Ephphatha (Be opened)
“And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the Sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.” (Mark 7:31-35)
This prayer is for those whose ways to success are blocked. It is for people that experience delay. It is for those that have ill luck. It is for those that experience spirit of dishonour. It is for those who cannot marry. It is for those who cannot bear their own children. It is for people suffering from stagnation. It is for people suffering from hatred. It is for anyone finding life difficult. The person involved in this story was deaf and dumb. To be deaf is to be isolated from good things of life. The deaf cannot be communicated with. When success beckons, the deaf cannot see it. He is totally unaware of when to move in the direction of prosperity. The deaf may not be promoted at work. He does not stretch out his hands to receive blessings, because he cannot be told.
Similarly, the dumb cannot tell of what he feels. He is in obscurity because the world cannot appreciate his potentials. He knows how to generate wealth, but the opportunity to do so is not available to him. He cannot communicate his desires to those who will appreciate him. He is often misunderstood, since he is unable to express himself. Some people were born deaf and dumb, while some others contract them by accident. The concern of this message is the release of everyone that is deaf and dumb.
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36). Among the attributes of God is His capacity to do the impossible. Among the various impossibilities that became possible were THE PARTING OF THE RED SEA (Exo 14:21), THE SUSPENSION OF THE SUN AND THE MOON ON MOUNT GIBEON AND VALLEY OF AJALON (Joshua 10:12-14) and the various instances, when the dead rose.
(Exo 14:21), (Joshua 10:12-14)
The very God, Who set the dumb and deaf free, will set you free today.
• The children of Israel were in the captivity of Egyptians for four hundred years. God decided to set them free. This decision was communicated to Moses, whom God appointed to lead His people out of slavery. After visiting various plagues on the people of Egypt, God’s people were released. To ensure that the menace of Egyptian disappeared forever, God destroyed their army in the red sea, so Israel was set free forever. You are hereby set free.
• The Israelites were under the tyranny of Jabin, whose head of the army was Sisera, who had 900 chariots of war, but the people of Israel had none. God sent Barak with Deborah to mount Tabor, where the army of Sisera were discomfited and scattered. Sisera was killed by the nail that Jael rammed into his temple. Every reader of this message that is limited by the Devil will be set free.
• In the time of Gideon, the children of Israel were under terrible oppression of the Midianites and Amalekites. Gideon even thought that God has indeed abandoned the children of Israel. But the visiting angel told him to use his power to rescue Israel and himself. (Judges 6:14)
With the above authorities, I declare you free from Poverty, Hatred, Stagnation, Sickness both terminal and ordinary, Spirit of dishonour, generational and other curses, Marital challenges, lack of fruit of the womb and any other thing that makes life bitter.
