Our blessings are ripe and ready to harvest, but the thief the devil is lurking around to steal, kill and destroy them.
We must give him NO place!
The fruit of our labour is ready for harvest, and we must put in our sickle of HOLY SPIRIT-led prayers, declarations, decrees and actions to bring in our sheaves.
The thief is relentlessly trying to rob us of all the goodness GOD is releasing to us at this set time.
I had a poignant and instructive dream on January 9, 2022, in which I was entering a building, like a community centre.
Upon entering, I saw on my right what looked like an elevated indoor flower bed. It was built and braced with yellowish golden timber.
And in it was a very BOUNTIFUL yield of rice ripe and ready to harvest. It appeared to have grown out of a recent previous harvest.
The variety looked so beautiful with a yellowish golden hue.
No one in the building cared about the crop, and was certain to go to waste.
I was attracted to the wonderful yield of rice, and decided to harvest it.
I was almost done harvesting, when suddenly, an energetic young man came behind me and started wrestling the sheaves of the harvest out of my hand.
In the natural, I am in my fifties, but the young man was no match for me because of The Power of GOD working in me.
I resisted and repelled him, and he fled.
My special new harvest was safe and secure in my hand.
I next found myself walking on a major road, sort of exploring the area just outside the town.
The road had a high elevation, with a verdant lower ground along on the right.
Far down in the vegetation was a very tall pawpaw tree with three of the fruits on it, beautifully ripe and ready to pluck.
Oh, they looked so succulently inviting.
I thought and turned to descend and look for a long pole in the woods to pluck them.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, a topless muscular young man appeared in the distance down in the bush, having spotted the pawpaws after I was going for them.
He was acting suspiciously like a thief. He appeared a petty criminal and a vagabond.
Very quickly, he looked around gingerly, found and was holding up a very long stalk of a dead, dried and flat pawpaw tree and making his way to pluck the pawpaws.
I was disappointed to have been beaten to it.
End of dream.
Both parts of the dream speak and emphasise the same message from THE LORD: He has blessings ripe and ready for us at this set time, but we have to wrestle and fight to obtain them.
My contrasting reactions and responses in the two parts of the dream are very instructive.
When the attacker came to rob me of my harvest of rice, I fought him off, strong in THE LORD and in the power of His Might.
But in the other part, when the pawpaws I had seen was suddenly being usurped by an apparent thief, I did not contend for it, but was rather disappointed.
We must always fight the thief the devil and not give up on our blessings from GOD.
“Therefore submit to GOD. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” 1 Peter 5:8-9.
We must thrust in our sickle of thanksgiving, praise, worship, prayer, supplication, intercessions, declarations, and reap the blessings. Because the time has come for us to reap that which is ripe and ready.
For as long as let by THE HOLY SPIRIT, repeatedly pray the prayer below to have your blessings preserved, reserved and released to you:
“In JESUS’ NAME, LORD I repent for my personal, parental and ancestral sins hindering my blessings, favour and help from You to me. Please forgive me.
Redeem and cleanse my life and my bloodline from all of them.
Redeem, release, set me free and purify me from all yokes, strongholds, soul-ties, sins, shame, schemes, pursuits, persecutions, passions, hindrances, harassments, fellowships, distractions, disguises, devices, detours, destructions, desires, demons, demands, delays, defilements, deaths, curses, covenants, contracts, consequences, communions, claims, captivities, bondages, agreements and accords thereof.
Now LORD, I ask You The Breaker to go over before me and breakthrough for me with a master of breakthroughs like the breakthrough of waters as You did for David.
You are He Who is true, He Who has The Key of David, He Who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens. You know my works. I see, You have set before me an open door, and no one can shut it; for I have a little strength, have kept Your Word, and have not denied Your Name. (Revelation 3:7-8)
You have said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found Grace in My Sight.’ Now therefore, I pray, if I have found Grace in Your sight, show me now Your Way, that I may know You and that I may find Grace in Your Sight. And consider that we are Your people.
Let Your Presence go with me, and give me rest. If Your Presence does not go with me, do not bring me up from here. For how then will it be known that I have found Grace in Your sight, except You go with me? So I shall be separate unto you.
LORD, as you did for Moses, also do this thing that I have spoken; for I have found Grace in Your Sight, and You know me by name.
