Beloved, welcome to this post. To GOD ALONE be all the Glory. Thank GOD that you are here on this page. It’s not a mistake that you are here. Our steps are ordered by the LORD. Thank YOU, JESUS. To those who are hurting, the ALMIGHTY GOD will comfort you on all sides in JESUS Name. Amen. Thank GOD for the last post – ‘Let Your Hope Be Restored.’ All Glory to JESUS. The LORD has been Gracious to us and HE Has released HIS Word of assurance to us by HIS HOLY SPIRIT. ‘And It Shall Come to Pass.’ All Glory be to JESUS. So beloved, no matter what we are going through. At this Season we should hold on to the Word of GOD that HE has released, and It shall surely come to pass. No matter the pandemonium or the storm we are going through, believe the Word HE Has released. Thank YOU, LORD for being mindful of us. Thank YOU, JESUS.

Beloved, the Word of GOD is ‘Alive and Powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.’ (Hebrews 4:12). In Psalm 107:20, we are told HE sent HIS WORD, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.’ Beloved, no matter what we are going through, there is deliverance in the Word of GOD. ‘For the wickedness of the wicked must surely come to an end.’ (Psalm 7:9).

There was a man called Simon who held the whole city of Samaria in captivity. Individuals, both small and great, rich and poor, old and young, all classes of the society, were held in bondage because they believed he had supernatural powers and proffered solutions to their problems. They believed that he had great powers from GOD. Simon had dazzled them with his magical powers. He was a sorcerer. Simon the sorcerer ‘enjoyed’ himself, whatever he told the people to do, they would do. They were under his spell and they looked up to him for solutions to their problems. Simon the sorcerer was very wealthy. Whatever he asked of them, they had to deliver for him to proffer solutions to their problems. This went on for a long time.

So, if someone is said to have solutions to people’s problems you can imagine the number of people that would surround that person. This was the case of Simon. Many people went to consult Simon the sorcerer on a daily basis and surrendered their will to his. For whatever he told them to do, they did. There are many Simon the sorcerers in different disguises all over the world. (It cannot be overstated that life is a battle but there comes an expiry date for every battle.) A day came like today – All Glory to JESUS – when the Word of GOD brought Salvation to the people of the city of Samaria. The WORD of GOD is LIGHT. The people of the city of Samaria did not know they were in great darkness, enveloped in captivity, until the Word of GOD came which is the Light.

Light and darkness can never be together. When Light comes, darkness automatically, without any fuss, disappears. It evaporates instantly. When you switch on the light, you don’t grope in darkness anymore. When the original comes, the fake is discarded. So, GOD decided to have mercy on that city of Samaria and liberate them from darkness.

Philip, the Evangelist, went to that City to preach the Word of GOD – The Word of Salvation, to tell them about JESUS our LORD and SAVIOUR. As many as believed the WORD of GOD were set free from bondages – Unclean spirits jumped out, deliverances took place. The lame walked, the blind received their sight, insanity cured, the people were set free from every form of manipulations, spells, incantations, afflictions, captivity and various forms of attacks. They were free and free indeed. (Therefore, if the SON (JESUS) makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:36). Even Simon the sorcerer whom the people previously sought after for solution believed the Word of Salvation as he was amazed with the attesting signs and great miracles.

Those who believed were now believers and they were baptized in the Name of JESUS. Peter and John, the Apostles, came to pray for the people. Hands were laid by the Apostles on the believers and they received the Holy Spirit. You can imagine the joy in that city which previously was under siege. People were no longer slaves to sin, satan and his cohorts. No more fears, anxiety, uncertainty and the likes. Hallelujah.

Simon the sorcerer wanted the Holy Spirit, but for control purposes. He still wanted to manipulate (be in control of) people’s destinies and lives. He offered the Apostles money to receive the Holy Spirit. Simon the sorcerer’s heart was not right. (LORD, let our hearts be right before YOU in JESUS Name. Amen.) Trust Peter, the Apostle, immediately he told Simon the sorcerer, ‘your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of GOD with money.’ Peter said Simon the sorcerer had no part or share in the work because his heart was not right in GOD’s Sight.’ Peter told him to repent of his evil plan and pray to the LORD to forgive him for thinking such a thing. For Simon was full of bitter envy and a prisoner of sin. Simon the sorcerer begged that they pray for him that none of those things would happen to him.
(Please read Acts 8:5-11.)

GOD’s business is not for merchandise or for control or manipulative purposes. GOD is a Rewarder. Beloved, the LORD is telling us that HIS Word shall come to pass and it is a sure assurance that we should look up to HIM ALONE, the Author and Finisher of our Faith. (Hebrews 12:2)

There will be a point in life where one is at a crossroad. One would have to decide whether to continue the journey of Faith to the Promised Land or go back to Egypt. GOD forbid we go back to Egypt. JESUS asked the twelve disciples ‘Do you also want to go away.’ Peter answered ‘LORD to whom shall we go? YOU have the Words of eternal life and we believe and know YOU are the Christ, The Son of The Living GOD.’ (John 6:66-69.)

This is a reality – no one is immune to the battles of life, but victory is assured through our LORD JESUS Christ. The Psalmist said in Psalm 66:12, ‘YOU have caused men to ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water (flood), but YOU brought us out to rich fulfillment.’

Thank YOU, JESUS. The LORD is Faithful and True.

Beloved, only GOD can give victory through our LORD JESUS Christ. The Favour of GOD brings victories for us HIS children. (Please read Psalm 44:3-8.)

Beloved, many of us are going through but assuredly we shall break through. Please do not go to Egypt, don’t go to your vomit, don’t consult Simon the sorcerer. For, he also needs Salvation. Don’t be contaminated. Stay focused on JESUS. Believe HIM – ‘And It Shall Come to Pass.’
JESUS Knows what to do (John 6:6.)

Wow Hallelujah.

Elizabeth, the wife of Zechariah the Priest, gave birth to a son in her old age. Her husband Zechariah was dumb during her conception and after she had given birth. On the 8th day, the naming of the child; the relatives were there and they wanted to call the child by his father’s name Zechariah (sounds right doesn’t it?) but the mother stood her ground and said no he shall be called John (based on the revelation they, the parents, received from the Almighty GOD.)

The relatives said that there was no one among them called by that name. So, they made signs to his father to enquire what he would have his son called. He wrote ‘his name is John.’ They all marveled.

The point here is that it is not about historical facts or occurrences in families or one’s background. It is about what The LORD has said and it must surely come to pass. (Luke 1:59-63.)

Stand your ground in spite of the multitude of voices, as Elizabeth the mother of John did, standing on the Word of GOD that was revealed to her. Beloved, seek GOD in HIS WORD no matter how terrible the challenges are.

Thank GOD. All Glory to JESUS. Thank YOU JESUS. HOLY SPIRIT we hand over to YOU.

Praise GOD ‘And It Shall Come to Pass’. Hallelujah.
