SCRIPTURE: 2 Samuel 6:8-23 Out of fear David placed the Ark of God in Obededom’s house instead of his city. But he realized that because of the Ark of God Obededom was blessed so he went back for the Ark of God. Verse 13: David offered a first sacrifice to the Lord. Verse 14-15: Next, Although David was wearing his Priesthood garmennt he danced before the Lord with all his might. This moved all the people of Israel to join him in the celebration with shouting and the Sound of the Trumpet . As Christians we should focus on the Lord just like David who was a man after God’s own heart . Let’s join and encourage others in the service and worship of the Lord. Verse 16: Michal (meaning who is like God) despised David for the way he danced. Michal used a window to save David from Saul, her father. But through looking a window she disposed David. Verse 17-18: Even after David was despised he offered two more sacrifices not focusing on Michal’s attitude although she was helped saved his life. It means some people can support us against humans but stand between us and God. As Christian, no matter the gossips, insults, disrespect, intimidation and all, we should not focus on anyone else apart from serving God our Lord in the church and in this world. Verse 19: The house of Isreal continued celebrating. Keep on celebrating in the Lord no matter what. Verse 20-22: When David came to the house, Michal mocked David for uncovering himself in public. David remembered his creator and expressed the reason for his dance in the presence of the Ark of God ( the Presence of God) of how he was chosen before God’s and Saul’s presence as the ruler of Israel. As Christians we should remember the blessings of God and where he took us from. We should focus on only God in times of worship and in our life. Verse 23: Although Michal had five children, she had no child until the day of her death. Although David did not curse Michal, God did. This was a negative sign and wonder among the many others. God will curse our womb of fruitfulness if we stand between others and him. It’s my prayer that you avoid negative signs and wonders this year. Join us same time next next and Breakthrough Service tomorrow at 6:00 pm.
2020 is a Year of Signs and Performance. 4:1. Moses asked for a sign from the Lord. Prayer Point: Ask the Lord for Signs in your life this year. Exodus 4:2: What do you carry. God asked Moses what was in his hand. Just like Mose’s rod and Samson’s strength. What you carry will lead you. Is it marriage, beauty, intelligence, sacrifice, singing. Prayer Point: May the Lord help you know what you carry. Ask the Lord to give you something in hand or restore what you have lost this year. Verse 3: Moses carried a rod that represents tribe and family. Prayer Point: Within our family, may God locate us just like David was located in his tribe and bless us. This year may we be the Saviours of our generation. Rom. 11:16. As we being the branch and Christ being the root may we be holy for blessing. When there are no branches there can’t be seed. Every tree that bears no fruit shall be cut off. Prayer Point: May we be the branch of our family that expands. Verse 17: Lord may we not be broken down and carry power to sustain as partakers of the root and fatness. Prayer Point: Pray to enjoy the fruitiness of Lord this year. Exodus 4:3.

31st was a night of escape but your enemies are still following. 1 Sam 19:10: The voice you hear determines what you do. What you think determines who you are. God gave rainbow as a sign. David was haunted by Saul because he was possessed by evil spirits. The people who you help even your family may turn against you. The same David who played the harp to cast out Saul’s demons was attacked by Saul. I pray that the grace of God stand against any person that turns against you. As Michal helped David may the relatives of your enemies help you. You will have a way of escape this year. Just like Pharoah’s own daughter saved Moses. I pray may God bring God-fearing people to support your life this year. This year don’t go and support the enemies of God. We are in a generation of people that can easily betray you. Saul was dissappointed a lot of times from his plots. Run to your spiritual father like David run to his spiritual father Samuel for safety. Samuel has root meaning as head of God. Samuel also means God has heard. May God hear your cry as you run. Samuel was in Rama which means hill. Thats why David said I lift my eyes unto the Mountains where my help comes from the Lord. I pray that under this canopy may you possess your possessions. Naiot has root meaning as house of God. It also means presence, abide, hope, rest, beutify. That’s why the Bible says in Mat. 11:30: Come to me all ye who are weary and I will give you rest. As the best soldiers of Saul that hunted David began to prophecy may your enemies change in realms and prophecy. They joined David and Samuel. Later eye-witnesses directed Saul to Rama where he also prophecied naked the whole day and night. This year your enemies will surrender, and join you to worship the Lord because of the Glory God has given to you. The Lord will set a table in the presence of your enemies. Your enemies will be touched by your status, speech and join your victory. This year Prophesy big things into your life. This is a year of Signs and Performance.
John 1:14: And the word became flesh. The first words are always from God. Word (logos) is something spoken by living Light was Christ. Don’t speak darkness but light and good things. To hear the voice of God you need a father to connect you just like Eli connected Samuel. The voice of God is decoded by the Fathers. Jacob spoke the future of all his sons. God asked Adam and Eve, Who told you that you were naked? Who told you poverty is your limit? Flesh is embodiment to cover nakedness of man. God became flesh to cover us and crucified naked to cover our sins. Prayer Point: Any nakedness in my life be covered in Jesus name. It’s not by qualifications but by Grace just like Noah’s favour saved him, his family and animals. The greatest gift you need is covering. Who is your covering? Jacob said the God of Isaac and my fathers. What you need is the word but any other means. The Lord took Ezekiel into a valley with darkness where there was dry bones. In Ezekiel 37, God told Ezekiel to prophecy for the dry bones to live. In the end times God will pour his spirit on us all no matter your qualifications. Prayer Point: Prophecy good things over your life.
Let your light shine because glory(light) cannot be hidden. Stop hiding.
Prov. 18:10: The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run to it and are safe. God means Elohim or pre-existing.
You define God according to his attributes so its the Holy spirit but no word can define their essence. I want to motivate you with the name of the Lord. The name of the Lord has power to give freedom. There is only one Lord. God introduced his name to Moses before delivering the Israelites. The oldest language is Hebrew. English Language evolve but Hebrew doesn’t. We need to understand the Dimension of the name so we can believe he can save us. 1 Cor 1:7: You may have knowledge but lack understanding. Isaiah 54:16-17: God gave the blacksmith knowledge to forge the weapon that cannot prosper against you. Jeremiah 33:2-3: The name of the name is stronger than anything so can be called upon. The name of the Lord is a four letter word (Tetragrammaton). For this name to be written one must wash and purify hands after each letter. The name could not be mentioned because it was great and holy. The Hebrews called God Hashem (meaning the name). Lord means I am that I am (Latin : INRI) YHVH (Yodheyvavhey or Yehova) Hallelujah means making priase before your enemies by the name of the Lord. John 5:43: Jesus came in God’s name … John 14:14: If you ask anything in my name, I will do it. The Hebrews held sacrifice with cedar wood. Jesus carried a cedar wood cross because he was the cedar lamb.
John 19:19: Pontius Pilate wrote on the cross: JESUS OF NAZERETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS) translated and abbreviated in Hebrew as YHVH. When the Hebrews realized this they objected. But Pilate said I don’t know what I have written but what is written is written. John 1:1: God was the word and beginning. Pictographs were used to express words in Hebrews. Yod and Hey is the life and essence of God. Yah (Y as a new born child raises hands; and petals blossom flower; or when someone raises both hands for deliverance.
Some trust in chariots and others in horses but we trust in the NAME of the Lord. Fix your trust in the NAME of the Lord.
