Prayer For Deliverance



“O Lord, oppose those who oppose me. Fight those who fight against me. Put on Your armor, and take up Your shield. Prepare for battle, and come to my aid. Lift up Your spear and javelin against those who pursue me.Let me hear you say, “I will give you victory!”

Bring shame and disgrace on those trying to kill me; turn them back and humiliate those who want to harm me.

Blow them away like chaff in the wind- a wind sent by the angel of the Lord. Make their path dark and slippery, with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.

Why you Need to Teach People about God



In the Book of Jonah, God sent Jonah to Nineveh to preach to the people about the dangers of not honoring Him and keeping His commandments.

Jonah instead of going to Nineveh ran away in the opposite direction to Tarshish.

While in the ship going to Tarshish, the ship encountered great turbulence due to harsh storm that took over the sea.

The sailors later discovered that Jonah was responsible for this turbulence and storm on the sea.

Murmuring and Complaining



Many of us murmur and complain too much and too often.

Instead of thanking God for our situations we would stay and grumble and complain all the much that we can.

God hates our complaining and grumbling. He is displeased with our continuous ingratitude.

In Exodus He punished the Israelites severally for their complaining and grumbling in the wilderness and they spent 40 years traveling for a journey that should last only 40 days. How awesome!

In the book of Jonah 3 and 4. After Jonah had preached to the people of Nineveh and they repented, God decided not to punish and destroy them has He initially planned to.

God's judgment against the rich oppressors



Many rich and wealthy people are wicked and insincere in their dealings with people particularly the poor and needy.

I have seen neighbors that just because they bought a second-hand car become very arrogant to the extent that they oppress their other neighbors who have no car.

The bible has this to say about such people, “What sorrow awaits you who lie awake at night, thinking up evil plans. You rise at dawn and hurry to carry them out, simply because you have the power to do so” Micah 2:1



Reward of Pride (Ezekiel 28:2B)


God's Warning For People who Patronize False Prophets



“Don’t say such things”, the people respond. “Don’t prophesy like that. Such disaster will never come our way!”

When you preach the true word of God to them, telling them the curses of God on prostitutes, God’s judgment on wicked people, murderers and other sinners, they will tell you that it is not true, that such cannot happen to them even though they continue in their evil ways and deeds.

God is asking, “Should you take talk that way, family of Israel? Will the Lord’s Spirit have patience with such behavior? If you would do what is right, you would find my words comforting” Micah 2:7


God's warning about False Prophets

Judgment For The Wicked Leaders



You wicked leaders the only time you remember God is when you are seeking elections into political offices. Then, you run after men of God seeking their prayers to God to help you win.

The truth is that an anointed man of God can pray for anyone and they will receive answer from God what he asks for, but what will sustain that blessing is you keeping the commandments of God. Obeying His instructions and doing what is right.

God says, “Listen you leaders of Israel! (Nigerian leaders) you are supposed to know right from wrong, but you are the very ones who hate good and love evil. You skin my people alive and tear the flesh from their bones” Micah 3: 1-2

Message For The False Prophets



This is what the Lord says: “you false prophets are leading my people astray! You promise peace for those who give you food, but you declare war on those who refuse to feed you” Micah 3:5

Yes you Nigerian pastors are leading the people astray, you confuse the people with your false prophesy, they are not following God’s commandment because of your vague promises you make to them.

Have you noticed that anywhere in the bible where God is warning leaders, He also warns the pastors and false prophets? Sometimes I wonder if these pastors and Bible researchers notice this parts of the bible at all or if they do and just ignore it.

Why a Woman Should Not Disrespect Her Husband

“Listen to me, you fat cows living in Samaria, you women who oppress the poor and crush the needy, and who are always calling to your husbands, “Bring us another drink!” The Sovereign Lord has sworn this by His holiness: “The time will come when you will be led away with hooks in your noses. Every last one of you will be dragged away like a fish on a hook!” Amos 4: 1-2 (NLT)


Why you Should Not Oppress the Poor and Needy



 
After oppressing the poor and crushing those in need, people still have the heart to go to the house of God to give offerings and offer sacrifices. Isn’t that a waste of precious time and resources?

Okay, you want to know if it is a waste of time or not, then read Amos 4: 4-5 (NLT)

“Go ahead and offer sacrifices at Gilgal (at your church, your places of worship). Offer sacrifices each morning and bring your tithes every three days- present your bread made with yeast as an offering of thanksgiving. Then give your extra voluntary offerings so you can brag about it everywhere! This is the kind of thing you Israelites (you Christians) love to do, “says the Sovereign Lord”

What will Happen to the unrepentant Sinner



“I brought hunger to every city and famine to every town. But still you would not return to me” says the Lord. “I kept the rain from falling when your crops needed it most. I sent rain on one town but withheld it from another. Rain fall on one field, while another field withered away. People staggered from town to town looking for water, but there was never enough. But still you would not return to me,” Says the Lord. Amos 4:6-8 (NLT)

Oh unrepentant sinner, murderers, jealous and envious neighbors, liars, cheats, prostitutes, how much more signs do you need from God for you to change from your sinful ways of life. He said He has punished you with disease, set-backs, and many bad things of life but you would not change.

Amos 4:9 (NLT), “I struck your farms and vineyards with blight mildew. Locusts devoured all your figs and olive trees (your houses burnt, your cars had accident, you lost your jobs), but still you would not return to me” says the Lord. (With all of these punishments and disasters that the Lord has brought upon you, you still refuse to be repentant, you refuse to acknowledge the Almighty God”
