The mighty in battle – Part 2
Beloved, God is the Almighty, the only One that can do all His pleasures. He is mighty to do all things, mighty to heal, mighty to save, mighty to bless and mighty to deliver. He is the Almighty God. So, whatsoever ugly situation you have found yourself, the Lord shall prove Himself in your life as the Almighty God.
Isaiah 63:1 says, “Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? This that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save?”I want to let you know that your problems are over. He created all things and He can use any of His creature to fight, whether human being or otherwise.
Jeremiah 51:20 “Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms; 21 And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider; and with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider; 22 With thee also will I break in pieces man and woman; and with thee will I break in pieces old and young; and with thee will I break in pieces the young man and the maid; 23 I will also break in pieces with thee the shepherd and his flock; and with thee will I break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen; and with thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers.”
He created all things and He uses them to fight. God uses angels to fight. When there is battle, He releases one angel and one angel can clear the whole world. If God can release one angel to a nation, that angel will clear that nation in a day. Anything can be an instrument of war in His hand.God will surely release His angels against your enemies. He will deal with them. Nothing can escape or defeat Him in battle. If God begins to fight somebody, everything will begin to work against that person, such that sleep will no longer be there AND peace will be taken away. I don’t know who might have risen against you. But whoever he might be, as long as God is with you, he can’t stand God because God will use everything to fight him.
Revelation 4:11 says, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”He uses everything at His will for nothing can resist or oppose Him. Examples abound in the Bible of when He fought Pharaoh who didn’t want His people to go after 430 years. For decades, Pharaoh did not want the Children of God to go and serve Him, but when God decided against Pharaoh, He fought him with all the elements of the world. Today, God has decided against your enemies, and they will neither have peace nor sleep.
Psalm 78:43-46 “How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan: And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink. He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them. He gave also their increase unto the caterpillar, and their labour unto the locust.”
God fought Pharaoh with blood, flog, flies, caterpillars, locust, darkness and blood. In fact, it got to a point God said to Pharaoh that enough was enough. If you don’t let my people, go I will kill your firstborn and it came to pass. Your enemy cannot fight God. Anything that is fighting you is fighting God and after today, they shall not survive. After dealing with your situation today, the whole world shall know that God has no challenger. I want to tell you that what you are going through is an ingredient of your testimony.
Our father in heaven cannot lose or be defeated in any battle, as He is the man of war, the God of battle, the only One mighty in battle and today, He is stepping into your situation, and victory is certain.
Exodus 15:3 “The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name.”Your enemies shall be buried in the Red Sea today. As the Lord fights for you, victory is assured. For the Egyptians you see today, you shall see them no more. I declare that the battle you see today, including the enemies and poverty, among others, you shall not see them again. Believe me, you will hear what will happen to them. That battle you have been fighting through the years, you and your family have always experienced opposition, and it has been sickness and trouble left, right, front and back, you will overcome. If there has been no success in anything you put your hands on and people hate you for nothing; you do good for people and they pay you back with evil, every time trouble moving object, sickness here and there. My friend, after today, the hatred is over, and you shall see them no more again. The battle is not yours but God’s. The Lord will fight for you and you shall hold your peace. At the end of this programme, angels shall go to fight for you. I don’t know who is fighting you, but God knows them. And because He knows them, He will locate them where they are; whether they are evil spirits or human being. No matter the battle involved, our God is equal to the task, because the battle is God’s and not yours. God has no limitation. He created all things visible and invisible, and He is on our side. He is the one mighty in battle and victory is sure.
Wonderful Work Of God: Life Made New
Vikings Confraternity Member Surrenders To Christ
MY name is Emmanuel (surname withheld). I am from Port Harcourt in Rivers State. With all glory to God, I want to share the goodness of God in delivering me from cultism. Before my repentance, I was a member of the dreaded cult known as Aro-Bagga (Vikings) for fifteen years, and rose through the ranks to become one of the leaders. As the fraternity’s chief striker, it was my duty to initiate members and kill enemies of the fraternity. And where I could not reach them, I would ask my boys to do it. I have travelled to different states to initiate and train members. In the course of doing this, I was rusticated from Akanu-Ibiam Polytechnic, where I was studying Business Administration. When I was there, children from rich homes were my targets, because they have the money to sponsor us. So, we would always get close to them, make friends with them and get them to become members.
