BLESSED BEYOND CURSE (PART 16A) – CONFRONTING THE SEALS OF LIMITATION (1)
The word ‘seal’ on its own connotes limitation. When something is sealed, one of the implications is that you cannot add or remove from it; before you can do either of these, you will have to break the seal. By seals of limitation, I am referring to barriers as orchestrated by seals put in place. It refers to blockades, embargoes, padlocks and restrictions. All these connote limitation and constitute what the devil specializes in creating. Any seal of limitation cannot be a seal of God but seals put in place to block the grace of God from being experienced by the children of God. This is usually created by the devil and his agents. One of the terrible things we noticed about the seal of Nimrod is that it marginalizes people in order to subjugate and crush them to submission so that he can rule over them; so it is a seal of oppression. Anyone carrying the seal of Nimrod ends up becoming a despot.
In the Bible, we can locate a very interesting story on how some very strong barriers and limitations were conquered and removed and we can draw a lot of lessons from them. The Bible is replete with stories of how seals of limitation were confronted and conquered. We can confront the seal of limitation using the same principles we find in the word of God. A typical case can be located in Mark 2:1-5.
“Several days later he returned to Capernaum, and the news of his arrival spread quickly through the city. Soon, the house where he was staying was so packed with visitors that there wasn’t room for a single person more, not even outside the door. And he preached the Word to them. Four men arrived carrying a paralyzed man on a stretcher. They couldn’t get to Jesus through the crowd, so they dug through the clay roof above his head and lowered the sick man on his stretcher, right down in front of Jesus. When Jesus saw how strongly they believed that he would help, Jesus said to the sick man, “Son, your sins are forgiven!”” (TLB). The paralyzed man went through various barriers in order to receive his miracle. Each of these barriers constitute an evil seal because every barrier is a seal of limitation and every seal of limitation is an embargo that hinders you from moving forward so that you can remain on one spot.
One of the great revelations to learn from seals is that for every seal there is a spirit. For instance, when the seal of Nimrod is mentioned, it can also be called the spirit of Nimrod. The spirit is the enforcer of the seal.
PRAY:- Dear Heavenly Father, I worship and adore you for blessing me with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus Your Son. I use the power in the Name of Jesus Christ to utterly destroy any seal of limitation placed on my destiny path. I give You all the glory in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
