On September 22 2011 i posted a message @ http://www.facebook.com/pages/Inspired2blessSons-of-God-Mission/234356053283616
About the power of a seed, using the story of the King of Moab as a case study, and to my amazement some hours ago at a finacial Convention Pastor Chris talked about it again and shed more light on it, also God increased my Understanding of these and i humbly share this with You, am so excited about this, it is 1am but i know i just have to share this with you.
before i start say to your self “I will never be stranded in life,i will never meet a dead end, am breaking through on all side”
An interesting incidence happened in 2 Kings 3, a certain king of moab rebelled against Israel, and the King of Israel, the King of Judah and that of Edom ganged up to fight against Him. The Kings Consulted God through Elisha and God told them they will overcome, they even had a crisis of shortage of water and God miraculously Provided water for them. They were defeating Moab until something extraordinary happened.
But when they came to the tents of Israel, the Israelites came out and made a violent attack on the Moabites, so that they went in flight before them; and they went forward still attacking them; 25 Pulling down the towns, covering every good field with stones, stopping up all the water-springs, and cutting down all the good trees; they went on driving Moab before them till only in Kir-hareseth were there any Moabites; and the fighting-men went round the town raining stones on it. 26 And when the king of Moab saw that the fight was going against him, he took with him seven hundred men armed with swords, with the idea of forcing a way through to the king of Aram, but they were not able to do so. 27 Then he took his oldest son, who would have been king after him, offering him as a burned offering on the wall. So there was great wrath against Israel; and they went away from him, back to their country
2 Kings 3:24-27 (BBE)
Hmm, the king of Moab sacrified his Heir to his god for his nation not to be slaves, he gave his all!!! can you believe that this act made him win technically even after God has said the King of Israel will overcome!!!
This is incredible, it means there must be something about sacrificial giving, because the king of moab was not of God but his offering technically stopped God and his people, may be God was so amazed that a man could give such a sacrifice. Remember that Abraham also almost did this and made God not only change His mind but also Establish His blessing! and God even did the same by giving up Jesus.
and the scriptrue says for there is no respect of persons with God
Romans 2:11 (ASV),There is no favoritism with God
Romans 2:11 (HCSB).
As a God of Principle even though the King of Moab was not of Him he had to respect this act.
i must tell you in the spirit Realm their is High respect for offerings no wonder even fake gods demand it. Givers are rulers!
This means even though God is with you, you have prayed, spoken in tougues, positively confessed, fasted e.t.c, if those standing against you have made more sacrifices than you to get what you want, they may not have it but they can stop you from getting it!!!.
Have you Wondered why after doing all you know to do you still do not have a Job, have the breakthrough you long for, gotten that financial stability,gotten that scholarship, that Investor, that promotion, that Admission, that House, that spouse , why you are falling and rising spiritually e.t.c . it may be because you have not Given a Sacrificial seed, do that, give what costs you alot and sow it into the ministry where you get regular nourishment and share you testimony with me!!!.
If you do for sure you will have a testimony!
On that 22nd of september when i posted that message someone stole a sizable amount of money from me and all i had left i dropped it as a seed and that same week i got an international connection.
For along time i struggled with my spiritually life ,came out for altar calls several times and went back to my vomit after days and week, joined the work force in my fellowship in school, requested for follow up and there was still no change, i sown a seed and on top of my list was my salvation, April of that year i had an encounter with God that Changed my life , got me saved, got me instantly delivered from Weed and cigrate smoking, from sex, from alcholism and cultism affiliation and started this awesome walk.
I did this again today to put to an end some overdrawn battles.
Seeding especially the one that comes sacrifially is a very powerful weapon, infact it is an ‘odeshi”(Unstoppable in igbo language), it a finish Him Fatality move .
Ever wondered why Jesus did not return the two mites that the poor widow dropped in the temple back to her?
remember she was poor( Had very little and not even enough to eat) was a widow( did not have a supporting Husband or source for money).
it was because those two mites brought an end to her poverty!!!
Sow yours and expect a miracle.
The power of a seed is not in it size but in magnitude of the sacrifie of it’s release.
you are blessed!