On the day of our initiation, eight of us were taken into the bush, where they had already dug a grave of about 8ft to 10ft deep. The grave was meant for those that might not survive the initiation. We all came with the initiation materials, which include Squadron drink, cigarettes and cutlasses. After this, we were each beaten 99 times with cutlass. At the end of the day, only three of us survived. The other five died and were buried in that grave. We spent about five days in that forest before returning to the campus. While the initiation lasted, we were offered food but some of us could not eat because of the torture. It took me about three days after before I started eating.
This terrible treatment is usually meted out to new members to instil fear in them, so that whenever any assignment is given to them and they remembered the torture, they will not hesitate to go and kill the person, even if the person is their relative. I have gone to many institutions to carry out assignments for the fraternity. Sometimes, politicians would also hire us to do dirty jobs for them.
During an election in Kogi, we were invited to fight a political battle. We were in a particular community for about seven days, shooting and maiming, causing everybody to remain indoors. When we ran out of food, we killed animals and ate them raw. After the assignment, we moved into other criminal adventures. It was during one of those adventures that we ran into the Chosen people holding prayer meeting in preparation for their crusade. We decided to scatter their meeting. But all our efforts proved abortive, because the halogen light in the hall was too bright and for us to operate, we needed the place to be dark. So, we shot at the halogen bulbs, but the bulbs didn’t break. It was with that ferocious anger that we opened fire on the worshippers, but to our greatest surprise, nothing happened to them, no scratch of bullets was noticed, even the small baby with apron that was crawling inside the church was not harmed.
I tried to kill all, but my efforts were in vain, despite all the charms on me. At this juncture, I led the other members out of the premises. As we were leaving, we began to quarrel among ourselves on why we attacked worshippers. And suddenly, there was thunder and lightning, which continued threatening us until we reached our destination. From there, we travelled back to our base in Port Harcourt. From that day, I became apprehensive anytime I came across Chosen members.
Not long after I had this encounter with the Chosen that I developed epilepsy. For the past seven years, I have been suffering from this affliction. Everyday, I would fall at least three times from the attack of epilepsy. My mother took me to numerous churches for solution to no avail. We also went to several herbal homes, without result. I tried a particular herb sent from Ghana, yet it provided no solution. I bathed with dog blood three times, and drank its blood yet the affliction persisted. I visited one shrine after another, and did all the sacrifice and incantation and was placed on a special diet to no avail.
I used to extort money from market women, but had to refrain from such activities because of this affliction. Later, I met a woman who always wore the Chosen apron and who knew me when I was extorting money from market women. She asked why she had not been seeing me. Immediately, as I was about to explain to her, the epileptic attack came upon me. Three days after that incident, the woman asked me whether I had epilepsy. I said yes and that I had gone to several churches and places for solution to no avail. She told me there was a place she would refer me to. I asked where? And she said: ‘The Lord’s Chosen.’ Then she invited me to her church, but from that day, I began to avoid her, and even stopped going near her shop. But one day, she sent her son to my house to call me. When I got to her house, she assertively told me that if I went to Chosen, my epilepsy would be cured. A week after, she cooked a delicious meal and gave her son to bring to me. I couldn’t refuse such delicious food and after eating it, something happened to me. I couldn’t wait to honour her invitation to The Lord’s Chosen. Then one day, while coming to Lagos, the attack came upon me again in the bus. When I came round, one of the passengers asked me to thank one of the sisters in the bus, who prayed for us as we were about to embark on the journey because according to him, they were the ones that attended to me during the attack. After expressing my appreciation, the lady asked whether I had epilepsy. I said yes, that that was why I was travelling to Lagos to find solution. She then asked me where I was going in Lagos? I told her The Lord’s Chosen. Immediately, the sister became elated and said she was a Chosen, and that I would surely receive my healing there. Eventually, when we reached Lagos, she game me N1, 000.
As I alighted at Ijesha Bus Stop, and was about climbing the pedestrian bridge, the attack came again and I fell down. When I came round, I couldn’t find my bag and phone. The man that saw what happened said he thought I was drunk, which was why he didn’t react, when miscreants took away my bag and phone. When eventually I got to Chosen church on a Thursday morning during the counseling and deliverance service, the General Pastor was praying and in the course of the deliverance prayers, he said: “You young man with epilepsy, I cancel epilepsy for you and I cast that spirit out in Jesus name.” I shouted amen and didn’t know what happened again, until I saw myself in front of the pulpit vomiting. Lo and behold, after that day I never experienced epileptic attack again.I want to thank God for His mercy and healing of the disgraceful epilepsy.
