- Prophetical Promise for the Month of September, 2020
The promise for September is that God of Israel will be your rereward. This is an exciting promise to mediate throughout this month and long after and in this excerpt Pastor Paul Dawson reveals that this promise can be made sure only through the anointing. And he emphasizes that it is very essential that God gives us a revelation about the anointing. God will certainly protect us from the back if we do our job correctly. And what is our job? Read along to find out the job of every believer and how that moves God to fulfill His promises in your life. Isaiah 52:12 - For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rereward. The promise for the month is very interesting that the God of Israel will be your rereward, which means that the God of Israel will protect you from behind and that from the back,God will protect you as given in many translations. This month, maybe a lot of people will be hit from behind, so what is the meaning of being hit from behind? It means being hit when you are not aware of being hit and when you can do nothing. For example, when you are walking and suddenly a car or somebody hits you from the behind, you will not know what had happened till you get up from that damage. This makes this verse very important. Because all of us know that the virus is hitting us from the back and unemployment is hitting from the back for so many people. Suddenly they announce about the checking out of jobs and so many people are caught in a problem. That is the meaning of being hit behind the back. Being hit from the front means anyone can prepare themselves. You can see and you can resist. The promise very Cleary says the God of Israel will be your protection from the back. This is an amazing promise and this promise can be sure only through the anointing. That is why those who do not know the anointing will be going through tough days. Because if you do not know about the anointing you cannot receive the anointing. And if you don’t receive the anointing whatever should happen will happen. So it’s very essential that God gives us a revelation about the anointing. And we need to be thankful to God because he is telling us he is going to protect us from the back. Our job is to do what the Lord desires. We have to make sure that we are doing what the Lord desires, and God is focusing on eternity and our job is to make our calling and election sure. And anyone who does not make his calling and election sure, there is every chance for him to fall. We have to go all out to what is pleasing to the Lord. 2 Peter 1:13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; The job of the apostles was stirring up the minds of the people. They were not talking about financial breakthrough and healing. They were not even talking about protection. 1Peter 3:10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Peter was not against loving life and seeing good days. In the above verse we find him not saying let someone go for healing and deliverance meeting; let him go to this great prophet. Otherwise, he was talking about being a partaker of divine nature in order to see good days. There are so many people who are not experiencing the bible even after listening to so many teaching is because they are not making their calling and election sure. This is the main reason why people are not experiencing breakthrough in their lives. The problem is still we have not understood the word of God. We never understood what the apostles spoke. We need to be wise. Grace gives us a chance to repent and come in line with the plan of God. Luke 13:6-9 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down. It is the father God who is speaking. Father God says cut it down. But Lord Jesus says let it alone this year also. Grace gives a chance, it does not tell you to keep on doing what God doesn’t like. Which is never mentioned in the bible – maybe it is the human bible. It’s hard to believe how believers can get brainwashed with these wrong teachings. We need to go into the bible become a partaker of divine nature, otherwise, we may lose so many things and cannot guarantee what else that can take place. So God is telling you I’m going to protect you from behind. That is my job. But your job is to become a partaker of the divine nature; your job is to make you’re calling and election sure. If you don’t do your job – how will God do his job? If God doesn’t do his job it’s going to be a problem for you. We need to be 100 per cent sure. These last days will be days of great power. Daniel 11:32 But the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. God wants you to do exploits. When darkness and gross darkness covers, you will do miracles. Get ready to get the word of God fulfilled. And nobody should be left behind. We can easily find out whether we are going to be left behind or not through our life itself. From the way God is moving in our lives itself is a sign. We can find our status through the way God is moving in our lives. We should make sure that we don’t come under the many, which will come and argue with God that we were in your presence. God wants you to be blessed. #promiseofthemonth #september #promise #prophetical #rereward #glory #rearward #protection #covid #exploits #miracles #pauldawson #lightofeternity
- God's Two Witnesses
We are living in the end times. These are perilous times and it is highly important that we prepare ourselves. Our God is love impersonified, that is why he has already revealed all that is to come in his Word, well ahead of time so that we are not caught unawares. He wants his children to escape the days of tribulation and hence he has revealed how terrible it is going to be as a warning, so that we will toil to be with him in eternity, without seeing the days of tribulation. In every revelation about the future, we would be able to see God’s immense wisdom. It also shows that God is in complete control of everything in this earth and in the heavens. If you would like to get a sneak peek into the wisdom of God and how he has planned and executed everything from the beginning of time, then you should listen to this message. We are in the last days and God has revealed the future to his children through his word. This message is a warning for God’s children to be prepared. Revelation 11: 3 - And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. God says, I will give power. If you notice, it is in future tense. It has not yet been