A Thought on our today’s verse

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

This passage is one of the most poignant sections in Scripture, that describes Jesus as the true Shepherd of Israel, Who was betrayed for the price of a slave – (30 pieces of silver). Here, we read about the coming worthless shepherd, who abandons the flock of God, and justly deserves condemnation.

Israel rejected the good and gracious Shepherd, Who was sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, at His first coming. He was despised and rejected by many. He was a Man of deep sorrow, Who was acquainted with grief. Jesus came to His own, created world, in His Father’s name, and was not accepted by His own people.. and yet there is coming a false and idol shepherd, who will come in another name, pretending that he is the Messiah.. and he will be accepted –how tragic.

This is a prophecy, which was partially fulfilled at Christ’s first coming, when the true Shepherd of Israel was rejected and crucified. However, the worthless and idol shepherd, who is the subject of this verse, is yet future. He is the one, who that will be revealed during the fast-approaching, ‘Time of Jacob’s Trouble” – the 70th week of Daniel, which is often identified as the great, seven-year tribulation period.

He will deceive the people of Israel with lies and trickery, for he will abandon them and rob them. He will abuse them and slay them – but his treachery will finally be exposed.

Zechariah gives a description of this worthless shepherd. We read that: a sword will be on his arm – and on his right eye! Also, his arm will be totally withered. Although it is more than likely that his physical appearance will mirror this description.. and he will have a wounded right eye and a crippled arm, the Bible often uses the word ‘arm’ to identify strength – or the lack of strength.. and Scripture often uses the word: ‘eye’ to designate intelligence – or the lack of it.

How sad, that Israel rejected their true Shepherd, whilst accepting this worthless, counterfeit fellow. However God is faithful to His people, and we read.. that the strength of this idol shepherd, will be terminated. His intellect will be found wanting, and he will be destroyed by the glory of Christ’s coming. On that day, God will graciously deliver His people, Israel –and will wipe away all tears from their eyes.

My Prayer

Heavenly Father, what a gracious Saviour and good Shepherd You are, to both Israel and to the Church. Thank You for this peep into the future and the knowledge.. that despite all the terrible things that are to take place, during the time of Jacob’s trouble –You remain faithful to Your people, and will restore to them the inheritance, that You promised to Abraham and his seed, forever. We pray that while it is still ‘today’, many people, both Jew and gentile, would come to a saving knowledge of Christ, in Whose name we pray, AMEN. … More A Thought on our today’s verse

PRAYERS FOR GOD’S FAVOUR

PRAYERS FOR GOD’S FAVOUR

Would you like to have anointed favour to come upon your life? This is God’s desire for you.

The bible declares that God anointed Jesus with His spirit to come and declare the year of the Lords favour upon us.

We are favoured by the lord. It is however sad that the enemy comes to condemn and steal/block/divert the favour that we should have.

Begin your new year/month/ week with these prayers to release your favour upon your life.

Remember this is by faith alone. Take it by force my brethren:

Begin with praise and worship
I confess that my faith is in the Lordship of Jesus Christ, my saviour

Ps 102:13 says “Thou shall arise, and have mercy upon Zion, for the time to favour her, yea, the set time is come”.

I declare that this is my time for the lord to arise and have mercy upon me for the time of my favour has come.

Ps 89:20 says “I have found favour with David my servant, with holy oil have I anointed him”.

Lord let me have favour with you, arise o my God, and anoint me with holy oil.

I destroy them in the name of Jesus. I rebuke all demons controlling them in the name of Jesus

I silence all demons disturbing my spirit in the name of Jesus

I release the fire of the Holy spirit to destroy every source of evil thoughts in Jesus name

I nullify and destroy all curses and garments of ill luck, curses and garments of failure, curses and garments of shame, curses and garments of hatred, curses and garments of death, curses and garments of disappointment and any other curse or garment of the devil hindering me from receiving my favour

I rebuke, bind and cast them out in Jesus name

I erase them with the blood of Jesus

I erase with the blood of Jesus marks of disappointment, marks of sorrow, marks of hatred, marks of poverty, marks of ill-luck, marks of sicknesses, marks of failure, marks of trouble and every other visible or invisible mark

I bind rebuke and cast away in Jesus name demons following me because of these marks

I wash myself with the blood of Jesus and command the good angels of the Lord to follow me

My name is……………… from ………….(country),…………(tribe) and ……………(clan-if any)

If in any case my name, surname, clan, tribe or country is that of a demon, an idol, a river or steam, evil person, mermaid, bitter occasion, market day, evil day/season or anything that glorifies Satan, I destroy the spiritual meaning and significance of such names

I bind, rebuke and cast out every demon that has been hindering my progress though such names in Jesus name

I now dedicate my name and cancel all negative connotations of my name to the glory of God in the name of Jesus

O lord, make my name a blessing and turn away your shame to glory

I command every demon that causes me to eat in my dream, have sex in my dream, fly in my dream, talk in my dream, swim in my dream, cry in my dream, fear in my d

I declare its time for my favour in Jesus name

Let your angels o lord, of goodness and mercy follow me
I now put on garments of divine favour

O lord, light the candle of my life (Ps 18:28) and thank you so much for favouring me.

