40 Days of Prayer

Day 32 – 40 Days of Prayer – A Prophetic Look At The Government Shutdown

Greetings Beloveds,

Do you remember the movie the Wizard of Oz? Dorthy and her friends followed the yellow brick road to reach the Emerald City in order to meet the great Wizard of Oz. Dorthy and her friends had needs that they believed only the Wizard could fulfill.

However, much to their dismay, after reaching the Emerald City, Dorothy and her friends discovered that the Wizard of Oz was just a man manipulating and scheming behind the scene.

Ultimately, Dorthy and her friends realized that their journey to Oz had strengthened them. They had each developed within themselves what they had been seeking all along. The lion found his courage. The tin man found his heart. The scarecrow found that he always had a brain. Dorothy, woke up, and found herself back at home in Kansas. Her journey to Oz had been just a dream or was it?

It is time for us to WAKE UP!

Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain

What if someone told us that what we see going on in our government today is much like the movie, The Wizard of Oz?

What if someone told us that politics was all just smoke and mirrors and that their is someone else behind the curtain pulling the strings of our elected officials?

What if someone told us that the people who make the BIG decisions in the world have names that we will never know and faces that will remain in the shadows – orchestrating events, and manipulating circumstances in favor of the agenda of the global elite?

What if the “real powers” that controlled our government and the governments of the world were an extremely powerful network, that wield so much influence, that they control politics, the media, the music industry, the entertainment industry, the economy, what we eat, what we think, and how we should live?

What if someone told us that the government shutdown was a satanic agenda to collapse the economy and send the country into recession?

You ask, why would any one want to purposely create poverty and civil unrest?

The Answer: From the beginning of time, Satan has attempted to usurp Gods authority to create his own kingdom and establish a NEW ORDER – a new world order (Genesis 3; Isaiah 14:13).

What if someone told you that in order to establish a new order – the old order had to collapse?

New world orders are nothing new. New world orders are normally accomplished by bringing order out of chaos. It’s an old method of dominance found in the Hegelian Dialectic: CauseReactionSolution.

Throughout the ages, the enemy has mastered the art of operating behind the scenes. Like the Wizard of Oz, the stage is set. The smoke – the mirrors – the lies – to blind the masses, dull the senses, lull to sleep, and distract us with worries about our mortgages, car payments, and putting food on the table.

What if someone told us, that when the economy recovers – and it will – and the furlough has ended – and life has resumed as usual that satanic agendas would be put in place and we would never even bat an eye, because we had our eyes on the candy – not the candy man?

Saints, we must keep our eyes on Yeshua (Jesus). God is our Source and our Provider. He will carry us through the days ahead. We must pray aggressively against the evil agendas going on behind the scenes that are meant to kill, steal, cripple, and destroy this great nation. Be encouraged. We are end-times saints. What we are experiencing are the “birth pains” before the coming of the Lord. We must remain focused and pray that we escape the things that will come upon this world. Amen

John 10:10

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. “

Assignment: Yesterdays overview of the end-times was a prelude to todays message. If you haven’t read it – I would suggest taking a look at “Day 31 – An Overview of The End-Times” for a comprehensive understanding of what is taking place in our world today.

Day 31 – 40 Days of Prayer: An Overview of End-Time Prophecy

Image result for the end times

Greetings Beloveds,

Many believers simply ignore the subject of the end-times. However, I believe that when we ignore the end-times we do so at our peril. On several occasions Yeshua (Jesus) specifically spoke to His disciples about the end-times and even prepared them for what they would eventually face in their own futures.

Today, we are going to take a detailed look at Matthew Chapter 24. From the Mount of Olives Yeshua gave us a detailed prophetic discourse concerning the end-times. Many Bible scholars call (Matthew Chapter 24) The Olivet Discourse.

We are certainly living in the end-times. As end-time believers we must have an understanding of the times in which we live and the events that will take place in the latter days.

The Bible tells us that there will be war, famine, terror, and utter chaos during the end-times. Some of us will blame the Democrats and some of us will blame the Republicans for the upheaval that will play-out in society.

However, this is simply mans small way of rationalizing our present condition. Yeshua told us exactly how contentious life would become during the end-times – and why. Yeshua’s return is imminent!

