war against a zygote in the womb of the mother. That is why Jesus said, Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
What did the devil take from you? Did he take your marriage? Did he take your child? Did he take your business? God will rectify everything and restore everything that has been stolen from you. In the scripture above, the woman lost the only child he had. But Jesus happened to be there and His eyes saw the pain of this woman. Jesus Christ is here and he sees your pain. Our God is a merciful God. We serve a compassionate God. He feels for you. He does not want you to go to waste.
When Jesus saw the woman weep for her son he was moved by compassion and He did something about her situation. He touched the coffin in which her son was laid and those who were carrying the coffin stopped. Whoever is carrying an operation that will put you in the grave will stop today. Some families, marriages and dreams are broken and are being carried in the coffin to the grave. The hand of Jesus will touch the coffin where your miracle has been laid. He will stop the proceeding of your burial. He is stepping in your battle; it is not over until God says it is over. In this season you will weep no more; Jesus will wipe away your tears. Your time to mourn is over. What you did not see before you will begin to see. What you lost will again manifest. You will stand up and say look what the Lord has done.
Jesus looked at the young man who was in the coffin and said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” Immediately the young man got up and began to speak. This will represent the miracle God is giving you. God is giving you a standing and a speaking miracle. This is a visible miracle. You will not have to debate with your mockers anymore. Your miracle will speak for you. It shall be clear that you have received a miracle. God will do in your life exceeding, abundantly, above all you can think, ask and hope for, in the name of Jesus.