To add to these prayers, your actions must be added to receive the divine favor.

Respect 10 commandments. Seek no pleasure, live to serve others and live through kind selfless service. Fast often.

Forgive those who offended you and give gifts anonymously.

(You will be especially blessed if the person thanks God, not you, for the gift). … More PRAYERS FOR GOD’S FAVOUR

I FOUND THIS INTRESTING HOPE YOU TOO

*I found this interesting. You may too:*

*There was a Pastor who had a Choir team and the Choir was the Best Team ever in his Mind. People would not afford to miss their Ministration during Service and at Conferences.*

*The Pastor died 3 days before the Youth conference. So the Pastor Cried out to God that he could not Miss the day his Choir was singing and God said you can’t go back on earth but the day your choir will be Ministering, I will grant you the Chance to see them Singing on Earth.*

*So the day came and God fulfilled His promise to the Pastor. What shocked the Pastor was that he could only hear two Female and one Male voice amongst the whole choir.*
*He asked God why am I Hearing only Three person Voice yet people are rejoicing with the way they are singing…and God replied, ” here in Heaven we only hear the Voices of those who sing in Truth and in Spirit, also in Right Standing with my Word…”.*
*The Pastor Cried and said what about my Wife and Others?*
*God replied,” they are doing it for Prestige not for my Sake, so only those on Earth Rejoice but the Heavens are not Moved by that.*

*So its a lesson for you Worshippers…. Do not please Man but your Father who sees the Heart, who sees Every place you are, who sees your Commitment at His Works.*

*Pass this to other Worshippers especially Groups, it’s faster.*
*John 4:23-24.* 😇 … More I FOUND THIS INTRESTING HOPE YOU TOO

Giving God what’s in your handsHow can
you know if you are truly trusting God with
your life? One central question is whether
you have fully committed your time, talent,
and treasure into His hands.If you need
some kind of breakthrough or turnaround
in your life today, the key is probably not in
some far-off place—it’s right there in your
hand! But the breakthrough won’t come
until what you have inYOUR hand is
transferred into GOD’S hand!How much food
does it take to feed more than 5,000 hungry
people? We see in Matthew 14:14-21 that
thisonly requires five loaves of bread and
two fish, IF they are transferred into Jesus’
hands and blessed by Him!But how many
people could have been fed without Jesus’
blessing on theseloaves and fish? Maybe five
or ten! So if you want to see the Lord’s
supernatural blessing and provision, you
must trust Him with the resources
you’vebeen holding onto.We also see this
principle in Exodus 4:2, whenGod asks
Moses the same question I believe He’s
asking you today:“What is that in your
hand?”All Moses had in his hand at that
point was a simple wooden shepherd’s rod.
Yet after he laid it down and surrendered it
into the Lord’s hand, Exodus 4:20 says it
was transformed into“the rod of
God.”Endued with God’s supernatural
power, this wooden stick was able to part
the Red Sea (Exodus 14:21), bring water out
of a rock (Exodus17:5-6), and gain
supernatural victory over enemy armies
(Exodus 17:8-13).Friend, I believe your
breakthrough from God is at hand today—
andit’s literally in your hand! Whatever
turnaround you need from Him—whether
inyour finances, marriage, job, health, or
children—the key is surrendering all of your
resources into the hands of your Almighty
Father and covenant partner.So before we
move on, I ask you to do an honest
assessment of what you need God to do for
you. Be as clear and specific on this as
possible, because the Bible says in James
4:2, “You do not have because you do not
ask.” The next step is to assess what is in
your hand. Has God given you resources—
time,talent, or treasure—that you still
haven’t transferred into His hands?When
you decideto fully trust Godwith your life,
you will receive great peace of mind—peace
that surpasses all understanding, the Bible
says (Philippians 4:6-7). And in addition to
receiving a new level of God’s wonderful
peace,your trust in Himwill cause more of
His blessings and favor to be released into
your life.God bless you. … More SUMMERIES