Hebrews 10:37

“For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.”

Satan knows that his time is short. I believe that there has been some serious end-time demons released upon the earth. As believers, we live in this world – but we are not of this world (John 17:15-21).

We will be affected by the things that will come upon this world. However, as believers, we are protected by God. The evil one will not overtake us. The troubles of this world will not crush us. God will never forsake us. In the midst of intense darkness God’s children will experience His intense glory!

The deeper the darkness becomes the brighter God’s servants will shine. Egypt had its magicians – God had His Moses. Baal had His prophets – God had his Elijah. The Philistines had their Goliath – God had His David. When the enemy comes in like a flood the Spirit of the Lord will always lift up a standard against evil (Isaiah 59:19).

What Will Be The Sign of The End of The Age?

Matthew 24:3

“As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things happen? What will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?”

Yeshua’s disciples asked Him, “What will be the sign of the end of the age” Let’s take a detailed look at Yeshua’s response.

Matthew 24:4-5

”Yeshua answered them, “Be careful that no one leads you astray! For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah, and will lead many astray.”

Deception:

Yeshua begins by warning the disciples of deception. Deception is one of the greatest dangers that threaten believers in the end-times. We must pray continually that God keep us alert and grounded in our walk with God, so that in the end we will be found faithful.

1 Corinthians 7:25

“I give my opinion as one who has the mercy of the Lord to be found faithful.”

1 Corinthians 7:25, tells us that it is by the mercy of God that we will be found faithful – not our knowledge of the Holy Scriptures – not our intellect – But by His MERCY.

Pride is often the wedge that the enemy uses to insert error. I believe that when we remain humble God will protect us. I believe that God will trust us with even greater revelations when we are humble. But the arrogant will be swept away by deception. Let’s remain humble and teachable. We don’t know it all – neither do we have all the answers. We are dependent upon the faithfulness of God to give us His truth. Amen

Yeshua also warned His disciples that many would come in His name claiming to be the Messiah.


Throughout history there have been many individuals who were false Messiahs who deceived the Jewish people. The most famous were:
Simon bar Kokhba who led a revolt against Rome in 132 AD. In 1666,
Sabbatai Zevi led a multitude of Jews to the Middle East and ultimately converted them to Islam. During the 5th century, Moses of Crete, led a multitude of Jews into the sea and they all drowned. Many have come and will come claiming to be the Messiah.

Yeshua continues His discourse…

Wars and Rumors Wars

Matthew 24:6

“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must happen but it is not yet the end.”

Yeshua warned His disciples that the end-times will be marked by continual conflict, turmoil, and wars. Statistics claim that since WW I there has been over 80 wars throughout the world. Yet, Yeshua said that war in itself is not the sign of the end, because war will be continual until His return.

The Beggining of The Birth Pains

Now let’s take a look at the birth pains that will come upon the world in the latter days. I believe that the the upheaval that we are experiencing in society are the birth pains that preceded the coming of the Lord.

Matthew 24:6-8

“For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. But all these things are only the beginning of birth pains.”

  • Wars and Rumors of Wars
  • Nation will Rise Against Nation
  • Famine
  • Pestilence
  • Earthquakes in Diverse Places

It is interesting to note that “nation rising against nation” is much different from “wars and rumors of wars.” Ethnos is the Greek word for “nations” in which we get the word ethnicity (i.e race). In the last days, I believe that we will see an increase of genocide, ethnic cleansing, and racial unrest throughout the world between the various “ethnos” (races).

In Luke 21:11, Yeshua also tells his disciples that epidemics, terrors, and astronomical anomalies will also occur during the end-times.

Luke 21:11

“There will be great earthquakes along with famines and epidemics in various places, and there will be terrors along with great signs from heaven.”

So, Yeshua tells His disciples that when we see wars, racial unrest, famine, pestilence, various earthquakes, epidemics, pestilence, terrors, and astronomical anomalies occur simultaneouslyon a large scale – the end of the age is near.

What Will The Birth Pains Produce?

