Theme : SILENCING MOCKERS
Preacher : Pastor E.A Adeboye
Bible Text : 1 Samuel 2:1-10
Mockers always end badly. In Luke 17:26-27, many mocked Noah for obeying God but regretted it. They mocked Naoh until the floods came. The same thing happened with Lot in Luke 17:28-30.
Moses instructed the people of Israel concerning the coming pestilence but some mocked the directives and fell victims of the angel of death. Exodus 12:21-29
The children of Israel sinned against God and He sent serpents among them. After a while God instructed that a Brasen image of a serpent be made and everyone who looked on it would not die. Some disdained this and died. Numbers 21:5-9
Jesus is also lifted up in this light, He is calling all those who are far away to come and surrender to Him. Don’t mock the golden opportunity to be saved; don’t mock the call to salvation- John 3:14-18
Don’t joke with sin because sin is a killer. Remember we cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound. Those born of God cannot sin because the seed of God is in them; the things you used to do will naturally be repulsive to you. Everything will become brand new.
Repentance means not going back to an old way of life. There is no salvation without repentance.
Surrender to Jesus now!!!
The reason why your mockers are in trouble is simply because of your association with God. 1 John 4:4
If you are a true child of God, any one who touches you or persecutes you is persecuting God. Acts 9:1-5, Isaiah 53:8-9,
Whenever someone is mocking you he is reproaching God and God will answer the fellow – Proverbs 17:5
Decree – All those who have the intention of persecuting you will meet the Lord on the way!
God does as He pleases with people who mock and persecutes His children. Psalms 115:1-3
Those who are mocking your fruitlesness are mocing God, the commander of wombs. This is not restricted to babies. 1 Samuel 1:1-6, Genesis 16:1-4. God commanded fruitfulness at creation. Genesis 1:28; 6:1
When people mock you for being barren, they are mocking the One that can open and close. Genesis 21:31; 30:22-33
Decree – Your womb will obey the commandment of God in Jesus Name.
Our God has the Keys of David, when He opens no man can shut and when He shuts no man can open. Revelation 3:7
People give physical or biological explanations for barrenness but you should know that it is not doctors nor science that created you. Mark 7:37, Genesis 1:31, Psalms 139:14
If you have been told that you cannot have a child, lay your hand on your stomach and say: My womb is wonderfully made, my Creator does not make mistakes.
Even if you have a biological defect, God can still intervene. John 9:1-7, Acts 3:1-8
God steps in situations in an instant. John 5:2-9
Every report contrary to your fruitfulness will be completely wiped out.
For some people, their case is spiritual. It means some forces might be holding them in bondage – spiritual husbands/wives, evil in-laws, demons etc. Exodus 5:1-2
All spiritual forces will always bow to Jesus. Psalms 24:7-10, Daniel 3:0-30, Philippians 2:9-11
Every force of darkness surrounding you will be put to flight in Jesus name.
Humanly speaking some cases are considered hopeless, but our God is the Almighty. Psalms 91:1, Jeremiah 32:37
Sarah, in Gen 9:1-14 was deemed too old, but God spoke a word and suddenly, what was old became new.
Lazarus had been buried. It was too late for Him, But God brought Him back to life.
God can bring dead bones back to life.
Even if your case is defying the faith of your pastor, put your trust in God because He is the Almighty – Ezekiel 37.
The word impossible is not in God’s dictionary.
From today onward you will never fail again.
All those who say you cannot succeed God will give them a surprise.
All those who mock our efforts are mocking the Great Enabler (God).
It is possible to work hard and have nothing to show for it. Peter experienced this in Luke 5:1-7.
But the story turned when God stepped in. Philippians 4:13, Isaiah 40:2i-31
Afterall, our God owns all things. Psalms 24:1, Haggai 2:8
Don’t mock your maker. You are mocking God when you doubt Him. 2 Corinthians 1:20, 2 King 4:8-17
You should not doubt God because once God speaks it is done. Psalms 33:8-9
Even when the promise seems to you like a joke, God will fulfill it.
The Lord says there is someone here tonight;
1) doctors told you specifically that your womb is in a mess, “I will replace that womb”
2) your number one enemy will receive a visit from My angel tonight.
3) the source of your problem is envy, relax I will take care of the situation.
4) any attempt to kill you will backfire.
5)the one who lied against you will become your servant.
6)you will come out of the fire without a scar.
1 ) Father, anything blocking my way to fruitfulness, send down Your fire tonight and burn it off.
2 ) Father, whatever is imperfect in my system, correct or replace.
3 ) Every evil force standing between me and fruitfulness, Lord of Hosts, dismiss them all.
4 ) Father, You are my hope of Glory, all those who say it is too late for me, surprise them.
5 ) Father, those who say I won’t reach the top, silence them.
