Prayers against sudden death: My life shall not be robbed!

John 10:10 records Jesus saying, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full

 

“The hole made by burglars that robbed my house this morning as my family and I were away worshiping God in the church. My iPad, Apple MacPro laptop and many other valuable items were stolen. Be careful in case the thieves are able to access my mailboxes, Facebook accounts and other Internet data. Thanks” – Pastor Bayo Afolaranmi

Pastor Bayo Afolaranmi, an Internet Ministry Officer of the Nigerian Baptist Convention posted this entry on his facebook page yesterday. As I read it, the ministration I had is that this is the ministry of the thief that Jesus talks about in John 10 vs 10; Praise God the thief only robbed his physical properties, his soul and that of his children were not robbed. The Holy Spirit ministered these prayers to share with the brethren:

  1. Powers planning to rob my life, I kill you in Jesus name
  2. I kill killing powers and and destroy destroying powers in Jesus name.
  3. Dark powers assigned to cut down my life, I cut you down in Jesus name.
  4. Spiritual robbers of souls, my life is not available for you in Jesus name.
  5. Physical and Spiritual robbers assigned against me, be arrested in Jesus name
  6. I pursue, overtake, and recover all good virtues robbed from me in Jesus name.
  7. I kill every robber of my blessings in Jesus name.

Matthew 13 vs. 25      But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

These are the words of our Lord Jesus Christ and there are several lessons we can learn from this passage:

  1. The first lesson we learn from this passage is that there is an enemy.
  2. The second lesson is that the enemy comes when we are sleeping
  3. The third lesson we learn from this passage is that Christians sleep too much, and that is the greatest lesson from this passage. Jesus Christ describes Christian as men. Men are supposed to watch and pray, Men are supposed to be alert, not sleeping and snoring.
  4. The third lesson is that enemy comes to pollute and contaminate the spirit of man.
  5. The fourth lesson is that the enemy comes to…

Bible commentary om Rev. 3 vs 20 : Here I am , I stand by the door and knock

Rev. 3 vs. 20:  Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

download (6)

What are the lessons of this verse?

  1. Jesus wants to save you, that’s why he is standing by the door of your heart.
  2. Jesus have been standing at the door of your heart, since your birth; you might have served God before and have not backslidden. He is saying, Here I am to receive you back to me, if only you can repent.
  3. Jesus does not force himself on anyone; he cannot force himself into your heart; that’s why he is waiting for you to open your heart to accept him.
  4. Jesus is eager to receive you to his kingdom that is why he is standing not sitting, though the act of standing is more stressful. It shows he is ready to sacrifice and endure pain in order to receive you to his kingdom. How long would you keep Jesus standing
  5. You have closed your hearts to his words, and he wants you to open it now for him.
  6. Jesus could not come into your heart, because someone else- Satan has occupied your heart. Why not cast Satan out of your heart, and allow Jesus to come in now? Rev. 3 vs. 20: Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
  7. Jesus says if anyone hears my voice…meaning Salvation is for everyone and anyone. No matter the gravity of your past sins, Jesus is willing to forgive you if you come to him in repentance.
  8. Jesus says if anyone hears my voice…meaning it is possible to hear Gods voice or the devil’s voice. Which voice have you been obeying?
  9. Jesus says if you open the door, he will come in…meaning salvation is a freewill. The decision to serve Jesus or Satan is your choice.
  10. Lastly Jesus promises a marriage supper of the Lamb if you accept him as Lord and Savior. There is rest, joy, and peace with Jesus. If you open your heart for him he will give you abundant life. Jesus is not calling you to poverty, rather he wants to save you and bear your burdens.
  11. Would you invite Jesus into your heart today?

