Matthew 6:19-34 Romans 13:11-14 (Note v. 12) John 3:19; 1 John 1:5 Ephesians 5:11 Isaiah 42:5-7; 1 Samuel 2:9 Job 28:3 (Stones of darkness) Job 34:22-25 Psalm 91 Exodus 14:19-20 Isaiah 45:1-7; 2 Peter 2:4 (Chains of darkness) Jeremiah 2:31 (Land of darkness) Nahum 1:8 Luke 11:35 Isaiah 60:1-end Daniel 2:22
For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness, in Jesus’ name (Psalm 18:28).
Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I SHALL ARISE; when I sit in darkness, the LORD SHALL BE A LIGHT UNTO ME (Micah 7:8, emphasis added).
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: I cast off the works of darkness, and put on the armour of light, in the name of Jesus (Romans 13:12).
I am a member of God’s chosen generation, His royal priesthood, His holy nation, His peculiar people, to show forth the praises of Him who has called me out of darkness into His marvelous light. I confess that darkness has no power over me, in Jesus’ name (1 Peter 2:9).
1Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
2For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
3And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
raise be to the Living God for being our eternal Light according to 1 John 1: 5. “…God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.” This message is to establish the fact that to maximize the fullness of the riches of our Calvary inheritance in Christ, nothing of darkness should be permitted in our domain. Hear this, beloved, a colourful destiny can never have expression inside darkness. No matter how powerful a torch or flashlight is, if given to a blind man, he can’t utilize it until the darkness in his eyes has first been taken care of. May sudden darkness not cover you up, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
God must set an end to the darkness in your life for joy to come in (Job 28:3). The stones of darkness that have been thrown into many homes, businesses, bodies, finances and churches have wreaked untold damage. But first those stones must be evacuated and their damage or injuries healed by the blood of Jesus.
Good things ignorantly or mistakenly established in the land of darkness (Jeremiah 2:31) can’t thrive. Any establishment sited on accursed land will be spiritually wounded. Incalculable goodness has been warehoused in the land of darkness and their owners tied down there too. But by reason of His finished work at Calvary, the Lord will arise and deliver us, in the name of Jesus.
We must command the chains of darkness (2 Peter 2:4) thriving illegally in any department of our lives to be broken in Jesus’ name in order that we may reign gloriously in the kingdom of light. And according to Matthew 13:24-30, it is while men sleep that the enemy comes in and sows tares among people’s wheat and goes his way.
Now let me quickly paint for you here an outline of the activities of the dark powers of this world in order that holy anger may rise up within you against them and their wicked schemes, strategies, devices and operations in your life:
- Dark powers swallow stars and glory prematurely. They destroy budding flowers by the spirit of Cain—the spirit that destroys good things in infancy.
- Dark powers mess up people’s health, wealth and anointing.
- They make you do the wrong things and walk away from destiny.
- They withdraw and cage people’s potentials and resources thereby making life burdensome for the victims.
- They hold evil meetings, issue summons, judge people, place sanctions, circulate pictures and names on evil altars and curse. But Proverbs 26:2 says “the curse causeless shall not come.”
- They plant fear in people’s minds, monitor them and give information to hell to deal with them, feed them in the night, cause barrenness, etc., etc.
- Dark powers place on people embargoes, siege and invisible load. They turn to strange creatures (Psalm 68:30) and programme people to commit sin, and to do the unthinkable and downright unreasonable. But God is there to defend His own and He will defend us, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
As for us, we must live a life of righteousness. We must read, study, memorize, constantly meditate on and live by the Word of God; and engage in high-level spiritual warfare on governmental level to dislodge all these activities of darkness.
