My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious word of God that comes to you for today, is taken from the book of Nahum 1:17, “For the wicked one shall no more pass through you, He is utterly cut off.”
In this verse God is speaking to you about the wicked one who will cause destruction to you. He is one who will plan to spoil your name and reputation. He is one who will teach you how to operate wickedly. The wicked one who will not only teach you but also lead you to wickedness, will no more pass through you as per this verse. What does this tell you, that you should never go to places where the wicked one lives. There is sayings that if you happen to come across a wicked person keep away from such kind of person. We need to keep away from the wicked one or else his wicked nature will stick on to us. He will speak in a very pleasing manner. And show to us as if He is very loving and kind and finally we will get trapped. The wicked pretend to show love and deceive us and guide us in a wrong way to commit sin. So we need to be careful with such person.
It so happened that I had been as usual for Ministry work to his church. That day I spoke on the subject of Baptism. That preaching touched his heart and as a result he repented of all his sins. And finally he came up to me. He said, ‘’ No one will enquire about me until I leave my house to the office but there was a girl who would enquire about me and my wellbeing. She would ask me whether I had eaten or whether I was doing well in life. She made me feel as if she loved me very sincerely”. But unfortunately I had fallen in the trap of the young woman who led me to wrong living.” When I questioned him about his downfall, he told me that the woman showed false love and enticed him to such an extent that he fell in her trap. So this kind of love led him to fall into sin. Be very careful and watchful about such people. Never get enticed by them. He was given good counselling. After that I prayed for him and he was baptised. He is now a child of God. Why I am saying all this is because at times the Devil will come in our route, and hit us badly. You will not know in which form He will come. The Bible says, He comes as a roaring lion as to whom he might devour. So you should not give room for such kind of wicked one or the wicked enemy. You should not give room for wicked practice, wicked conversation, wicked habits, or wicked words. That is why the word of God says, “For the wicked one shall no more pass through you, He is utterly cut off.” You should therefore submit yourself to God by saying let not the wicked one, pass through us in the future. Lord no wicked habits should be in my life. No wicked words should come out of my mouth. If you take such precautions, or steps then the wicked one will never enter into your life. Then God will destroy him completely. Once the wicked one goes out of you then you shall live a clean life pleasing unto God. The next moment God will join you.
If you hold His hands and walk, you will be successful wherever you go. Tell the Lord that you need not have anything to do with wicked life. Remove all wicked friends from me, and let me not speak any wicked words through my mouth. Commit your ways unto the Lord saying, “Lord you are enough for me.”Then God will be with you wherever you go. He will guard you and keep you from all troubles and danger. God will do great things for you.
Prayer: Lord we thank You. Lord I bless all the children who are reading this message in the name of Jesus. Lord you have said, “For the wicked one shall no more pass through you, He is utterly cut off.” As per this word of God let every child of God who are reading this message, be cleansed from all their wicked habits, wicked practice, and wicked speech, wicked thoughts, wicked looks, and from every other form of wickedness. As a result may they be blessed wherever they go. Let many good events take place in their homes. Let all barriers be broken. May the Lord do wonders beyond numbers, and miracles for His children.
In Jesus Name we pray.