If there is going to be birth pains, there has to be a birth. So what will be born from the birth pains? Yeshua gave His disciples a clue in (Matthew 19:28):

“And Yeshua said to them, “Amen, I tell you, when the Son of Man sits on His glorious throne in the new world, you who have followed Me shall also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”

We cannot experience the “new heaven and the new earth” unless we experience a regeneration – a rebirth. I believe that the birth pains will birth the Messiah’s second coming! Messiah Yeshua will establish his kingdom visibly here on earth. The King is coming!

Let’s take a look at a few more birth pains….

Matthew 24:9-13

“Then they will hand you over to persecution and will kill you. You will be hated by all the nations because of My name.  And then many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one other.  Many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.  Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”

Persecution – Believers throughout the world are being persecuted and martyred for their faith.

The Spirit Offense – These days it has become very hard to have relationships with others because people will be easily offended. Disunity, betrayal, dishonor, and discord will be rampant, even among believers.

False Prophets – The spirit of deception will lead many to error through many false Prophets.

Lawlessness – Violence and lawlessness will abound in the last days.

The Love of Many Will Grow Cold – People will have no regard for God or their fellow man.

Enduring Until The End

We began our 40 Day Prayer journey in a posture of repentance. A repentant heart is a requirement for MERCY. The GRACE and MERCY of God is the only way we will endure the birth pains and survive the tribulation that has come upon the earth We must remain in right relationship with God.

We must remain in a posture if humility, repentance, and supplication until Messiah comes. We must pray without ceasing. We must ask God for His mercy and His protection. We must pray that we be spared from the things that will come upon this world.

And Then The End Shall Come…

After describing the birth pains, Yeshua gives a specific answer to a specific question: “What will be the sign of the end of the age?” Yeshua tells His disciples that a major sign that will precede His return is:

Matthew 24:14

“This Good News of the kingdom shall be proclaimed in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.”

It is the responsibility of EVERY BELIEVER to preach the gospel. Believers are the most significant people on earth during the end-times – not because of who we are but because of who God is and what He has called us to do.

Today the gospel is being preached all over the world through missions, social media, print media, and satellite television. I praise God for Christian satellite television. There are countless testimonies from believers in the 10/40 window (North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia) who have come to Yeshua after hearing the gospel in countries that were closed to missions. We all have our part to play in advancing God’s kingdom.

Believer’s Responsibility

2 Peter 3:11-13

“Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,  looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?  Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”

God tells us our responsibility during the end-times. We must live holy and godly lives. If our righteousness can hasten the coming of the Lord, I believe that our unrighteousness can also delay it. Therefore, Yeshua will take great care to prepare the Body of Messiah (His Bride) before His return. Also, we must be looking for the coming of the Lord. 2 Timothy 4:8 declares, that there is a reward for those who long for His appearing.

Build Up The Kingdom

There is a river flowing throughout the Kingdom of God, I believe that in the latter days, there will be a divine convergence of the various streams throughout the Body of Messiah. We have been quick to condemn believers, ministries, and leaders, that are outside of our communities. I have learned that it is best to build up the Church instead of condemning what belongs to God. God will purify His Bride. We must pray daily that God will perfect and prepare us for His glorious coming.

Ephesians 5:7

“Messiah did this so that He might present to Himself His glorious community—not having stain or wrinkle or any such thing, but in order that she might be holy and blameless.”

The Tribulation

In Matthew 24:15-28, Yeshua warns His disciples of another sign of the end times – The Tribulation. Yeshua warned His disciples of the tribulation that has and will occur. I believe that the Tribulation began in Israel many centuries ago and has spread throughout the entire world, (Matthew 24:29-31). We have been living in the end-times for a quite a long time.

Yeshua will rule and reign from Zion (Isaiah 24:23). The battle for Jerusalem is not a physical battle concerning the land, the politics, or the people. The battle for Jerusalem is a spiritual battle concerning the coming of His MAJESTY!

Yeshua Encourages His Disciples to Be Watchful

Matthew 24:32-44

Yeshua Encourages His Disciples To Be Faithful

Matthew 24:45-51(

Beloveds, we must be continually prayerful concerning the coming of the Lord. We must recognize the times in which we live. We must look at the scriptures for knowledge concerning the end-times We must look at what is happening on the earth.

