The Wickedness of the Wicked

Posted: May 10, 2015 at 5:02 am   /   by   /   comments (0)

The Psalmist was fed up about the degree of wickedness in the world. That was why he was pleading for God to do something before it will be too late. Psalm 7: 9 says “Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just; for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.”

Brethren, innumerable evils have swallowed the world. What can bail one out is the power of the living God and holiness. You cannot serve God with Mammon. Let us take our stand in the righteous God and flee from every appearance of sin. When you are free from sin and you are sure of your  salvation, then don’t relent, pursue sanctification, that is a state of total separation unto God. After this, allow Holy Spirit to reign in you daily, watching and praying.

Brethren, to forge ahead with the battle of life, you need to be properly empowered because Satan will never give up. That you have confessed your sins and decide to live rightly with God, you have committed a great offense with Satan and he doesn’t take apologies. Again, that you are loaded with glory and you are desperate for fulfillment, you have committed another great offense. He never wanted anybody to manifest glory. The language that Satan understands is violence. With your holiness and consistent warfare prayers, you are wearing ‘bullet proof garment’ in the realm of the spirit.

The world is full of afflictions. Several people are celebrating their birthday annually but they are not celebrating any commendable achievement. Labour has replaced favour in various homes. Many are suffering from failure at the edge of breakthrough. Several persons that were supposed to be employers of labour are roaming the street looking for jobs.

To every battle, there is a point of entry. No battle starts accidentally. The bible recorded in the book of Proverbs 14: 19 that, “The evil bow before the good and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.” You may begin to wonder what evil is looking for in the house of a good man. If he is a good man, then good things suppose to rally round him but the bible says no, evil bow before him. Not only that, the verse says the wicked is found at the gates of the righteous man. Brethren, this man is righteous but the wicked people gathered themselves together and begin to stay at his gates. They are found at his gate of prosperity; child-bearing; health; promotion among others. What are they doing at his gates? They are waiting to attack him as soon as he attempts to come out of the gate. I prophesy to your life this week, every enemy that stands at your gate to hurt you, fire of God will arise and consume them in Jesus name.

If you are not comfortable with this claim and you are wondering aloud if this is possible or not, follow me to read the book of Jeremiah 18: 18-23.

Verse 18 says “Then said they, ‘Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.

Who are these people that conspired against Jeremiah? What was his offense? They are the people he has labored for in prayers. His offense was because he was a righteous man. Don’t forget that the bible mentions ‘they,’ that means they are very many. The bible even said their leader gave an instruction, ‘Come’ and they came. He told them the time was ripe enough to devise devices against the anointed man of God.

If you are not ready to fight, you are ready to die. When Jeremiah discovered that if he wasted time, he would soon find himself in the grave dwelling in the midst of the slain prophets despite his righteousness and services, he changed his prayers.

Verses 21 and 22 quoted Jeremiah saying, “Therefore deliver up their children to the famine and pour out their blood by the force of the sword; and let their wives be bereaved of their children and be widows; and let their men be put to death; let their young men be slain by the sword in battle. Let a cry be heard from their houses, when thou shalt bring a troop suddenly upon them; for they have digged a pit to take me, and hid snares for my feet.”

From this account, we can gather that Jeremiah was shocked and disappointed that upon his care and closeness to these people, standing in the gap for them, their wives and children, they could turn back to plan evil against him. He began to imagine the level of cruelty in the land.

Have you forgotten what the scripture said in Deuteronomy 19: 21. “And thine eye shall not pity but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

If you are too gentle spiritually, then, you are taken a risk. Whosoever that has benefitted from your sweat, dined and wined with you, planning to destroy you, their arrow of destruction will backfire in Jesus name.

The enemy is no respecter of your title before they fire arrow against you. What they respect is your rank in the college of power. That you are a pastor does not stop them from attacking you. If you live a careless life, they can tamper with your destiny.

A pastor came to me few years ago for deliverance. He told me that he slept soundly at night but woke up with a deep hole at the centre of his head and mucus was oozing out from this spot repeatedly. But thank God he was delivered.

In Matthew 23: 30-32 said, “And say, if we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.” That means some prophets were killed with their prophecies. Please don’t join them so soon.

Don’t allow any witch or wizard to waste your life before you gather yourself together and defend your destiny with warfare prayers. Do you know that a witch may kill a glorious man, even a Christian in the morning and repent her sin in the afternoon? Will God not forgive her? But what happens to the person that she has killed? Can he come back to life? In fact, his eternity is not even guaranteed but do you know that if that repented witch takes her stand in the Lord, she may eventually reign with Jesus Christ?

I pray that God will strengthen you as you go out this week. You will pray through in Jesus name. My God will make you to be stronger than your enemy in Jesus name.

Let us pray:

Every evil arrow that the enemy prepared against my family, backfire in Jesus name.

Agent of darkness delegated to replace my joy with sadness, you are a liar; somersault and die.

Every evil device against my family, scatter by fire.

Evil trap set for me and my family, you will not catch me. Catch your owner in Jesus name.

By the grace of God, you will escape from your enemies to reign in Jesus name.