Commentary Job 22 vs 28: Secret to answered prayers

Read Job 22 vs 26 – 28: 26 For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God. 27 Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows. 28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

  1. Many of us merely quote Job 22 vs 28, on the power Christians have to decree a thing, but the earlier three verses show that there are conditions to be met before our prayers can be answered.
  2. First, you should delight in the Lord by meditating on His word day and night, doing what pleases Him, and always fellow shipping with Him.- Verse 26
  3. Second, you need to trust in Him, see Him as your helper, and run to Him for deliverance Vs 26.download (2)
  4. Third, you need to pray to God until something happens Vs 27.
  5. Fourth, you need to pay your vows. Are you owning God debts, they pay it up. Vs 27
  6. But for me, the most important condition is ‘having thy delight in the Almighty’. If you have a good relationship with God, He will answer you before asking.
  7. Do you want to walk in the supernatural and have the power to decree prayers to reality? First step is starting  a relationship with God, by giving your life to Christ now.

Bible commentary on 1 Corinthians 3 vs 16: Christians as temples of God

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you1 Corinthians 3 vs 16

Being the temple of God, means being His representation, His image, His living church, His glory, and His Holiness. Of course, you can not be a temple of God without the spirit of God living inside you.

Do you wish to be a temple of God, then become born again. Do you wish to remain a temple of God, then avoid these things.

Things to avoid as a Temple of God

  1. Avoid lying- The temple of God should reflect the truth.
  2. Avoid sexual perversion- Fornication, Adultery, Pornography, Homosexuality, Masturbation. The spirit of God inside you will not join you to sleep with a woman not your wife.
  3. Dress well- Your dressing should be modest, add to your beauty, and glorify God.
  4. Don’t Tattoo your bodies- You are the image of God, don’t deface your body with other images.
  5. Avoid evil- Take control of your heart, and cast out wicked thoughts as they come.
  6. Feed your Spirit- The spirit of God inside your needs to be feed from time to time, with the word of God, godly music, and godly movies.
  7. Avoid Anger- the Spirit of God is meek, watch your tongue, avoid anger, provocation, bless don’t curse etc
  8. Avoid evil company- Watch where you go. Before going anyway, ask yourself, would the spirit of God like to be with me in this place? Flee from ungodly places. Don’t go where Jesus will not go.
  9. Avoid fear- You are a temple of God, you cannot be destroyed by Satan. Avoid fear of sudden death, accident, assassination etc. The spirit of God inside you will keep you from all harm.
  10. Be a good Christian- You are a carrier of God’s spirit. There is God in you, let your character show forth His praises.

Should students or children pay tithes?

But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth- Deuteronomy 8 vs 18

About three decades  ago, my Late father was furious with my elder brother because the latter decided to pay  tithes out of the N500 (five hundred naira) bursary awarded my brother by the the Oyo State Government.

My brother was then a student of the University of Ibadan. The argument of my father was that the bursary was not an earned income, and   my elder brother should have devoted it wholly to his expenses on the campus, especially when the family was then in dire financial straits.

Thirty years later, I faced a similar situation.  I normally send pocket money to my son who is an undergraduate of a Nigerian university. Yesterday, he phoned to inform me that he had spent about one third of his pocket money I sent to him few days ago (for the month of May 2015) for church related expenses, including of course, a tithe of the pocket money. The implication of e this is that, I have to send more money before the end of the month, as the church related expenses have eaten into his pocket money.

I did not know how best to respond when he gave me this information. I remembered the situation my late father faced and wondered whether my father (in retrospect) was right or wrong. My first reaction was to inform my son that if he decides to spend the money meant for his feeding and books on church related expenses, then that should be his own business.

But I restrained myself and meditated on the situation. Should I encourage my son to tithe from the pocket money I give him?

I finally decided that I should not discourage him. Though the money he is tithing from is not his earned income, it is a financial increase for him, for which he should remember his Creator in line with Deuteronomy 8 vs 18.

More importantly, it is good to train our children on how to tithe from an early age. When they grow up and start to earn income, they will not have any problem tithing. In any case, tithes should not be paid only from earned income, but an financial increase coming to us. So, in my son case, the pocket money I sent to him represented a financial increase.

In any case, I thought I should not discourage him from building a personal relationship with God.

Also as a friend  counselled, the underlying principle of giving to God, is an expression of God’s love towards God…and any child who is old enough to recognize that and wishes to express it should not be discouraged, but can be guided.