Beloveds, become a student of Bible prophecy. We are not always going to get it right. However, pretending that the end-times does not exist is not the answer. When we see the labor pains come upon the earth, don’t ignore them. Dialogue with God about what is going on in the world and PRAY that we triumphantly endure until He comes – Amen.

Let’s Pray:  Let’s continue to pray in our prayer language and in our understanding. Pray for your unsaved family members to accept Yeshua (Jesus) as Messiah. Pray for protection and safety that we would overcome the things that will come upon this world.

Day 30 – 40 Days of Prayer – Prayer Focus: Spiritual Housekeeping

Greetings Beloveds,

I take great pleasure in house keeping. When the physical appearance of my home is orderly, I feel a stronger sense of God’s presence. However, when the physical appearance of my home is in disarray, life seems a bit chaotic, and it is very hard for me to connect spiritually. Perhaps it is something to that old adage: cleanliness is next to godliness.

Likewise, in the Spirit, we have to do some spiritual housekeeping and get rid of the spiritual clutter that distract us and interfere with cultivating a life that hosts the presence of God. The more activity (i.e clutter) we have in our lives, the more we open ourselves up for warfare that God did not intend for us to experience.

In The Tent – The Anointing of Jael

Like most godly women, I enjoy nurturing my family and cultivating God’s presence in my home. The FRONT LINE for spiritual battles begin in the home. The home is the front line for every ministry. This is why we see most ministry families experience warfare in their homes. When the enemy wants to destroy a ministry, he often begins by creating chaos in the family life of the clergy and the laity.

Ladies, if we desire to experience a successful home life, we need the anointing of Jael. I consider myself a woman in ministry. However, before I minister to anyone, my first ministry is to my husband. I pray for him. I speak words of life over him. I have cultivated a godly and peaceable home life where we both enjoy the presence of the Lord. Our home is our sanctuary. Our home is where we fellowship with God. Our home is where we experience the tranquility that God intended Adam and Eve to enjoy together with Him in the garden.

Jael is one of those women of the Bible who we don’t have a lot of details on. The Bible tells us that Jael was a Bedouin and the wife of Heber the Kenite. Before we go further, let’s see what was going on in Israel during Jael’s time.

Deborah The Prophetess

Israel was at war with the Canaanites. Judges 4 tells us that God, gave Israel into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan because the children of Israel were doing what was evil in His sight.

At the time, a prophetess named Deborah was judge over Israel, and people went to her with matters of justice.

Sisera was the commander of the Canaanite army. He was a powerful and cruel man who oppressed the children of Israel for twenty years. However, Deborah prophesied that Sisera would be delivered into the hands of a woman. Sisera fled on foot, as Deborah and her army pursued him.

Sisera happened to run pass the tent of Jael (a house wife). Jael saw Sisera and came out to meet him. Jael said, “turn aside, my lord,” “Do not be afraid.”   Sisera had no reason to be suspicious of Jael’s hospitality. Jael was not an Israelite. Her people, the Kenites, were at peace with the Canaanites.

Jael went on to show Sisera every possible kindness. She covered him with a rug to hide him as Israel’s army approached. When Sisera asked for water, Jael gave him milk – even better.

Sisera, enjoyed Jael’s hospitality and drifted off to sleep. While Sisera slept, Jael took her hammer and drove a tent peg trough his skull. TIP: When you are destroying the enemy’s forces through intercession ALWAYS GO FOR THE HEAD – (Gen 3:15)! Who would think that an ordinary house wife could destroy a mighty general? God uses whom He chooses and we need not ask why.

You see, Sisera was defeated before he ran pass Jael’s tent. In Judges 5:20, Deborah, gives us some prophetic insight on the battle plan that God had released against the enemies of Israel.

Judges 5:20

They fought from the heavens. The stars from their courses fought against Sisera.”

They fought from the heavens! The heavens fought against Sisera! People of God, we must learn how to fight from the heavens (Ephesians 6:12)!

Ruling In The Midst of Your Enemies

Psalms 110:1-2

“The Lord declares to my Lord: “Sit at My right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”  The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion: Saying, rule in the midst of your enemies.”

Do you want to know how to fight from the heavens and rule in the midst of your enemies?

