The Lord says, Hand Off!
As I was praying, I heard God say these words, “Hands off!”
It is so sad that folks are so consumed with pride, they can not see they are treading upon dangerous ground, and they don’t even recognize it!
Just as Hamon was when he decided to kill ALL the Jews! And Haman told Zeresh his wife and all his friends every thing that had befallen him, (His side of the story). Then said his wise men and Zeresh his wife unto him, If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt NOT prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him, (Esther 6:14 KJV).
You need to tell your enemies on today, GOD HAS PREPARED A TABLE FOR YOU (in your presence) THAT THEY WANT EVER FOR GET!!! And while they were yet talking with him, came the king’s chamberlains, and hasted to bring Haman unto the banquet that Esther had prepared, (Esther 6:13-14). What Haman didn’t know was that God ALWAYS has a way of an escape for the righteous!
For, I hear God saying, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord,” (Isaiah 54:17 KJV). I hear him saying, hands off, I got this!
And the king said again unto Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition, (God is asking you what is it?) Queen Esther, and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? And it shall be performed, even to the half of the kingdom. Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favour in thy sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request: For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king’s damage. Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, Who is he, and where is he, that durst presume in his heart to do so? (Esther 7:2-5 KJV).
My God my God, God will fight for his own and his hears are open unto prayers and the cries of the righteous! Come on Lord Jesus! God cares for you!!
You see, the bible specifically warns those who bring offense (hurt or to harm in any way) that whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea, and if thy hand (keep your hands off) offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched, (Mark 9:42-44 KJV). The King (God) wants to give you your request on today; for, I hear him say all you need do is ask! Just as Esther did!
And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen. And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath went into the palace garden: and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king. (Instead, of some folks saying, “I’m sorry and turning away from there sins they are like the jackass and they are stubborn) Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed (too late for mercy; the judgment of God is about to fall upon you! You put your hands on the wrong sister (people) this time!!” whereon Esther was. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face, (Esther 7:6-8 KJV). you see you don’t have to do a thing all you need do is remove YOUR hands off the situation!!!
I hear God warning you to turn before it is TOO late!
His eyes are upon the sparrow!
This morning in prayer, I heard God saying that his eyes are upon the sparrow!
When covenants and relationships become severed; God’s eyes are upon the sparrow!
God said that trials and test come in many different ways in our lives; but his eyes are upon his people to bring them out of those trials! You see, many times there are some things that will come in your life and you may feel that God is not with you; when in fact He is! You see, many times God will allow somethings in your life that will shake you; even though it is against what you believe!
King Ahasuerus gave them drink in vessels of gold, (the vessels being diverse one from another,) and royal wine in abundance, according to the state of the king. And the drinking was according to the law (was there custom); none did compel: for so the king had appointed to all the officers of his house, that they should do according to every man’s pleasure. (meaning these men were having a ball drinking and doing God knows what while drinking) also Vashti the Queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to King Ahasuerus, and the king summoned for Vashti for them to bring Vashti the Queen before the king with the crown royal, to shew the people and the princes her beauty: (many scholars debate this and say she was naked and did not feel comfortable doing this request in front of the men; as any woman would) for she was fair to look on.
But the Queen Vashti refused to come at the king’s commandment (he was the head and had every right to request her to come) by his chamberlains: therefore was the king very wroth, and his anger burned in him. Then the king said to the wise men, which knew the times, (for so was the king’s manner toward all that knew law and judgment. However, because she refused (to come in before a bunch of drunk men; to show off her naked beautiful body) it brought about disharmony within the kingdom, and many of the men began to ask question saying, “What shall we do unto the Queen Vashti according to law, because she hath not performed the commandment of the King Ahasuerus by the chamberlains?” (Esther 1:7-15).
According to the king the covenant was broken between him and Vashti and he decided to put her away according to the custom and his tradition!
You see, I hear God saying that you can be right and yet wrong in the relationship; and many times both parties can not come to an agreement which leads to a dissolution to a marriage, a friendship, a church covenant, etc. But God’s eyes is on the sparrow! Just as it was with Sarah and her hand maid when Sarah sent Hagar away because of what she had (unbelief) done, and she refused to wait on God to give her a child; but she decided she would give Hagar to her husband to get child instead of waiting on God!
But God eyes is upon the sparrow: “and God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, what aileth thee, Hagar? Fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is,” (Genesis 21:8-21).
But, I heard God this morning saying that his eyes is upon the sparrow! You see, many times we as the people of God are going to have some covenants that are going to be broken (of no fault of our own) because we can not come into agreement with other folks and God knows this! But, I hear God saying that if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. (you will have to accept that person’s decision to depart; why? God does not work against our will) for what knowest thou, o wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? Or how knowest thou, o man, whether thou shalt save thy wife? (1 Corinthians 7:15-16).
For, I hear God saying that he does not expect you to stay in a relationship that you are not wanted (fighting, going to jail and ruining your good name) in (abuse/neglect is taking place); however, he does expect you as a husband and or a wife to do everything in your power to (work it out according to the word of God) bring that spouse into salvation if it be possible, but that does not always happen! God said to tell his people that his eyes are continually upon the sparrow! You see, many times we think because covenants are broken with others that God should do something about it, but God knows that it takes two to make a relationship work! Vashti could not make the king accept her decision to refuse him and the king could not make queen Vashti do what he wanted her to do, and this is why the covenant between them was broken and the king sought a new queen! The will of The Lord be done!
For, I hear God saying that many times we are seeking solutions for broken covenants and relationships among others, but I hear God saying that we as a people need to seek God for the answers that you need just as king Jehoshaphat did! You see, king Jehoshaphat’s enemies came up against him; he began seeking God for answers, and the spirit of The Lord fail upon him giving him instructions!
My God my God! God is a God of solutions: He will not leave His people comfortless and this is what he said to king Jehoshaphat, “and he said, hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, thus saith The Lord unto you, be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, (wait on The Lord and be of good courage) and see the salvation of The Lord with you, o Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for The Lord will be with you,” (2 chronicles 20:15-17).
God eyes are upon the sparrow in this season; and He is saying to you stand still and see His salvation; you don’t have to fight in this battle, all you need do is to stand still and to see His salvation!
