🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥

📜Exodus 33:21 “Then the LORD said, “Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the Rock.”
⛰Jesus Christ is the Rock. He’s the One who has prepared for us a place next to God. “And since I’m going away to prepare a place for you, I’ll come back again and welcome you into My presence, so that you may be where I am” John 14:3. He rose from the dead and took His position in heaven. “But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God.” Luke 22:69
🛋Victory is guaranteed for us who are in Christ since we rule from above. “The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” Psalm 110:1
⚖”And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6
🚞In summary, we departed from home (God’s presence) when we sinned. God created a train (salvation) to bring us back. Christ paid the price by booking a ticket for two (His and ours), went ahead of us to prepare a place and it’s now our responsibility, not only to accept the complimentary ticket but to begin to enjoy God’s presence immediately we do so, for as He is, so are we. “This is how Love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.” 1 John 4:17
🙏🏾Lord, where would I be if it were not for Your Blood? Thank You for saving me and empowering me instantly. I choose to abide in You all the days of my life, in Jesus Name, Amen.
Put On God’s Armor!
Yesterday morning I went into prayer and I had a vision. Kind of like a trance within a vision. Here goes:
My sisters and I were sitting in a certain living room that was L-shaped and very squeezed. The seats were old fashioned, not spongy but lots of wooden parts showing. There was a wall unit at the L interception and it had a small TV in it. We were getting ready to watch a movie which we were so eager to start. The TV’s reception was not colored but black and white. When the first scene of the movie came, I began feeling uncomfortable (This happens a lot when I’m about to travel in the Spirit. The physical becomes heavy) God began to whisper to me ‘Come I show you something’. I told God to take me up quickly (I’m always so excited when this happens because I know it’s an open portal).
I begin to pray in tongues and watch as my spirit man leaves my body and I begin to go up at lightening speed. All this time I was so excited because I knew we were going to the 3rd heaven and out of experience it’s the greatest place to be. But shock on me! We get to the 2nd heaven (outer space) and God leaves me there. I am still moving but not as fast. I could see the stars and the earth. Such a spectacular view that leaves you gazing with your mouth open. Then I spot this huge sharp arrow going towards earth at tremendous speed. Fear fills me up and I scream so loud! I hear two sharp clap-like noises as it tears into planet earth. Then I remember where we all are, watching a movie. I yearn to proceed with my journey to the 3rd heaven but I feel a need to go back and warn my sisters of the coming doom.
Immediately I am back into my body but now I’m in kneeling position (Remember this is still in the vision, not physical). I find all of us asleep deeply and snoring. My youngest sister has now moved from her single seat to the three seater I was occupying. Then the vision ends. (This is from 8.12 am to about 9.45 am)
Oh! What a wake up call to us, the bride of Christ. We’re in battle brethren. Take up your weapons of war and fervently advance this Kingdom of God. It is okay to watch a movie and very okay to sleep. In fact God gives sweet sleep to His beloved (Psalms 127:2). However, it is not okay to be caught unawares. There’s a time for everything (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8).
- Let’s not continue with business as usual.
- Let’s knock on heaven’s doors with prayer and supplication;
- Let’s stand in the gap on behalf of the world;
- Let’s be a voice of hope to the lost;
- Let’s be somewhere working for the Lord (representing the Kingdom everywhere we go and in everything we do);
Prayer: Lord, as we await Your return, may we not get too comfortable with life’s issues that we forget our purpose on earth. Help us to know the times and seasons that we are in. We yield to Your voice as you keenly lead us in our daily walk and assignments. In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