SIT DOWN! BE STILL! BE QUIET! Stay seated with Yeshua (Jesus) in your SECRET PLACE (Ephesians 2:6). When we are experiencing warfare, we must remain seated in that heavenly place – that secret place with Yeshua who is seated at the right hand of the Father.

The Bible tells us that Yeshua is daily making intercession for us (Romans 8:34). This is how we rule in the midst of our enemies. We rule THROUGH INTERCESSION. We intercede until His scepter is released and our enemies become our footstool!

Heaven released divine reinforcement to aide Deborah as she and her army fought against Sisera. God gave Sisera over to the hands of a woman as Deborah had prophesied!

Jael, was a Bedouin. Bedouin’s are nomadic people that dwell in tents. Jael likely had extensive experience putting up tents. Jael was skilled. Perhaps, there wasn’t a sister that could wield a hammer like Jael. Jael used her God given resources. God equips His people for His work. God gives us certain skills and gifts to use them for His purpose and His glory!

Jael’s story is a metaphor for how we should fight our spiritual battles. The biggest battle we will fight in this life is the battle against sin. The great theologian, Charles Spurgeon compared Sisera to sin. Spurgeon asserted that, “we should not be content to see our sins simply fleeing from us; we should be ready to pursue them and then drive them into the ground—dead—with a nail, the way Jael did.”

God has given us the spiritual authority to defeat the enemy’s plan “over our tent” – over our families, our households, and our sphere of influence. The Word of God is the tool we can use to drive out the lies of the enemy.

The story of Jael reaches beyond her own household. Her actions affected not only her own family, but the nation of Israel as well. Her faithfulness released Israel from the oppression of the Cannanites and Sisera.

In this story, the oppression had lasted for twenty years. However, from this point on, the book of Judges records no further oppression of God’s people by the Canaanites. Israel had been delivered by the hands of a woman! You Go Girl!

Today, let us take hold of the tent pegs that God has put in our hands. Let’s allow God to reveal Himself in awesome ways in our lives bringing victory and fortitude to our TENTS. This is our DESTINY! AMEN!

Assignment:

INTERCEDE – Let’s continue to pray in our prayer language and in our understanding. I have loaded tons of topical prayer resources that will aide us in defeating those things that keep us from experiencing the FULLNESS that God has for our lives. Let’s be as bold as Jael and wield our hammer to drive out those things that affect the tranquility of our family life.

Day 29 – 40 Days of Prayer – Prayer Focus: Covenant Relationships – Raising Godly Children

Image result for arrows in the hands of a warrior

Greetings Beloveds,

Being a parent is one of the most important tasks that God can give anyone. Children are a great blessing. Through parenting, the image of God is revealed in every new generation.

Godly Parenting is Like Arrows in the Hands of a Warrior

God created children to live in a perfect world, with perfect parents, perfect friends – in a constant state of perfection. Yet, due to the fall of Adam, we live in a fallen world. Our desire to live in perfection remains a part of our nature. We seek perfection, but we seldom find it. We seek a sweet life. However, this life will always have a little bitterness to it. This world is not our home.

However, your tasks as parents is to teach your children to hold onto and pursue their ideals while accepting, forgiving and redeeming the imperfections they encounter in themselves, others, and the world around them. Your children will need a strong character to face reality, to handle it with grace and to overcome the vicissitudes of life.

Like arrows in the hands of a warrior, your goal as a parent is to integrate grace and truth in the midst of a chaotic world that leans towards darkness rather than light.

Grace establishes and maintains godly virtues while truth adds direction for the growth and structure to a child’s behavior and performance. Grace lets a child know he/she is loved. Truth guides the child on what to do and what to become.

The Bible describes God characteristics of grace and truth, mercy and righteousness. God desires for us to walk in these qualities as well. These qualities sustain our relationships and guides us to safety and godly living. No one is born with these qualities fully developed. We are only born with the potential for these qualities.

Parents are called to cultivate, develop, and nurture godly potential. Godly potential can become reality. To develop means, “to cause to grow or expand.” It is the parents role to help children to grow and expand their capacities to walk in grace and live in truth.

