*THEME: WEALTH WILL CHANGE HANDS*

*MEMORISE*
He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
-Proverbs 28:8

*Bible Reading: Isaiah 61:1-6*
1 The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.

*MESSAGE*
Every time I make a pronouncement that wealth will change hands, my children in the Lord usually shout “Amen”, but I believe they don’t fully understand what I am saying. If they really understood, they would not need to say “Amen”, because I am only echoing the word of God that is already settled in heaven for ever (Psalm 119:89). Rather than say “Amen’, I would prefer that they act on the conditions that will bring this prophetic word of God to pass in their lives. If you are a child of God, I announce (not pray) that wealth will change hands for your favour, and your songs of “not enough” shall change to “more than enough” in Jesus’ Name. I am declaring this to you for your information and necessary action. In Isaiah 61:4-5, the Holy Spirit declares:

_“And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.”_

For this to happen, we must pay close attention to the mistakes of those from whose hands wealth will come into ours. Our memory verse reveals some of their mistakes. Because they increase and gather their wealth unjustly, God is saying that their wealth shall be taken away from them and be given to those who will pity the poor. If you are awaiting the transfer of wealth that is to come, are you ready to consider the poor and reach out to them with this wealth? If your answer is yes, I congratulate you because God’s word will be fulfilled in your life. Those who will receive the wealth of the wicked are those ready and willing to redistribute the commonwealth of the populace, stolen by greedy treasury looters and lying fallow in both local and foreign accounts. Isaiah 61:6 is food for thought for those who want to partake of the divine wealth transfer that is to come. It says:

_“But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.”_

In other words, to qualify for the fulfilment of God’s prophetic word on wealth transfer, your lifestyle must be in tandem with what He requires of His priests and ministers. Some of these requirements are that His ministers and priests should not indulge in strong drink (Titus 1:7, Proverbs 31:4-5, Isaiah 28:7), nor should they be married to more than one spouse (1Timothy 3:2). Do you measure up to His standards? With the little God has blessed you with, do you remember the poor? These are the pertinent questions you need to ask today. God bless you.

*PRAYER POINT:*
Father, I open my hands this day to receive the wealth of the ungodly for the purpose of expanding Your Kingdom.

*BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:*
1 Kings 11, Ezekiel 48:15-35

*AUTHOR:*
PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

*HYMN 1: THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSING*
1 There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Saviour above.

*Chorus:*
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy-drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

2 There shall be showers of blessing
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.

3 There shall be showers of blessing;
Send them upon us, O Lord!
Grant to us now a refreshing;
Come, and now honor Thy Word.

4 There shall be showers of blessing;
O that today they might fall,
Now as to God we’re confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!

5 There shall be showers of blessing,
If we but trust and obey;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
If we let God have His way.

[9/10, 6:23 AM] 919063: Today’s SOD – 2019-09-10
TOPIC: BELIEVING THE WORD OF GOD AND REJECTING THE LIES OF THE ENEMY

SCRIPTURE: In those days they shall say no more,”The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children’s teeth are set on edge. Jeremiah 31″:29

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Refusal is a force. 

Yesterday,”we saw one of the ways of deliverance from curses which was receiving the Word. Today we shall be looking at other ways of deliverance.  

1. Believing the Word of God. This is believing absolutely whatever God says and relying on Him totally for the fulfilment of His Word concerning your life and destiny. 

Beloved, it does not matter what the situation is, believe what God says and you will see it come to pass.

2. Living in the Reality of the Truth. What is the reality? The reality is, you owe the devil nothing, you were not there when the devil made a transaction with your father or forefathers, and so, you cannot bear the consequences of their iniquity (Jeremiah 31″:29). The reality is,”the blessing came before the curse. The reality is, you are the seed of Abraham, and if Abraham escaped the negativity of his father’s house, you have escaped too.

3. Reject the Lies of the Enemy

Beloved, take sides with the truth irrespective of the contrary evidence the devil is trying to show you. The truth is, from the days of John the Baptist till now, the kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent takes it by force (Matthew 11″:12).  So,”reject the lies of the enemy. Hebrew 11″:24 says that Moses refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. Refusal is a force; it made Moses escape,”and the destiny of the Egyptians could not be his destiny.

Remember this”: Refusal is a force.

ASSIGNMENT (S):

1. Always believe that you cannot be under any curse as a child of God.

2. Consciously reject every statement that is contrary to the Word of God concerning your life.

PRAYER: O Lord,”thank You for Your good plans for my life. I reject every pronouncement against my life and destiny by the Blood of Jesus. Only the counsel of God shall stand in my life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

[9/10, 6:23 AM] 919063: You can overcome your past!

Tuesday 10th September 2019

‘Jephthah…a mighty man…was the son of a harlot.’ Judges 11:1 NKJV

Sociologists tell us that human behaviour is largely determined by two things: our parents and our environment. Judging by that, they’d have written Jephthah off as a lost cause! But not God. His Word says, ‘Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing’ (Isaiah 43:18-19 NKJV). When Jesus becomes Lord of your life, neither genes nor environment can prevent you from becoming everything he intends you to be. Before his life was over, Jephthah became famous as Israel’s youngest governor, and is listed among the Bible heroes in Hebrews chapter 11. That’s because God is a turnaround specialist!

Maybe you were born in less-than-ideal circumstances, and you’re wondering if you can ever overcome them. The answer is yes! So the next time someone tries to use your past to put you down, remind them about Jephthah. The truth is, our God is awesome! He can lift the disadvantaged higher than those who have had every possible advantage. His strength is revealed and released in our weakness (see 2 Corinthians 12:9). He specialises in using those who have been rejected. He used Joseph, a man thrown into a pit by his brothers and written off by his father as dead. He used David, a shepherd boy alienated and ignored by his family. He used Jesus, ‘the stone the builders rejected’ (Psalm 118:22 NIV), who went on to become ‘the chief cornerstone’ (Luke 20:17 NKJV). And he can do the same for you.

So be encouraged; God has a plan for your life and as you spend time with him he will show you what it is.
