BIBLE STUDY FOR TODAY: 1 Samuel CHAPTER 15 Verse 1-35.
Today is Day 9 of our fasting and prayer but it is significant because Figure 9 is a complete spiritual cycle of growth (the gestation period of human pregnancy is 9 months). From Adam to Noah is 9 generations. From Noah to Abraham is also 9 generations. That figure is highly revered in occult circles. It is a relatively silent number but highly strategic number. It is also associated with laying foundations of buildings and rebuilding of new visions and dreams.
– figure 9 is a number depicting the customary hour of prayer.
– the 9th hour was the time of Christ death on the cross (Matt. 27:46)
– the 9th hour was the time of the prayer that led to the healing of the crippled man at the beautiful gate (Acts 3:1-3)
– the 9th hour was the time of the Cornelius vision that led to the evangelization of the gentiles (Acts 10:41-46).
– figure 9 is a number of finality judgement, so we must decree judgement on wicked powers today with our prayers.
– in Mathematics, number 9 possesses properties and powers which are not found in any other number. It is the last of the digits and thus mark the end, and it is significant of the conclusion of a math.
There is a strange case when prayers become unanswered and heaven become brass: one of the reason for such hardness is usually one careless but common and popular sin among modern Christians. We so much play with this sin and have become accustomed and familiar with it. what is this sin? It is called DISOBEDIENCE OR REBELLION! Hear: 1 Samuel 15:23:“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king”. This sin has denied many of us unknowingly the wonderful fruits answered prayers. In Isaiah 1:19:“… If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land”… and in Job 36:11:“If they obey and serve him, they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity and their years in contentment.”
On this 9th day of our fasting and prayer, as we meditate, pray and watch, we cannot but laugh at ourselves in retrospect, as we marvel at the reasons for many of our unanswered prayers. It never crossed our minds that we wallowed in disobedience and rebellion which is simply defined by the Holy Bible as WITCHCRAFT. It is impossible to deal with witchcraft when we too dwell in disobedience.
Our obedience must be complete if we must punish witchcraft disobedience. And every problem in many christian lives is always rooted in these little rebellions and ‘disobediences’. Until you deal with the internal witchcraft, the external witches and wizards will continue to have sway, hindering answers to our prayers. We have a litany of many Christians who still depend on daily horoscopes to know how to manage their daily activities, what a shame.
On this 9th day this is our divine assignment: To destroy the works of witchcraft and wickedness in our lives so we can live a triumphant Christian life, as we wear the crown of glory to celebrate God in our lives this season.
Before we go into the prayer session, let us go first before the Lord with repentance for our sins of rebellion and disobedience to the Word of God and the voice of the Holy Spirit. Let us draw grace from the throne of mercy that our obedience, to the perfect will of God for our lives may be complete, so that the God of vengeance can avenge every disobedience which aborted our miracles and blessings at one point or the other in this dying year 2011, and may, if un-repented and un-renounced keep us enslaved, if we succumb to its temptations in the new and coming year 2012.