Your child’s spiritual life is a fundamental part of a total character development. Children demand that life adapt to them, while mature adults adapt themselves to life.

God has designed your child – and reality – to operate in certain ways within certain parameters. Finding and responding to God’s statutes and ways becomes the key to growing up. The spiritual dimension of life is therefore the most important character capacity of all. Your job as a parent is to help your child to see his life as oriented around God’s realities and to live out those realities in daily existence.

You cannot separate your child’s spiritual life from the rest of his life. It was meant to be integrated into all the aspects of their relationships and tasks. Spiritual growth involves much more than religious training: it involves helping the child understand that they have a purpose and that the reason they exist is to glorify God. Life begins with a relationship, and spiritual life is no exception. Parents must help their children cultivate a relationship with God.

Raising great children is a goal that is both overwhelming and frightening for many parents. The responsibility of someone’s life in your hands, knowing your own failings, can make anyone anxious and unsure. However, remember that God chose you to be your child’s parent. God chose you to be His “hands and feet” in dispensing His grace and truth to your child.

You have been called with a holy calling. God is helping, guiding, and supporting you. God trusts you with the child that He has given you, and He has equipped you for the task. You are a warrior and your children are like arrows in your hands.

Day 28 – 40 Days of Prayer – Prayer Focus: Covenant Relationships – The Family

Shabbat Shalom Beloveds,

God loves the family. God’s original design for the family was created when He established the marriage of a man and woman as a physical representation of His love for His Bride (Believers) and our love an affection towards God. Through this union, husband and wife would raise up godly children. Therefore it should come as no surprise that the devil would try to undermine the family.

Sadly, when thinking about family, many don’t have great memories. In the Scripture, there are about only a few examples where families were not laden with dysfunction (Genesis 1–2 thru Revelation 21–22).  Even the scriptures show the devastating effects of sin on the family through many tragic stories.

Adam and Eve sinned. Adam responded by blaming his wife. They parented two male children, and one of the sons killed the other. Abraham, God’s chosen man, married two wives, and he eventually kicked one wife and her child out of the house. Jacob had several wives. His wives envied one another, and so did their offspring. Jacob’s twelve sons eventually sold their younger brother into slavery. David also espoused many wives. His son violated his sister. Then Absalom killed his brother Amnon. Later, Absalom tried to kill David, his father.

When we consider this biblical narrative, we see many family relationships that were broken by sin.

Our stories are no different; sin still destroys family relationships, and therefore we don’t have great models of God’s design. God loves families. Satan always hates what God loves.

2 Timothy 3, tells us that in the last days there will be an attack on society. Therefore, we see such enormous destruction in the families of our nation today.

However, families that are framed by God’s word are able to stand in the authority of the scriptures against all works of darkness.  Today and every day let us look to God for help in cultivating a bountiful family life.

Day 27 – 40 Days of Prayer – Prayer Focus: Covenant Relationships – Marriage

Greetings Beloveds,

Love has been the favorite subject of artists and poets throughout the ages. However, God created the greatest love story of all time. The Bible, tells of God’s love for humanity. God’s love is expressed through His covenant relationship with mankind. This covenant relationship is designed for mutual blessings. Through our covenant relationship with God we express our love, commitment, and devotion towards Him. Likewise, through this covenant relationship, God expresses His love, commitment, and affection towards us.

Today, we are going to look at a unique kind of covenant relationship called “marriage.” God created marriage to mirror the beautiful union that He established with His Bride (Believers).

Satan’s Assignment Against Marriage

Satan hates marriage. Satan hates the marriages of believers in particular. Marriages among believers are powerful displays of God’s covenant. Satan aims to destroy godly marriages, because such opposition will hinder the witness of Messiah to the world through godly marriage.

In Genesis 3, Satan entered the garden of God to oppose his Creator and to destroy the first marriage. Satan deceived Eve and tempted Adam to rebel. This rebellion brought discord to the universe and to the marital union.

Adam and Eve would have become the progenitors of covenant blessings by spreading blessings to every generation. However, the first husband and wife were cast out of Eden and cursed.

Marriage would be characterized by disharmony as the two sinner’s fought for dominion in their relationship. However, God promised this conflict would end when Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah would crush Satan’s head and forever render him powerless through His shed Blood on Calvary.

