TOPIC: Not My Child (Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries Wednesday, 4 July 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 3: 16-21
MEMORY VERSE: “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.” – John 10:10
We have before us a wonderful story of two harlots who came to King Solomon. Both harlots claimed to be the mother of a living child. Please picture the scenario. Read again the discourse of the mother of the living child and what happened when she slept. At midnight, the other woman took her son from beside her and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in the bosom of her roommate. When she woke in the morning to nurse her child, behold, it was dead. But when she examined it in the morning, behold it was not her son, whom she did bear.
Beloved, many people fall in the category of the woman you just read about. They are going about with a dead child. A child stands for anything very dear to you. It could be your career, business, marriage, ministry or any other thing so dear to you. The enemy has three agenda to steal, kill and destroy these things so dear to you. In this case, the enemy wanted to steal the joy of the mother of the living child. She carried the baby in her womb for nine months and went through labour to deliver her baby which was the symbol of joy to her. At the time she should be rejoicing over a new blessing received, the enemy appeared. The enemy came at the unguarded and unwatchful hour of the day. When men slept, the enemy struck. Are you sleeping at hour you should be awake to fight with the enemy of your blessing?
Is your story similar to that of the woman whose child was replaced? If so, then you have got to wake up like the woman did and RUN TO THE KING OF KINGS. Is it your marriage, business, child or job that the enemy wants to steal or has stolen? Arise, wake up from slumbering and take your case to the true and faithful judge, the King of kings. Come to His court room and present your case. Do not allow the enemy to change your living child for the dead. One thing is urgent and important: you must wake up from your spiritual slumber and take what belongs to you. Take it before the enemy takes it from you.
You will not recover except you discover the raiding of the robbers.
THE LORD SHALL RESTORE ALL THAT THE ENEMY HAS STOLEN FROM YOU.