given but it will be given in the future. What will be given? Power. To whom will the power be given? To the two witnesses of God. We need to understand that two witnesses of God will appear in this world suddenly. God calls them as “My witnesses”. Always God gives power to those whom he calls as “His own”. What is the job of these two witnesses of God? They shall prophesy and testify. In Revelation 11: 7 we see that they will testify. They are very amazing prophets because it is mentioned that they will prophesy for 1260 days, which adds up to 3.5 years. What is their attire when they prophesy on earth? The Bible says that they will be clothed in sackcloth. Revelation 11: 3 - And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. This infers that the content of their prophecy is not going to be pleasant to our ears. As we all know, whenever people are clothed in sackcloth, the situation always pertains to crying, mourning and lamentation. Revelation 11: 5 - And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. This is going to happen when the time comes. God reveals the plight of the people who would try to hurt them. Who are these prophets? Revelation 11: 4 - These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. We know that murdering or killing someone is prohibited in the Ten Commandments. In Ephesians, we see that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood. Contradicting all these, we see in this case that if any man tries to hurt them or kill them, he will be killed. They don't need any assistance in killing their enemies. Fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. Many modern teachings reveal that the fire would be an AK47 that they would be armed with. However, it is not true. Just as the Bible says, they will have the power to produce fire from their mouth. Such is the kind of self defence given to them. What happens when the government tries to hurt them? They are rendered powerless before them, therefore they cannot do anything. This proves that God is in absolute control. Man with all the advanced technology and even nuclear bombs cannot prevail against these two witnesses. They even have the power to shut heaven and stop rain. Revelation 11: 6 - These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. If we look into it deeply and think who dealt with fire, we will understand that it was Elijah. Elijah was the prophet who had power to bring down fire from heaven and he even stopped rain. James 5: 17 - Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. Revelation 11: 6 - These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. Here also we see that heavens would be shut for the 1260 days when these prophets will be prophesying. There will be no rain for 3.5 years since these prophets would have the authority to shut the heavens. God can give his power to anyone. They will also have the power to turn water into blood and release all sorts of plagues upon the earth. People will be terrified at them because they will be empowered by God. Similarly, Jesus could not be arrested or harmed in any way when he scrambled all the shops in the synagogue. Twice he did it but they couldn't even touch him. Why? God is in control. He can do what he wants to, on planet earth. These two prophets will have the power to smite the earth with any kind of plagues upon the people of the earth and to change the water into blood. What opinion will the people of the earth have about these two prophets? Revelation 11: 10 - Because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. This statement reveals that their power was not just confined to Israel, but to all or many nations. Exodus 7: 20 - And Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. Exodus 9: 14 - For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth. It is similar to what happened during the time of Moses. During the time of Moses, these incidents happened only when needed, however, during the time of these two prophets, it would be continuous for 3.5 years. Just the two of them against the whole earth and none could touch them for 3.5 years. None of us should be on earth during this time of torment. They were just two in number, and did not have any followers or bodyguards, but still no one could touch them. Revelation 11: 7 - And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. Once they are done with their testimony, the beast who ascends from the bottomless pit will war against them and kill them. It's impossible for a man to die twice. According to the Bible, two people did not die from the Biblical times. They were Enoch and Elijah. According to the Bible, it is appointed for man to die once. Even Jesus Christ died when he came as a man to earth. After their ministry is completed only, the beast will be given power to war against them. After the completion of the 1260 days only they could be killed. Jesus Christ also ministered on earth for 3.5 years. Revelation 11: 8, 9 - And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. This is very interesting because, when the Apostle John wrote this Book, there was no television or Aeroplane or any such technology. There is no way, all the people of the earth could see something like this. Now it is feasible because of the inventions. Whichever channel people turn to, this would be the News, enabling all the people of the earth to witness it. This could be the reason why God enabled the invention of Television, satellites etc. Once they are killed all the people of the earth will rejoice and would not bury them but would prefer to see their body decay on the streets itself. Revelation 11: 10 - And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. God will not allow their bodies to be buried. Here again God is in complete control. He will make the people to fulfil his plan without even realising it. Revelation 11: 11 - And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. After 3.5 days, the Spirit of life from God will enter them and they will come back to life. This also will be witnessed by all the people of the earth. They will be terrified. Revelation 11: 12 - And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. Then there will be a voice from heaven asking them to come up and they will ascend into heaven, with their enemies watching. They will ascend the same way as Jesus did post resurrection. All this proves that God is in absolute control. In the past, he allowed the people of Sodom and Gomorrah to do as they liked. Even