John 10:10 (KJV)
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
1 John 3:8b, A single manifestation of Jesus can destroy all the agenda of the enemy over your life. John 10:10, Anytime the devil comes, he kills, steals and destroys all together, the devil has three(3) agenda.
The works of the enemy is liken unto stealing, killing and destroying, but the Bible says ‘but I have come to give life’, meaning that where there is life, the devil cannot actualize his agenda, so if you experience loss, death and destruction, it is prove of the bankruptcy of the life of God because where ever the life of God is, the agenda of the devil cannot prevail.
John 11, put your right hand on your head and say ‘Jesus come into my life'(mention the area of your life the devil has stolen from you and invite the life of Jesus).
By the scripture the Bible is saying that the solution for death, stealing, destruction is life. But what kind of life are we talking about? John 10:18, a life that cannot be killed, kidnapped, or even buried, no man can take that life away from you if it is given to you, Jesus laid down His life to give you the life. He (Jesus) said, ‘I am come’, meaning it’s only when He comes that He can give it to you, anywhere Jesus has not entered, there is no life, Luke 7:17.
Whether you are prepared or not, if your life collide with Jesus, His life will enter you.
Father, come into my destiny, come into my family.
Anything the devil has stolen from you, if you bring life, the devil will return it. Jesus said that He has come to give us life ABUNDANTLY, meaning, the life He gives is excess, In abundance, a life that lasts from generation to generations, life that outlives sickness, poverty, barrenness.
Father, give me your life, I want your life, I want your abundant Life!
How can I defeat the works of the enemy
John 6:63, the problem is that we have MEMORIZED SCRIPTURES and run out of REVELATION, and what the scripture is saying is that only the words you speak born out of revelation brings life. Do not just think, speak! The Shunammite woman spoke out, when Jesus got to the tomb of Lazarus, He spoke!
The enemy is destroying what you have not spoken about, God created the heavens and the earth by spoken words not imagination (stop imagining Scriptures, speak Scriptures). Communicate life by words.
Whatever area the enemy has stolen from you, open your mouth and speak life to it.
Deuteronomy 30:12, Revelation 3:20, if you don’t open up your heart Jesus cannot enter to give you His life. You have to accept it. The life that Jesus came to give us, is not long life but eternal life, a life far above the reach of the enemy.
And He gives the life to those that are burdened, persecuted, afflicted and He is knocking, waiting for you to open up. The absence of Christ is the presence of Judgement.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Almighty God, I come before your presence with sincerity of heart asking for your mercy, I am very sorry for any life of sin, for every life of compromise, please forgive me, come into my life, be my personal Lord and savior, wash me clean with your blood, help me to live a Holy life, I need your help, thank you Lord for this opportunity, by your grace and mercy, I will not fail you, thank you Lord, in Jesus name amen!