Nepal earthquake:Nepalese, where are thy gods?

                                                 By Babatope Babalobi

Deuteronomy 28:

15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lordthy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.

59 Then the Lord wImage result for nepal earthquakeill make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.

63 And it shall come to pass, that as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.

  1. The major global news this past week is the earthquake in Nepal, an Asian countr,  that has led to the death of over 6000 people and left over 12000 people homeless as of today.
  2. When tragedies of this magnitude happen, it is common to question the place of God, and  ask why He has allowed such an occurrence.
  3. Though natural disasters occur in both christian and non christian nations, the promises of the scriptures are still clear..in the mist of these calamities, God will still divinely protect His people from harm.
  4. The case of Nepal is however peculiar. Christians represent less than 1% of the Nepalese population which most being Hindus.
  5. I visited Nepal in 2007, and was amazed to find Hindu shrines in almost every corner, every home, every office, every hotel, every public and every private place.
  6. There are also several hundreds of Hindu temples located all over the country, with reports showing most of them destroyed by the recent earthquake.
  7. The recent earthquake is God’s mockery and judgement on widespread  idolatry in Nepal. The millions of  Hindu shrines and hundreds of  Hindu temples have failed to save their adherents.
  8. But even in the midst of these, Christians should demonstrate God’s love to the victims, intercede for God’s mercy, and pray that the eyes of the people of Nepal should be opened to the foolishness of serving man made gods.

Prayers against witchcraft attacks

O foolish Galatianswho has bewitched you- Galatians 3 vs 1

By Babatope Babalobi

 

  1. What is bewitchment? It is being manipulated by witchcraft against the will of God.
  2. This statement therefore means that witchcraft is real.
  3. Another meaning of this statement is that a Christian can be bewitched.
  4. In the passage quoted above, the Galatians were bewitched as such they did not accept the truth of the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
  5. This passage is therefore saying, that when one becomes bewitched, the person acts foolishly.
  6. The bible is saying it is foolish to be bewitched, especially when you are neither aware of this or accept this, as it shows you don’t know your right and power as a Christian.
  7. In the Bible, the thoughts of the Galatians were bewitched.
  8. Your health, finances, marriage, certificates, academics, business, family etc can therefore also be bewitched.
  9. The questions the Holy Spirit is asking you today is why do you allow witchcraft powers to be manipulating your life as a child of God? Who is the witchcraft power that has bewitched you? What are you doing against the powers of witchcraft has bewitched your wife, husband, marriage, job, income, health, promotion, pregnancy, businesses?Image result for victory in christ
  10. The Holy Spirit wants you today to investigate every aspect of your life that you have facing contrary situations, every aspect of your life that you are facing bewitchment, and kill the powers that have bewitched you.
  11. As you surrender your life to Christ, as you live in holiness, as you fight against bewitchment with prayers, fasting, and the word of God, my prayer for you today is that every bewitchment against your life shall be destroyed, and the powers of witchcraft manipulating your life shall die in Jesus name; and you shall live your glorious destiny in Jesus name.

David recovered all: How to overcome life challenges and crisis situations

 

By Babatope Babalobi

 

Read 1 Samuel 30, This is the story of how Amalekites took the wives, children, and properties of David captive, and ran away with them; but David was able to recover all after God encouraged him to pursue them. There are several lessons from this epic story