today, people behave as they like, and God is quiet about it. Just because God is quiet, it doesn't mean that he approves what you do. He never approves anything that is wrong. That's why we need to understand what God approves. Just because nothing serious happened to you, don't think that God approves of all your wrong doings. It would be a costly mistake, don’t take chances. We need to understand what our God approves. God moves according to his wisdom and understanding. Who is the God you serve? Job 9: 10 - Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number. Job 5: 9 - Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number: If you are wise, you will learn what God approves and the things that please him. Aren’t you supposed to be in peace with such a great God? Well think about it and act wisely. The highlights of today’s message are; God is in complete control, He allows people to live and act as they like, although he is in control. He does it with a plan and a purpose. We live only once, so do not waste your time. Time once gone never comes back. Therefore redeem the time and be blessed. God bless you. #godstwowitnesses #twowitness #witness #endofdays #lastdays #elijah #moses #antichrist #jesus #endtimes
- God's will and Corona
New Normal Series God created a perfect world filled with his goodness, according to his will. Why did God create everything? He created everything for his purpose. God intended man’s life to be abundant and without any lack. However, the current situation does not imply this reality. Today’s world is full of troubles, sickness, lack and chaos. Though this is the case, God’s children have His promises to help them escape the troubles of this world. Why then, are God’s children suffering the same way as others do? Do the promises in the Word of God still hold good for his children? Well, God is the same, yesterday, today and forever. His Word has the same power, as it did, ages ago. He who has promised is faithful and just to fulfill it. Then where is the disconnect? Where are we going wrong that all the promises are not fulfilled in our lives? Just like how a pilot needs to learn how to fly his plane using the manual, and also the Do’s and the Dont’s, we need to know how to make the promises of God work for us from the Word of God. The will of God concerning you, is that you prosper, be in health, and not lack any good thing. That's what God has promised you, but to inherit these promises, you need to do something. What you are expected to do is coupled along with these promises. Most of us ignore this part. Now would you like to know how to identify them? Listen to this message in which the man of God has rightly divided the promises and presented them, so that you can identify what is expected of you and fulfill them. As a result, you can inherit the promises of God and stay blessed. God created this world. Why did God make everything? Proverbs 16:4 The Lord hath made all things for himself: Ephesians 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: Who is our God? Our God is the one who makes everything work according to his own plan. You need to understand who our God is. He does not work to fulfill your plan but his will. According to his plan, He determined that he would create man and give him his own will-power. It was God’s plan, that man should have his own will power and that he should use it to decide what he is supposed to do in this world. However, if man’s will contradicts the plan of God, then he will not have the Power of God working in his favour. Hence, man should be very careful to find the will of God and align himself to it. That is when he can be assured of the Power of God working in his favour. In today’s scenario, we see that the coronavirus is spreading to many nations throughout the world and victimising as many people as possible. It is attacking the righteous and the wicked. It is weakening the defense system of the body and killing many people. An invisible war is on. Is it the plan of God that man should be attacked and overpowered by the coronavirus? Let us analyse, what the will of God is, for a believer concerning the Coronavirus situation. It is spreading quickly and people are caught unawares. It looks so powerful. Do not stick to what you know but analyse and understand what the scripture says in this regard. You need to be careful that tradition does not block the real understanding of the Word of God. You need to be very clear about the will of God, otherwise you cannot have the faith to make the right moves. What does the Scripture say? Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. What is the name of your God? I am the Lord that healeth thee. The Hebrew name, Jehovah Rapha has been derived from this verse. God says that he would not allow any of the diseases that he sent upon the Egyptians to come upon you. Most people just refer to this portion of the scripture, which says - He is Jehovah Rapha, and He will not allow any of the diseases of the Egyptians to come upon me. You are an Israelite. Do you want to know how? We all know that Israelites are the seed of Abraham. Galatians 3: 29, And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. According to the verse, they that are Christ’s are the seed of Abraham. What a privilege it is to know that God will not allow any of the diseases of the Egyptians to come upon us. How comforting it is to hear this promise of God? God is our healer. We are so happy and content with the later part of the verse. However, many fail to understand that the promise mentioned in the later part of the verse, applies only to those who fulfil the first part of the verse. Here, God expresses His two desires or will. God desires that you should diligently hearken unto his voice and observe to do all His commandments. God desires that you should not suffer any of the diseases that came upon the Egyptians, for He is the Lord that healeth thee. However, the second part is interlinked with the first part. It would result from you, fulfilling the first part. It is you who should fulfill the first part. If you implement the first part, then God will ensure that He does His part. You do your bit and then God will fulfil his promise. First part, which is “If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes,” is your role, something that you need to do. The second part of the verse (I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.) being the will of God, makes it pretty clear that it is not