TOPIC: Locating the Root
Mark 7:33“And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;”
2 Kings 2:19-22, Joshua 6:26
OUTLINE: One of the weapons that God has given to us to solve the problems of life is the uncommon weapon called knowledge. No matter how tough a particular problem is, knowing what to do and making use of the knowledge will enable you to overcome the problem.
When you tackle problems from the surface the problem will remain stubborn. The moment you locate the root, you will score easy and cheap victory over the situation. A certain man lost his five children and wife in one day. He went to a powerful herbalist for retaliation and the herbalist said, “Sorry, I have looked at this thing and I cannot do it. From what I can see, the only group of people who have the capacity to break this kind of thing and to retaliate are those of the church by the UNILAG gate. Go there.” The man came to see me and said, “Sir, a herbalist said that I should come here.” So, the herbalist could see what many Christians cannot see.
An invisible force may control or destroy somebody’s destiny, future and progress, if the person is under a curse. When Elisha came out from where he received double portion of power, the people of Jericho rushed to him and said, “Sir, the situation of this place is pleasant…: but the water is bitter and the ground does not yield fruit.” Why did they go to Elisha? It was because they thought that the anointing of God upon him could break that curse. Elijah did not break it before his translation. The man who issued the curse was Joshua, when he said, after the conquest of Jericho. “Woe unto that man that will rebuild this city. When he is laying the foundation, his first son shall die and when he completes it, his last son shall die” (Joshua 6:26).
Four hundred years later as recorded in I Kings 16:34, it happened just like that. Now they wanted the curse upon Jericho to be broken. It was Elisha who broke it. I pray that every old curse under which that you are labouring, shall be broken today, in Jesus’ name. These people chose Elisha because his anointing was comparable to that of Joshua.
So, if a powerful native doctor puts a curse upon somebody, he or she would need a person with a higher anointing to break it. If you can identify the problem and attack it from the root by putting salt therein, the water of your life will be healed.
You need the vitamin of holiness. Purity gives power to your prayers, gives you confidence to confront the enemy and ensures that no wicked power tampers with your destiny.
John the Baptist arrived very late but he shook Israel, this day your God will do the same thing for you.
HYMN – I come to the garden alone
I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.
He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.
I’d stay in the garden with Him
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.
1. Where is the Lord God of Elijah, arise and disgrace my disgrace, in the name of Jesus.
2. Where is the Lord God of Elijah, arise, pursue my pursuers, in the name of Jesus.
3. Where is the Lord God of Elijah, arise, divide my Jordan, in the name of Jesus.
1. Where is the Lord God of Elijah, arise and make me a mysterious wonder, in the name of Jesus.
2. Where is the Lord God of Elijah, arise and make my way plain before my face, in the name of Jesus.
3. Where is the Lord God of Elijah, arise and empower me for uncommon breakthroughs, in the name of Jesus.
4. Where is the Lord God of Elijah, arise and scatter every Jezebel assigned against me, in the name of Jesus.
