Dealing with the enemy of Egypt: With Rev. Obi Peters

Sunday 2nd Service:  | 23rd June, 2019 | 8:30am


Text: Genesis 12:1-3

God’s promise was for Isaac not for Hagar’s son Ishmael. The promise was not that Isaac would come from the blood of Pharaoh but Abraham. Anything outside that will constitute problem because Isaac will not be the child of Israel but of Pharaoh. Never, you allow emotion play over your prophecy. Emotion is an enemy of prophetic fulfillment. God has made a promise to Abraham that anyone that curses him will be cursed, and anyone that blesses him will be blessed. Abraham allowed his emotion to swallow the grace behind the prophecy that he carried by saying that Sarah was his sister when he appeared before Pharaoh. The person you knew from the

beginning must not end with you. It is not a must that you begin with a person and end with him; Lot began with Abraham but did not end with him. Many of us are sleeping with pharaoh and not bringing forth Isaac. Be careful of the man of Egypt that sleeps with you.

Never, you allow emotion play over your prophecy. Emotion is an enemy of prophetic fulfillment.

 

Read>>>Gen 15:1-5

“And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house [is] this Eliezer of Damascus?” (Genesis 15:2KJV)

Any prophecy that lacks service on the altar will not go far. The backbone of prophecy is the altar. For every spoken word, there is a time. If you run faster than God you will miss it. Prophecy will not always work your way because it is not your idea but God’s own. It is thus sayeth the Lord not you. In the eyes of men it might be too delaying. Prophecy from God will leave you with neither questions you can’t answer nor men. Your life is not worth living for anybody; but worth living for your prophecy because your prophecy is your future. 10years have passed and the promised child is not forth coming and Abraham was worried.

And, behold, the word of the LORD [came] unto him, saying, “This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.” (Genesis 15:4).

Smartness, education and age are not the things that bring about prophecy fulfillment. If you try to help God, you will dig a pit for yourself.

Any prophecy that lacks service on the altar will not go far.

Read>>>Gen 16:1-5

If not for Sarah’s case, the name Hagar wouldn’t have been known in the bible. Never you look down or despise your mistress no matter her mistakes. Hagar despised her mistress. There was only one problem Hagar had; that was, lack of submission, because if she had submitted, she would have retained her place. So, when God brings you around Egypt, be careful to learn the right lessons and leave the wrong ones.

Everything that happens around you is for your prophecy or against you. So, stop fighting men. There is a prophecy spoken about you. Any man anywhere fighting Apostle Obi Peters and thinks he is fighting this commission is fighting himself.

“And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south.” (Genesis 13:1KJV)

The life of Lot and his prosperity was tied to Abraham but he didn’t know. How do you know Lot? Lot is a man whose life is centered on what he can get now. He is a man that has lust. Abraham had all, Lot also had too for doing nothing but following. If Lot has not despised Abraham, he would have seen Abraham as his family; because he was saying, let him go and have his own, how long will I serve. Prophecy does not give you benefit from the beginning. The word of God has never said that your beginning shall be plenty but rather, that thy beginning shall be little but thy end shall be great. Now because Lot knows the weaknesses and shortcomings of Abraham, even when there was problem he refused to control it. Lot was not a carnal man but a spiritual man. Men who live by lust will end up limited. Lot saw the beauty of Sodom and rushed in and lost everything. He entered Sodom with plenty but came out with nothing. I pray for you today, may Sodom not reduce you and may lust not deceive you.

Gen 14:14 read>>>

“And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained [servants], born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued [them] unto Dan.” (Genesis 14:14KJV)

There are many men that want to serve but don’t want to be trained. Every assignment is meant for the trained not hired servants. The training you are getting today is arming you for tomorrow. If you overlook and under rate your training, you cannot miss the rain or flood that will come. The training may be hard but it will pay you in the future. The glory attached to you as a trained servant is that when the spoil comes, you will benefit from it.

There are many men that want to serve but don’t want to be trained. Every assignment is meant for the trained not hired servants.
