2 Samuel 22:38 I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.
Today we shall be looking into a crucial topic that affects our modern day Christianity. The Apostles of old gave a sleepless night to both the forces of darkness and their worshippers; sometime they went into the arena of the idol to destroy the altars and obstruct their evil activities. Nowadays the reverse is the case.
The Bible acknowledges that we are the soldiers of God; but it´s so disappointing that the soldiers are becoming a casualty in the hands of civilians. Those who supposed to be a fire brand for God are busy warming themselves inside the air condition of the world (enemy of God).
Six major pursuing power in Bible.
1.Sickness and calamities:- Deuteronomy 28:22¨The LORD will strike you with wasting disease, with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, with blight and mildew, which will plague you until you perish¨
2.Darkness:- Nahum 1:8 ¨But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies¨.
3.Curses:- Deuteronomy 28:45 ¨All these curses shall come upon you and pursue you and overtake you till you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of theLord your God, to keep his commandments and his statutes that he commanded you.¨
4.The enemy:- Exodus 15:9 ¨The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.¨
5.The avenger of blood:- Deuteronomy 19:6 ¨Lest the avenger of the blood pursue the slayer, while his heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and slay him; whereas he was not worthy of death, inasmuch as he hated him not in time past.¨ Assassin, manslaughters, those that kill either with mouth or falsehood witness.
6.Blood:- Ezekiel 35:6 ¨Therefore, as I live, saith the LordGod, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.¨ All those that involves in abortion the blood shall fight such person.
These powers had captured many souls and destiny just waiting for their execution time. Psalms 66:18 ¨If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me¨ you will wonder why the new convert prayers answer faster than a longtime born again brethren.Why? The Level of obedience to God will determine the speed to your breakthrough. Certain things get me wonder when I hear that people are being begged before they come to church, the child of the devil is threatening a child of God and he/she is begging, herbalist is still seeking for solution to the challenges facing a Christian.
Hosea 1:3:-Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him. The good things God had committed into your hands haven´t you abandoned it. Your zeal for soul winning, Intercession for the sick, giving to the orphanage, tithes & offering etc.
Lamentations 1:6:-And from the daughter of Zion all her beauty is departed: her princes are become like harts that find no pasture, and they are gone without strength before the pursuer¨ once you lost the good things God deposited in you, you are gone without strength before the pursuer.
What are the pursuing powers that has captured or dominating your life; is it anger, unforgiveness, pornography, backbiting, hatred, stealing, fornication etc. Beloved there is a way out for you today; Jesus is still willing to grant you the victory.
Psalms 18:37-45:- I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet. For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me. Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto theLord, but he answered them not.Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets. Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me. As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me. The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