  1. they slew not any’– verse 2. God still intervenes when the enemy attacks you. God did not allow the Amalekites to kill the wives and children of David. They merely took them captive. If the Amalekites have killed all the inhabitants of Ziklag when they attacked the city, David would have come and find all members of his household dead. David was able to rescue his household taken captive, because they were still alive, as God restrained the Amalekites from killing them.
  2. They David and the people that were with him wept……until they had no more power to weep’– verse 4. If you are in crisis situation, weeping or crying does not solve your problems, it can only increase your blood pressure making you depressed and hypertensive. David and his people almost wept themselves to death, but this did not bring back the people taken captives. Weeping glories Satan, not God
  3. David was distressed, grieved, and was about to be stoned to death’– verse 6. Are you presently grieved, depressed, and on the verge of committing suicide? David was in a similar situation, but he was able to overcome this. If you follow the steps of David, you shall surely overcome your present grief, depression, and anxieties in Jesus name.
  4. But David encouraged himself in the Lord his God’- verse 6. In whom are you encouraging yourself, when you are in crisis- false prophets, your riches, friends, wisdom, or power? David looked up to the God of heavens when he was in crisis. The first step you need to take to overcome your crisis, is to hand over the burden to the burden bearer and crisis solver.
  5. But David encouraged himself in the Lord his God’- verse 6. David could encouraged himself in the Lord because he had a relationship with God. He was a child of God, and ran to his father for help in trouble. If you are not a child of God, your father would not listen to you in trouble. Another step you need to take to overcome your afflictions and crisis situations is to become a born again Christian. When you surrender your life to God, it includes your burdens, yokes, challenges, crisis, and difficulties.
  6. And David enquired of the Lord’- verse 8. Another secret of overcoming crises is seeking the face of God. The Holy Spirit is the revealer of secrets and knows both the causes of your problems as well as the solutions. You need to enquire from the Lord the way out of your problems. David was able to overcome because, God told him the way out.
  7. And David enquired of the Lord’- verse 8. It goes without saying that before you can enquire of the Lord, you should have a relationship with God.  God would not respond to your prayers, unless  you are not walking in righteousness. God keeps silent when several people call to him in troubles, because their hands are full of sin and iniquities. The days of trouble shall surely come, from time to time, but you need to walk with God always to be able to overcome these evil days through divine guidance.
  8. ‘Pursue, for thou shall surely overtake them, and without fail recover all’ verse 8. Another lesson form this story is that you must be willing to PURSUE if you wish to overcome your problems. Many of us are docile, lazy, fatalistic, and fearful. David pursued his enemies, fought them, overcame them, and recovered all. If he did not pursue, he would not have overtaken. If he did not overtake, he would not have recovered. Depending on your circumstances, the act of pursuing may be different from what David did. But you need to take steps to move forward. You need to challenge powers that are oppressing you. You need to fight to recover your lost fortunes. Restoration may not fall on your laps unless you engage in a divine fight.
  9. ‘Pursue, for thou shall surely overtake them, and without fail recover all’- verse 8. God words are true. God is faithful. God does not lie, He does not fail, and He is sure. Just as God promised, God recovered all as stated later in verse 18 and 19 of this passage. If God has promised you, hold on to His promises in faith, they shall surely come to pass in Jesus name.david recovered all
  10. ‘But David pursued’ – verse 10. God told David to pursue. David obeyed and pursued. Therefore obedience to divine instruction, when it looks irrational is also another principle of divine restoration. What has the Holy Spirit told you to do that you have refused to do out of fear or procrastination? You miracle is in obedience.
  11. ‘And they found an Egyptian in the field, and they brought him to David’- verse 11. God has positioned someone to guide you out of your problems, as you take steps, your divine helpers will manifest in Jesus name. David never knew the way the Amalekites went. He never knew their route. He simply pursued out of blind obedience. Then help came from heaven. He met an abandoned slave from the camp of the enemy who showed him the way. Help is on your way as you take steps to come out of your crises. God shall show you the way, when there seems to be no way.
  12. ‘And they gave him a piece of a cake of figs’ – verse 12. Be nice to strangers, as your deliverance may be wrought through them. David’s camp never knew who the Egyptian abandoned in the field was, and yet they treated him nicely. Several other people might have passed by him, thinking he is an unnecessary distraction and nuisance. Alas, he held the key to the way forward in David pursuit of his enemies. Your love for your neighbors and strangers may determine your deliverance.
  13. ‘I am a young man of Egypt, servant of an Amalekite, and my master left me because there days agone I fell sick– verse 13. That was the mistake of the enemies of David, which turned to be their nemesis. As the abandoned stranger led David to the camp of his enemies. Your enemies will always make a mistake that will lead to their downfall. Stop weeping. Pray to God to open your eyes to see the mistakes of your enemies.
  14. ‘And David recovered all’ –verse 18. David recovered all the enemies stole from him. You can recover all if you follow the principles of David. You can recover your marital joy, your job, finances, health, and most importantly your salvation in Jesus name.

