TOPIC: I Reject Evil Embargo (1)
Joshua 6:26: “And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.”
God is mighty to save and deliver. He is as close as you want Him to be to you.
I decree that the satanic embargo preventing good things from your life is lifted and destroyed today, in the name of Jesus.
PRAISE & WORSHIP
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
2 Kings 24:8-20; 2 Kings 25; Romans 1:18-32; Psalm 84:8 -12
1 And Jacob called his sons and said, “Gather together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the last days:
2 “Gather together and hear, you sons of Jacob,
And listen to Israel your father.
3 “Reuben, you are my firstborn,
My might and the beginning of my strength,
The excellency of dignity and the excellency of power.
4 Unstable as water, you shall not excel,
Because you went up to your father’s bed;
Then you defiled it—
He went up to my couch.

An evil embargo refers to a legal prohibition. It is a limitation placed on a person, place or thing. It is a demonic strategy used to prevent good things from reaching a person or thing. It is also an evil programming to stop or slow down a person’s progress. The enemy has successfully used evil embargo to destroy the lives and destinies of so many people.
As believers, we should not be ignorant of this device and weapon of the enemy. The Bible reveals different kinds of embargo. The first is called collective embargo. In 2 Kings 6:25, Samaria was besieged. That was another kind of collective embargo on all its populace. There was the case of a family with four daughters of marriageable ages, yet they could not get married.
There was another family of five daughters, they all got married at different times and returned within the first year to their father’s boys quarters one after the other. These ladies were victims of collective evil embargo. The second type of evil embargo is selective or individual embargo.

In this case, the enemy singles out just one person in a family or group and places an embargo on him or her. The third type of evil embargo is called financial embargo. If a victim of financial embargo invests in a business or venture that yields huge amount of money for other people, he or she will get small returns or may even suffer a loss.
In addition, opportunities that should yield profit or financial gains for the person will constantly pass him or her by. Reuben, the first born of Jacob, was a victim of evil embargo.
In Genesis 35:22, the Bible records that he slept with Bilhah, his father’s concubine. Jacob did not react until in Genesis 49, when he issued blessings on his sons before he died. Unlike other sons, he issued a curse on Reuben: “Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel.”
This curse became an evil embargo, destiny limitation and impediment that Reuben and his descendants carried for decades until the curse was broken by Moses (Deuteronomy 33:6).
