8. Religion – Religion will lead many people to hell. Christianity is not religion, if you follow the way of religion, you will miss Christ and end up in hell. Religion is fallen man’s attempt to seek a holy God while Christianity is a Living God’s attempt to seek fallen man. It is the spirit of religion that propel some people to blow up others thinking that they are going to heaven.
9. Religious leaders – anywhere you find religion, you will find religious leaders. People who should have celebrated the miracle decided to level charges of blasphemy against Jesus. Jesus killed the spider (sin). Some sicknesses have their origin in sin. You may not be physically challenged but you may be spiritually challenged and your case may be like the case of the paralyzed man, where everything has collapsed in your hands and you need to be stretchered. The good news is that the same Jesus is saying to you whatever the cause of your spiritual paralysis will be rolled away. Jesus said to the man ‘arise’. Jesus is telling you today rise up, be healed. Heb. 13:8 says “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today and forever”. He has not changed.
Mark 11:22-24 – Have faith in God, in other words, place more value on your God connection. Why are you asking and not receiving? What have you been saying? How many faith statements have you made lately? Have you been saying things that will produce your desired miracle or have you been saying things that are capable of diminishing your faith in God?
- Heavenly Father, I know that with you nothing shall be impossible. Lord, I repent of all my negative confessions, I repent of speaking doubt when I should be speaking faith, I repent for not giving you enough room to operate in my life. I repent of partial connection, I repent of all the negative statements I have ever made, I repent of speaking fear instead of faith, I repent of speaking doubt instead of confident assurance in you. Lord, I repent today, in your mercy O God, please forgive me; help me Lord, in Jesus name.
- Father, let every doubt in my heart dissolve and disappear, let every fear in my heart dissolve and disappear. Father, I choose to make a purposeful connection with you through Christ, your dear Son. I thank you Jesus because you are the same yesterday, today and forever, I thank you because there is nothing you cannot do; there is no mountain you cannot move, there is no situation you cannot change, there is no sickness you cannot heal. Thank you Jesus because with you nothing shall be impossible. Today, I call upon your name, I ask you to have mercy on me in the name of Jesus. I now create room enough for you in my life, have your way. Move mightily, transform me and make me a transformer in the name of Jesus.
- You spirit of paralysis, I raise the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth against you, I overcome you by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of my testimony. In the name of Jesus Christ, I bind you today and I cast you into the abyss, I destroy your works, I terminate your operations, thus far you come, you go no further, in the name of Jesus. In the presence of Jesus Christ, I receive full restoration, in Jesus name.
- Every barrier to my miracle, be rolled away, dissolve and disappear, every physical and spiritual barrier, be rolled away, dissolve and disappear, every structural barrier, be rolled away, every limitation, be rolled away, every embargo, be rolled away, all you territorial barriers, every religious barrier, every theological barrier be rolled away, dissolve and disappear in the name of Jesus. I must have my miracle, my miracle must happen, in the mighty name of Jesus.
- Jesus must be honoured in my life; God must be honoured in my life. I will fulfil the purpose of God for my life. No more barrier, no more delay, no more barricade, no more embargo, no more paralysis, no more sickness, no more disease, in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Lord, I ask you to restore everything the enemy has stolen in my life; help me to live for you all the days of my life. Make the remaining part of my life the most fruitful, the most blessed, the most impactful, the most successful, in the name of Jesus. Thank you Almighty God.
- I proclaim dominion over anything that binds, anything that fetters, over anything that does not want me to be all that God wants me to be. I declare my eternal dominion over you today, in the mighty name of Jesus. Thank you, Lord.
- Now, name your miracle(s). Amen.