Please, show me Your Glory. Make all Your Goodness pass before me, and proclaim The Name of THE LORD before me. Yes, proclaim THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST before me, that NOBLE Name by Which we are called, the more EXCELLENT Name.
“THE LORD gives Voice before His army, for His Camp is very great; for strong is The One Who executes His Word. For the day of THE LORD is great and very terrible; who can endure it?” Joel 2:11.
LORD, give Voice before me for favour and breakthroughs.
Go over before me as The Consuming Fire and destroy all hindrances out of the way.
Let THE LORD be seen over me as Zechariah says, and His Arrow go forth like lightning. Let THE LORD GOD blow The Trumpet, and go with whirlwinds from the south.
And as Isaiah says, let GOD be my rear guard. Let The Glory of THE LORD be my rear guard.
Be gracious to me to whom You will be gracious, have Mercy on me on whom You will have Mercy, and have compassion on me on whom You will have compassion.
In The Name of JESUS CHRIST, by The Word of GOD, according to The New Covenant in His Blood, I bind Mercy and Truth around my neck and so I find favour and high esteem in the Sight of GOD and man. I eat of the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory I boast. The wealth of the sinner is laid up for me the righteous. The wealth of the Gentiles come to me. Therefore my gates are open continually; they shall not be shut day or night, that men may bring to me the wealth of the Gentiles, and their kings in procession. (Proverbs 3:4;13:22; Isaiah 61:6; 60:5,11).
LORD JESUS, in Your NAME, with the assistance of Your Holy angels and Your HOLY SPIRIT, I reap my ripe harvest NOW! It shall not be stolen, usurped or neglected.
In THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, I forbid you the devil the thief from robbing me of my harvest! I forbid and destroy you by THE BLOOD OF JESUS, by Fire and by His Sword, yes, I destroy you and your robbery attempts by THE BLOOD OF JESUS, by His GREAT Fire, His GREAT Light and by His SEVERE Sword GREAT and strong.
I command you consumed by The Breath of His Mouth and destroyed by The Brightness of His Coming – consumed and destroyed like the lawless one.
Satan, let go! Let go! Let go! I command you in The Name of JESUS CHRIST to let go of my life, my marriage, my children, my employment, my business, my finances and all my inheritance from THE FATHER.
THE LORD says you are the thief.
And as written, let him who stole, steal no longer.
Therefore, in JESUS’ NAME I forbid you to steal any longer.
According to The Law of GOD in Proverbs 6:30-31, the thief when found, must restore sevenfold; he may have to give up all the substance of his house.
Therefore, in JESUS’ NAME, I command you Satan to immediately restore to me sevenfold all that you stole of my life, my marriage, my children, my employment, my finances and all other areas of my life.
In THE NAME OF our Advocate with THE FATHER — JESUS CHRIST THE RIGHTEOUS, I ask You GOD THE JUDGE OF ALL to order the devil the thief to restore to me sevenfold, all that he stole from me; and give up all the substance of his house. Right now.
THANK You FATHER, I know You have heard me, and that You hear me always.
“When THE LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, “THE LORD has done great things for them.” THE LORD has done great things for us, And we are glad. Bring back our captivity, O LORD, As the streams in the South. Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalms 126:1-6.
“And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him Who sat on The Coud, “Thrust in Your Sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So He Who sat on The Cloud thrust in His Sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.” Revelation 14:15-16.
“The LORD Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:22.
“Farewell” Acts 15:29.
~ Jacob Addison Awagah
Jacob, an apostle of JESUS CHRIST by The Will of GOD, according to The Promise of Life which is in CHRIST JESUS, (2 Timothy 1:1).
Like John, I like to put my head to The Heart of JESUS so as to know and do His Will always. What’s in His Heart is what matters now and FOREVER. His Heart’s Desire is my only desire.
As John was, I am the disciple whom JESUS loves, (John 13:23;19:26; 20:2; 21:7,20)
And like Paul, Jacob is “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 3:1) for His Purpose forever: to obey Him always.
NB. Surely, “the disciple whom JESUS loves” and “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS”, like ALL The Promises of GOD, are available to every believer to obtain, just as John and Paul did.
“And having been perfected, He became The Author of Eternal Salvation to all who obey Him,” Hebrews 5:9.