Power in midnight prayers: rules for all night vigil prayers

By Babatope Babalobi +2348035897435

The Bible says when men slept the enemy came Mathew 13 vs 25. To wade off the enemy, it therefore goes without saying you need to hold regular night vigils.

Follow these simple rules to hold a successful night vigil, otherwise you may find yourself unable to pray at night.

1. Choose the days you wish to pray at night as you cannot humanly observe night vigils daily, otherwise you will wear yourself out. One to three days , spread apart weekly is ideal. You need to sleep on some days as you can’t cheat nature.

2. Prepare for your vigil by sleeping for some time during the day.  This will keep you awake at midnight.

3. Take your dinner early. Don’t eat heavily if you want to stay awake at night praying. Better still fast on your vigil days and break after your prayers.

4. Be in the spirit if you are planning to pray at night. You can’t be watching action movies in the evening and plan to pray at night. Don’t alow worldly issues to distract your night prayers.

5.  Set your alarm clock to ring loudly at midnight otherwise you will most likely sleep off.

6. Study the scriptures you wish to stand on during your prayers, and be fully armed with the word of God

7. At night its best you stand up to pray. Lying on your bed or kneeling down may lead you to sleep. You are most likely not be able to doze off in a standing position.

8. The most critical period at night is between 12 noon and 1 pm.  Holding vigil outside this hour is not as effective from my personal experience.

9. If possible have a prayer partner . Iron sharpens iron.

10. Don’t overwork yourself during the day if you wish to pray at night, otherwise you will doze off due to tiredness.

Overcome fear, resist the devil, he is afraid of you

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.- James 4 vs 7

  1. You need to overcome fear of failure, fear of darkness, fear of the unknown, and fear of the devil.
  2. The truth is that the devil you fear, is the one really afraid of you as a child of God.
  3. The devil is afraid of you that is why he distracts you from reading the Bible, because he knows once you start reading the word of God, you shall know the truth that will set you free.
  4. The devil is afraid of you, thats is why he causes you to sleep off, anytime you plan to pray at night. He knows once you start praying, the power of God will destroy his works and set you free into breakthroughs.
  5. The devil is afraid of you, thats why he makes you very hungry anytime you decide to fast. He knows once you start waiting on the Lord, your deliverance shall manifest.
  6. The devil is afraid of you, that is why he distracts you from spending more time in the presence of God. He fully knows once you start work shipping God, He will intervene in your situation.overcome fear
  7. The devil is afraid of God, that is why he entices you to sin. He knows, once you live a Holy life, you shall spend your days and years in prosperity and pleasures.
  8. James 4 vs 7- Submit to God (Give your life to Christ); resist the devil (in prayer, by the word, by holiness, and service) ; He will flee from you (and this will mark your breakthroughs.
  9. Dont fear the devil, he is the afraid of you

New Year sermon: O God, give me a new glory!

             By Babatope Babalobi +2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com

Genesis 27 vs 35-40

35 But Isaac said, “Your brother was here, and he tricked me. He has taken away your blessing.”

36 Esau exclaimed, “No wonder his name is Jacob, for now he has cheated me twice. [a] First he took my rights as the firstborn, and now he has stolen my blessing. Oh, haven’t you saved even one blessing for me?”

37 Isaac said to Esau, “I have made Jacob your master and have declared that all his brothers will be his servants. I have guaranteed him an abundance of grain and wine—what is left for me to give you, my son?”

38 Esau pleaded, “But do you have only one blessing? Oh my father, bless me, too!” Then Esau broke down and wept. 39 Finally, his father, Isaac, said to him, “You will live away from the richness of the earth,    and away from the dew of the heaven above.40 You will live by your sword,     and you will serve your brother.But when you decide to break free,    you will shake his yoke from your neck.”