the will of God for Coronavirus to affect the children of God. When does the second part come into action? When you do the first part without any deviation. If you live your life casually, without understanding the first part, and then expect the second part to come to effect, it is not going to happen. You have to be very careful and you need real faith. We are not dealing with something ordinary, but something highly dangerous. Within two and a half months, over 2.3 million people have been affected. You need to have strong faith. This is not just to deal with the Coronavirus, but also the after effects of the Coronavirus, like layoffs, economic recession etc. You should not be affected by all this. Let’s see what the Word of God says about it. Deuteronomy 4:40 Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever. This verse clearly expresses God’s heart for you and your children. He doesn't want you and your children to be affected by the Coronavirus and its after effects. He doesn't want you to be hit by economic problems. Even in Deuteronomy 4: 40, we see that the first part of the verse needs to be understood and fulfilled by us to inherit the second part of the verse. Today, many selectively choose only the second part of the verse and ignore the first part, which is very important. Let’s see another verse, Deuteronomy 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! In this verse too we find two desires of God. God wants you to have a heart which fears the Lord and keeps his commandments always. God wants it to be well with you and with your children always. Here too it is evident that the fulfillment of the second desire of God is purely dependent on you keeping the first desire. You need to first have a heart that fears God and keeps his commandments always. Then the Lord will make sure it is well with you and your children. It is very critical that we do our part without any deviation because it results in supernatural protection. Let us see some more examples on these lines. Psalm 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. Here is God’s will for you, which says no evil shall befall you, neither shall Coronavirus or any other plague come near your dwelling. God’s power is working to fulfill his will. Many of us take this part for granted, however, we need to understand that this is the second part of the will of God. The first part, which is our responsibility, is found in the previous verse. Psalm 91:9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; We need to ensure that we make the Lord our refuge and the the most High God our habitation. When we do our part, God will engage his angels to fulfill his second will, which is divine protection from all evil. Therefore, we can relax. Malachi 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. God says that the Sun of righteousness will rise upon you with healing in his wings. Can Coronavirus or any other plague attack a person dwelling under the wings of the Sun of righteousness? However, this happens to be the second will of God in this case and there is a predecessor to it. The first will or desire of God in this case, is that you fear his name. When you fear his name, then the sun of righteousness will rise upon you with healing in his wings. You cannot change God’s nature - He is Jehovah Rapha Now let's look at similar instances in the New testament. John 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. Here we see that Jesus healed a person who had an infirmity for thirty eight years. Jesus had a message for him, but did not convey it immediately. We see that Jesus found him in the temple later, and said to him something very important, which will ensure that his healing will be permanent. Jesus told him firmly, do not sin any further, otherwise a worse thing will come upon you. It was Grace speaking to the man. He desired that the man who received his healing should maintain it. That is why Jesus found him and conveyed the important message. It is a serious warning that Jesus gave the man who was healed. Here again two desires of Jesus are evident. God desires that the man who was impotent for thirty eight years be healed and that the healing is permanent. God does not want the man to sin anymore. The healing would be permanent only if he fulfills this desire of God. Grace always counsels us. We need to keep ourselves from sins. 1 John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. Here again, we see two things, Whosoever is born of God sinneth not, but keeps himself from sin. The wicked one cannot touch the person who is born of God and does not sin. On the contrary if a person who is born of God does not keep himself and continues in sin, then the wicked one will touch him. To deal with the current Coronavirus situation, you need to have an unshakable faith which comes from a proper understanding of the undiluted Word of God. We can substitute the current situation and get a better understanding. He that is born of God sinneth not and the wicked Coronavirus toucheth him not. First, you have to keep yourself from sin, and then God will ensure that the wicked one does not touch you. Finally, lets analyse one more verse, 3 John 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. What is the will of God here? Beloved, I wish that you prosper and be in health, which infers, that you should prosper and be free from Coronavirus. Your soul should prosper. Your soul prospering, is your duty, and when you fulfill that, God will ensure that you prosper and be in health. Now you are clear about God’s will for you. You should prosper and be in health. Your children should also be blessed. The sun of righteousness shall rise upon you with healing in his wings. You will grow like calves of the stall. It shall be well with you and with your children forever. This implies that God does not want you to be affected by Coronavirus. However, for all these to be fulfilled, you need to ensure that you fulfill your part of God’s desire. You need to ensure that your soul prospers. Only when this condition is fulfilled, will you prosper and be in health. He that is born of God sinneth not and that wicked one, the Coronavirus will not touch him or his children. Let's be thankful for the unfailing love of God. Let us therefore be mindful to keep up with our part of God’s desire, so that God will keep his promise for us. #safety #covid19 #coronavirus #preservation #wellbeing #children #soulprosperity #health #healing #promises
