Not Every Prophet Will Marry — Some Are on Assignment!
There are Prophets of old who are not recorded as being married, such as Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel and these men were major Prophets with weighty callings upon their lives.
Hear what Adonai told His prophet Jeremiah:
“You shall not take a wife, nor shall you have sons or daughters in this place” Jeremiah 16:1-2
There is more:
“For thus says The LORD: ‘Do not enter the house of mourning, nor go to lament or bemoan them . . . also you shall not go into the house of feasting to sit with them, to eat and drink” Jeremiah 16:5,8
So, Jeremiah was not allowed to get married, have children, go to funerals, or attend (wedding) feasts. Wow!
This must’ve been a hard instruction to carry out for the Prophet, nevertheless, he was faithful to He Who called and ordained him a Prophet to Nations.
Saints, knowing The Good and Perfect Will of Adonai and actually accepting what God’s Will is, can sometimes be a struggle internally — because what Father wants for us may not be what we bargained for.
But we ought to bear in mind that God’s Infinite, Omnipotent , Omniscient, all Wise all knowing and sees what we don’t.
His Word declares that our ways are not His 000 neither our thoughts.
God had His reasons for giving Jeremiah such hard instructions…
Why no marriage or children for Jeremiah? There was great calamity and distress coming to the nation of Judea and God said it was because of the grievous deaths that would come upon the people of Judah (Jeremiah 16:3-4).
The coming destruction of the nation at the hands of the Babylonians would disrupt family relations and bring about horrible suffering, which would result in many dead not being buried, and many scars would remain in the hearts of the survivors.
God wanted to spare Jeremiah such misery.
It’s not a curse on you if you aren’t married. Sometimes God just knows best and does things to keep you sane, focused and in His presence.
Pearls to Swine
God made deposits within you, divine treasures, and in doing so, He also creates the platform for expression, unveiling, revelation and showcasing.
If you have a “Gift” — be certain that gift — or gifts — are gonna take you places and bring you before great and worthy men!
Stop giving your pearls to swine — they won’t know how to treat you.
Struggles and Heart Aches
Do not compare struggles and heart aches.
Pain is the only feeling that is measured only by the person experiencing it. What you can brush off easily, might be devastating to that person, and what someone can physically handle, might be too painful for you to even imagine.
Everyone experiences trauma at some point in life, and while everyone’s healing process and duration is different.
We all bare pain differently. Don’t belittle anyone else’s struggle — because you can never feel it for them. Be moved with compassion — not criticism!
Prayer of Protection
I pray that God — whose name is YHWH — will deliver us from all evil work and preserve us to His Heavenly Kingdom.
To Him be all glory, honor, dominion and power!
May the diabolical, biochemical, bioengineered, food and medical weapons formed against Yah’s People never prosper.
I pray that Abba gives us diving immunity against all demonic micro organisms, pathogens, viruses, fungi and bacteria, electro-magnetic frequencies, radiation, and environmental pollutants released from the pit of hell — through The Blood of Yeshua.
Let there be no contamination and pollution of our blood; our organs will not deteriorate; no collapse in the Name of Yeshua!
I Decree our DNA and RNA will not be altered from its divine state.
We shall be a sign and wonder to The Glory of our God.
A Word for Sinners from a Merciful God
Listen, there are many persons out there who are either believers who are living in sin, have sinned, but are concealing it, or want to come to Christ — but for fear of being stigmatized — remain in their condition.
They think they’re undeserving, or that no one will understand what they’re going through.
They lose hope thinking they’re the worst, and that God had already written them off.
They’ve been in the dark so long, they’ve completely lost sight and need someone whose been down the road to help them along the way.
Stop being a hindrance and stumbling block to unbelievers and people who messed up!
Has your walk with God been without pit falls?
Let him who is without sin, cast the first stone!
God help us….