  1. The story of how Jacob deceitfully took the blessings of Esau, the first son of Isaac has been told and retold as one of the classic stories of all times.
  2. The Holy Spirit wishes to minister to us through this story once more, and it is from this, that I am bringing out the new year message for 2015 titled: ‘O God of Esau, give me a new glory’
  3. We need to read and meditate on the two passages above in order to clearly and fully comprehend the import of this message.
  4. We see Esau in Genesis 27 vs 38 discouraged, disillusioned, angry, confused, depressed, hopeless, dejected, and sad. More importantly he was weeping thinking all hope for him to become a blessed man, to become a great man is lost.
  5. Why was Esau weeping, it was simply because of the following ‘curses’.
  • First, Jacob took away his blessings.
  • Second, Isaac made Jacob the Master of Esau or in another way Isaac declared that Esau would be a servant to Jacob.
  • Third, Isaac said Jacob would be the one out of the two brothers that would become prosperous
  1. This was too much for Esau to bear, and he pleaded with his father to give him just one blessing- Genesis 27 vs 38.
  2. Rather than blessed Esau, Isaac made the matter worst, by issuing four additional curses, the fourth being a reinforcement of an earlier curse.
  • The fourth curse placed upon Esau was that he would live in a dry, unproductive and unprofitable land away from the richness of the earth- Genesis 27 vs 39.
  • The fifth curse on Esau was than even the heavens would refuse to favour him, as he would live away from the dew of the heaven above- Genesis 27 vs 39.
  • The sixth curse on Esau was that he would not achieve anything easily. He would need to struggle and fight before he could achieve anything. Grace, mercy and favour were not his portion. Unless he decided to be violent and aggressive, he would not achieve anything in life- Genesis 27 vs 40: You will live by your sword.
  • The seventh curse on Esau was that in spite of all his struggles and hard work, he would still live as a slave to his   younger brother- Genesis 27 vs 40: and you will serve your brother.
  1. Isaac ended these curses by giving Esau a little space to maneuver, a little grace to change his fortunes, and a little condition that may redeem him from this fatherly curses. Genesis 27 vs 40: But when you decide to break free, you will shake his yoke from your neck.” 
  2. What does this mean? It means that Esau could decide to break these seven curses, anytime, every right there and then when Isaac was pronouncing it.
  3. It means Esau could decide to break the yoke of slavery and oppression. It means Esau had the power to throw away the burden of his brother Jacob. It means the story of Esau would change for good, ‘when’ anytime he says enough is enough. It means the oppression, servitude, failures, and stagnancy of Esau would come to an end ‘when’ he becomes tired of his position.
  4. The most important question we need to ask here is that what did Esau need to do to realize the prophecy of Genesis 27 vs 40: But when you decide to break free, you will shake his yoke from your neck?
  5. The answer could be found in Genesis 27 vs 40:  You will live by your sword.  Esau’s slavery would come to an end immediately he used his sword to break free….shake his yoke from your neck-Genesis 27 vs 40.
  6. In one breath, Isaac placed seven curses on Esau his first born; in another breath, he gave him the sword to break the curses.
  7. In one breath, Isaac made his younger son, Jacob, the master of his firstborn- Esau. In another breath, he gave Esau a sword to throw off the lordship of Jacob, and reclaim his position and blessing as the first born, whenever he is tired of serving his younger brother
  8. In one breath, Isaac pronounced Esau the slave of Jacob. In another breath, he gave Esau the sword to fight and defeat his brother and throw off his oppression.
  9. Herein  lies the secret key to the prosperity and future of Esau, he needed to fight with the sword to deliver himself from family and ancestral curses. What happened in later years?
  10. Did he serve his younger brother throughout his life, as he was cursed? No he didn’t.
  11. Did he lived lamenting the curses placed in him? No, he didn’t
  12. Did Esau took Isaac’s advice? Yes he did
  13. Did he used to sword to break free….shake his yoke from your neck-Genesis 27 vs 40.  Yes, he did
  14. Did he change his history by fighting to repossess his birthright? Yes, he did.

