Good evening everyone and welcome to tonight’s #WordAnd Prayer Fellowship.
Our text this evening is from Revelations 5:1-10
Revelation 5:1 – 6 , 8 – 10 AMP
“I saw in the right hand of Him who was seated on the throne a scroll written on the inside and on the back, closed and sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel announcing with a loud voice, “Who is worthy [having the authority and virtue] to open the scroll and to break its seals?” And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth [in Hades, the realm of the dead] was able to open the scroll or look into it. And I began to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or look into it. Then one of the [twenty-four] elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look closely, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome and conquered! He can open the scroll and [break] its seven seals.” And there between the throne (with the four living creatures) and among the elders I saw a Lamb (Christ) standing, [bearing scars and wounds] as though it had been slain, with seven horns (complete power) and with seven eyes (complete knowledge), which are the seven Spirits of God who have been sent [on duty] into all the earth. And when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb (Christ), each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of fragrant incense, which are the prayers of the saints (God’s people). And they sang a new song [of glorious redemption], saying, “Worthy and deserving are You to take the scroll and to break its seals; for You were slain (sacrificed), and with Your blood You purchased people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom [of royal subjects] and priests to our God; and they will reign on the earth.”
Please note the bold text.
1. It requires more than a promised Word to be a performer in life. Many times, it requires authority and virtue.
2. That authority and virtue is not accessible without sacrifice – Jesus gave himself for him to possess the authority and virtue to make certain things happen.
3. Sacrifice is what opens us to dimensions of complete power and complete knowledge in the Holy Spirit for what is needed.
In essence, by the Holy Spirit we gain access to complete power and complete knowledge, which in turn makes us people of authority and virtue.
4. Reigning in the earth is as a result of TRUE REDEMPTION FROM WHO AND WHERE WE USED TO BE.
Therefore, our prayers this afternoon are these:
A. LORD, we thank you for the sacrifice of Christ Jesus by which we have access to all of YOU, for the purpose of our lives.
B. LORD, I present myself to you to FULLY redeem me from who I was, so that my past do not interfere with my present and my future
C. Now LORD, Please walk me through situations of life that you have designed to equip me for the future; present challenges that are meant to qualify me for future manifestations.
Make abundant grace available for me to go through successfully through all present sacrifices for future salvation.
We are already praying. . . .
Without grace (peace with God) there cannot glory (fulfilled words). So LORD, grant me great grace to make it to glory (the fulfillment of your words)
D. LORD, let your glory qualify me for authority and virtue to fulfill destiny on earth.
When others are not able to bring credible answers and solution, for matter of concern to heaven and earth, grant me authority and virtue to do what others could not do.
In Jesus mighty name we have prayed. . . .
One more prayer point;
E. Put everything that sorrow your heart before God and ask Him for a heavenly intervention.
In Jesus name we have prayed.
I still have a lot more things on my heart that sorrows my hear continually, I still feel like praying more about them. Let’s speak to God about these things – Spiritual and Physical matters. . .
In Jesus name we have prayed.
Now we conclude. . .
We bless the LORD for today’s meeting. I sincerely apologise we could not stream. But, there is always a way where there is a will…
The transcripts are here for you to re-read and pray deeper in your private prayers. Heaven would respond to you in Jesus name.
Our God will send men and women with authority and virtue to resolve perennial issue in our lives.
He will also send you as one with abundant authority and virtue to resolve the issue in other people’s lives.
Peace to you.
Have a blessed Sunday ahead. GOD BLESS YOU.