The Covenant of Marriage

To counter Satan’s attack we must understand God’s design for marriage, Satan’s strategy against it, and how to stand firm against his attacks:

Covenant relationships bring covenant blessings. In fact, the concept of covenant is the key to understanding all relationships with God, our families, our friends, our co-laborers, and especially our spouses. God entered a love relationship with us by establishing a covenant with us that includes sonship, good health, and provision. All that we enjoy in life has been established through our covenant relationship with God.

At the time of creation, God saw that it was not good for man to be alone, so God created woman out of man and entered man into a covenant relationship with woman. Marriage is a foundational institution that pre-dates all other institutions. The human existence depends on marriage and the family for its survival. Marriage is of divine origin. God created it. God designed it. God established it, and God defined its parameters.

The marriage relationship was designed to be a loving, caring, respectful, and intimate relationship. When the man and the woman became “one flesh” in covenant relationship, the man was given the responsibility to lead his family in providing and making rational decisions; while the woman’s responsibilities would be toward nurturing the family.

Importantly, since the woman was originally a part of man, we find that while there are differences in character / purpose, we find that in terms of bearing God’s image, men and women stand before God: Equal in value – Equal in dignity – Equal in worth.

God established marriage as a permanent relationship – the union of two separate people – a man and a woman – into “one flesh.” “One flesh” means the “fusion” of two distinct elements into one. A man and a woman who have become “one flesh” under God’s design form a marriage which cannot be separated without suffering great damage or even destruction. Thus, marriage is an irrevocable commitment of unconditional love.

Covenant Marriage Involves Three Distinct Components:

Leaving: Friends, parents, location, geography, becomes SECONDARY. Relationship to spouse: PRIMARY.)

Cleaving: Joining together having one mind, heart, focus, and agenda.

Becoming One Flesh: Becoming one intimatly, spiritually, physically and emotionally – to be understood and love.

Because marriage is a covenant and not merely a contract…

Divorce Is Not An Option: (God hates it! However, there are Biblical grounds…)

Malachi 2:14

“Yet you ask, Why does He reject it? Because the Lord was witness [to the covenant made at your marriage] between you and the wife of your youth, against whom you have dealt treacherously and to whom you were faithless. Yet she is your companion and the wife of your covenant.”

Adultery Is A Serious Covenant Breaking Offence:

Proverbs 2:16-19

“[Discretion shall watch over you, understanding shall keep you] to deliver you from the alien woman, from the outsider with her
flattering words, Who forsakes the husband and guide of her youth and forgets the covenant of her God. For her house sinks down to death and her paths to the spirits [of the dead]. None who go to her return again, neither do they attain or regain the paths of life.”

Sex Before Marriage Is A Violation Of The Marriage Covenant:

Hebrews 13:4

“Let marriage be held in honor (esteemed worthy, precious, of great price, and especially dear) in all things. And thus let the marriage bed
be undefiled (kept undishonored); for God will judge and punish the unchaste.”

Same-Sex Relationships Are Forbidden:

1 Corinthians 6:9

“Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived
(misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality.”

The covenant of marriage is the single most important human bond that holds all of God’s work on the planet together. It is no small wonder that the Lord is passionate about the sanctity of marriage and the stability of the home. This covenant of marriage is based on the covenant God has made with us. Through God’s power our covenant of marriages are protected against the forces of darkness that would destroy homes and ruin lives.

God wants us to have great marriages and families. Let’s conclude our lesson today with some simple marriage tools that will help keep our marriages healthy and strong:

Continue Your Courtship:

1 Peter 4:8

“Above all things have fervent love for one another, for ‘love will cover a multitude of sins.”

Romans 12:10


“Be kindly affectionate to one another … in honor giving preference to one another”

Successful marriages don’t just happen; they must be developed. We must keep our love for one another growing by expressing love to one another other daily. We should always try to “out love” one another.

Remember That God Joined You Together In Marriage:

Matthew 19:6

“Therefore what God has joined together, let no man separate.”

We must never forget that God Himself joined us with our spouses. God has fit us perfectly with the right partner that will complement and complete us.