Genesis 32 vs -37:Then Jacob sent messengers ahead to his brother, Esau, who was living in the region of Seir in the land of Edom. He told them, “Give this message to my master Esau: ‘Humble greetings from your servant Jacob. Until now I have been living with Uncle Laban, and now I own cattle, donkeys, flocks of sheep and goats, and many servants, both men and women. I have sent these messengers to inform my lord of my coming, hoping that you will be friendly to me.’”

After delivering the message, the messengers returned to Jacob and reported, “We met your brother, Esau, and he is already on his way to meet you—with an army of 400 men!” Jacob was terrified at the news. 

  1. The above passage shows clearly that Esau changed his misfortune by the sword. Twenty one years later, Jacob who had fled away from the anger of his brother, decided to return to his father’s house. Jacob was coming back a prosperous man, and announced his arrival by the many cattle, donkeys, flocks of sheep, and goats he owned. Probably he still thought his brother was still languishing under the ‘curses’ of Isaac. He sent gifts to his brother, but alas he was ‘terrified’ to learn that his brother Esau, was also very prosperous, had an army of 400 men who were his Personal guards and Assistants!

Genesis 33: Then Jacob looked up and saw Esau coming with his 400 men. So he divided the children among Leah, Rachel, and his two servant wives. He put the servant wives and their children at the front, Leah and her children next, and Rachel and Joseph last. Then Jacob went on ahead. As he approached his brother, he bowed to the ground seven times before him.

  1. This was not the end of the story. Isaac cursed Esau that he would serve his younger brother. But, Esau reversed this curse. Otherwise, when Jacob came back, he would have met Esau in poverty, Esau would have been pleased to accept Jacob’s gift. On Jacob’s return, Esau had broken the yoke of servitude, and Jacob met a prosperous man. As a matter of fact, Jacob bowed down to Esau (who was supposed to be his servant) seven times! This is symbolically prophetic. Isaac had cursed Esau seven times, making Jacob the lord of Esau. Now, we see Jacob bowing down for Esau on the ground seven times. Each of these bowing down, broke the curse of lordship of Jacob over Esau.
  2. Are you presently discouraged, disillusioned, angry, confused, depressed, hopeless, dejected, and sad just like Esau in Genesis 27 vs 38 when his blessings were stolen? Then you can learn several lessons  from this scriptures.
  3. Stop lamenting about your situation and past losses.
  4. Stop weeping and crying about your stolen blessings.
  5. Don’t be bothered if your peers have overtaken you. Pursue, overtake and recover all.
  6. Curses can be broken.
  7. Any spoken word contrary to the word of God in your life shall not stand.
  8. Ancestral, generational, and family curses are still operating in your life because you have refused to break them.
  9. You need to reverse every evil family pattern in your life.
  10. You need a sword of heaven to fight the battles of your life.
  11. Unless you fight like Esau against your contrary situation, you cannot win. Unless you fight you cannot recover. Unless you fight, you cannot reclaim your lost glory.
  12. You have a sword in your hand, which is the word of God. Use it to fight in prayers and fasting to regain your glory.
  13. If you fight, the terror of God shall fall upon your adversaries.
  14. If you fight, those who stole your glory shall fall before you in Jesus name
  15. Those who ran away with your glory shall come back falling before you.
  16. Esau broke the curses over his head, you took can break every evil situation in your life.
  17. Esau threw off the burden of his brother, you too should rise up and throw off every burden of slavery.
  18. Esau broke the yoke of Jacob on his blessings, you too can fight and break every evil stronghold on your life, and reclaim your glory.
  19. Esau’s glory was stolen, but instead of lamenting over his loses, he asked for a new glory. You need to ask for a new glory this year in Jesus name.
  20. Esau recover his stolen glory. Forget your past failures, you need to fight and recover your glory this year.
  21. You need to pray right now like this: O God of Israel, give me a new glory this year in Jesus name.
