TOPIC: Release Him!
Micah 3:5“Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.”
Truth is scarce. Many are ready to embrace error rather than accept the truth. We need to do a great deal of self-examination today so as to appreciate what awaits us after death, if we fail to live according to kingdom principles.
There was a medical doctor who died. When he died, his wife prayed that he should come alive again. She prayed for hours. Eventually, the man came back to life and narrated what he saw when he died. He saw himself arriving somewhere. In that place, somebody held him by the right hand, another person held him by the left hand; and they were dragging him away.
He first of all thought that they were dragging him to heaven, but as they dragged him along, he felt some heat on his face. He remembered the Bible and thought: If this place is heaven it would not have been hot and uncomfortable. Then, he began to appeal to them not to drag him further towards hell. He said he was born again, and that they should not drag him to hell fire. They did not listen. Then, they dragged him to the edge of hell fire.
He said people were being dumped into hell fire like a tipper lorry empties sand. He was amazed and suddenly, as they were about to throw him inside hell fire, a voice sounded from above, “Release him.” And they left him. Immediately they released him the devil came out and said, “O God, You have no right to take this man to heaven, because he is free from all sins apart from one, which is the idolatry of the heart.”
Beloved, he had only one sin. But many of us are committing many serious sins daily. God said. “Devil, you are right. I am not taking this man to heaven, because he is not qualified as you have said. But, at the same time, I will not allow him to go to hell fire now, because of his wife.” The importunate prayers of his wife compelled God to send him back to life.
Although that man was a Sunday School teacher and he taught the Bible very well, there was an idol hidden in him. Today, you must examine yourself.Get rid of every hidden idol.
Favour will wake up a mornach, a great man or a great woman, in the dead of the night, to consider your case.
Every blockage, against your destiny shall be scattered in the name of Jesus.
HYMN – All things bright and beautiful
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.
Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.
The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;
The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one;
The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows for our play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day;
He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.