Never Go To Bed Angry With One Another:

Ephesians 4:26

Do not let the sun go down on your wrath”

Ephesians 4:32


“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you”

To remain angry over hurts and grievances—big or little—can be dangerous. This is why God said to let our anger cool before going to bed. The wrong kind of thinking and attitudes can destroy our marriages. We must be big enough to forgive and to say, “I’m sorry” and gracious enough to admit a mistake when we make it.

Keep God The Center Of Your Home:

Psalm 127:1

“Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it”

Proverbs 3:6

In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths”

This really is the greatest principle, because it’s the one that enables all the others. The vital ingredient of happiness in the home is not in diplomacy, strategy, or our effort to overcome problems, but rather living in a union with God. Homes filled with God’s love will keep ungodly influences out and will invite all the fullness that God has for our families. Let’s continue to put these principles to practice so that we can always experience the beautiful marriages that God desires.

  • Pray with one another
  • Communicate effectively with one another
  • Respect one another
  • Love one another
  • Be temperate with one another
  • Speak kindly to one another

Day 26 – 40 Days of Prayer – Prayer Focus: The Efficacy Of The Blood of Yeshua

Greetings Beloveds,

The scriptures declare that there is power in the Blood of Yeshua (Jesus)! Yeshua shed His Blood for us that we might live a victorious and overcoming life.

Today, let us take a fresh look at the efficacy of the Blood of Yeshua and how His Blood not only provides forgiveness for sins but offers peace, healing, protection, and victory for every area of our lives.

The Blood Of Yeshua Is Necessary For Rconciliation With God.

Eph. 2:13 

“But now in Yeshua you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Messiah.”

The scriptures declare that Yeshua’s Blood reconciled our relationship with God. Rconciliation and Redemption both carry the idea of “buying back” humanity. The Blood of Yeshua was the only price that could redeem man, as it was understood (blood for blood), in the breaking of any blood covenant.

Yeshua’s Blood Redeems Us From Sin. 

1 John 1:7

“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Yeshua His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

Ephesians 1:7

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.”

Yeshuas’ Blood Sanctifies And Makes Us Whole.

Hebrews 13:12

“That He might sanctify the people with His own blood…”

Yeshua’s Blood Provides For Bold Access Into God’s Presence. 

Hebrews 10:19-23

“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Yeshua, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful” 

Yeshua’s Blood Brings Peace To Troubled Hearts and Minds. 

Colossians 1:20

“Having made peace through the blood of His cross.”

Yeshua’s Blood Silences The Accuser

Hebrews 12:24

“The voice of the Blood of Yeshua, speaks better things than that of Abel.”

Yeshua’s Blood Heals Us and Delivers From All Troubles

Isaiah 53:5

“But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are
healed.”

Now let’s take a deeper look at the Scriptural grounds which prove that we have the legal right to appropriate the Blood of Yeshua against all attacks of the enemy that come our way.

Hebrews 2:14

“That through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”

Colossians 1:13

“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood…”

Colossians 2:15

“Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”

1 John 3:8

“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.”

Revelation 12:11

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

Acts 20:28

“Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.”

Let’s Pray:

Heavenly Father, I come before You in Yeshua’s ’ name. Father God, thank You that Yeshua died for me to have complete and total access to You, and to everything You are. Now, Yeshua is seated at Your right hand daily intercededing for our cause.

Father God, I now appropriate everything Yeshua gave His life for to manifest in my life: Healing, Protection, Peace, Provision, and VICTORY. Let Your Kingdom come and Your will be done today just as Your will is done in heaven.

Father, You are my Provider, Healer, and Protector. You have an abundance of healing, provision, and protection for me in Heaven. So Father, in Yeshua’s name, I am asking that You provide abundantly for my needs today. (Describe your specific needs.)

Thank You, Father God, for providing all my needs. Thank You for the Blood of Yeshua that has freed me from every trap of the enemy. In His precious name I pray. Amen.

Assignments:

The Blood of Yeshua was shed for You. We can either stand afar off or appropriate the Blood of Yeshua in our daily lives. Whether we choose to approach the Blood of Yeshua or not His Blood is speaking for us in Heaven (Hebrews 12:24)!
