THE CROSS: A SYMBOL OF DELIVERANCE FROM THE WORLD V
Jer. 27:18 says, “But if there be prophets, and if the word of the LORD be with them, let them now make intercession to the LORD of hosts, that the vessels which are left in the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah, and at Jerusalem go not to Babylon.” Babylon is the world system, the world order. Babylon has been judged. Babylon will sink. Let us break away from Babylon. Pray that the Church will break away from Babylon because Babylon has encroached into the Church and taken away very precious vessels. The Church stopped raising disciples but instead started raising “billionaires”.
Jesus did not die to make you a billionaire; he died to give you life. He died to give you a future and a hope, that is why he is our blessed hope, he is our lively hope. We were not redeemed with silver and gold (perishable things), we were redeemed with the precious, sinless blood of Jesus Christ. May you not forget this all the days of your life in the mighty name of Jesus. May you not chase things that should chase you and chase it into hell in the name of Jesus.
We are in this world but we are not called to be of the world. The only way you can be in the world and not be of the world is if your connection is right with God. The only viable prescription for divine connection is the cross. ‘Take me to the cross, I’ll find my way home’. Ensure that you visit the cross daily. That is how to be a disciple. That is the place to crucify self. That is the place to judge the flesh.
The crucified way is the way to heaven. There is no other prescription. If you want to have comprehensive success, if you want to succeed here and hereafter, the prescription is still the cross. The Bible says, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36).
- Lord, please help me. Have mercy on me. Is there any way that I have deviated? Is there any way that I have missed it? Is there any way that I have derailed? Please re-direct me in the name of Jesus. Lord, I return to the cross, I return to you.
- Heavenly Father, in any way that I have missed your mark, I am sorry. I confess that Jesus Christ is the only way to you. Lord, establish me in the way in the name of Jesus. Make it impossible for me to miss the way. May I never derail in the name of Jesus.
- Deliver me from the deception that is in the world. Deliver me from the evil seal of Lucifer. Grant me the grace to take up the cross and follow Christ according to his terms.
- Lord, any time my will crosses with your will, grant me grace to surrender to your will in the name of Jesus Christ. Grant me grace to proclaim like your Son did that the prince of this world cometh he will not find any of his property in me in the mighty name of Jesus.
- I ask that you roll away every seal Lucifer – deception, pride, stealing, and perversion. Roll them away in the name of Jesus.
- Grant me grace to walk in comprehensive dominion and to enjoy comprehensive success here and hereafter in Jesus name.
