HOW DO YOU PLEAD

TEXT: Romans 3:4

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

MESSAGE

Many people have hardly experienced any benefit of salvation here on earth. The testimonies of Christ is never confirmed in their lives. They’re still sick, experience demonic oppression, financial challenges etc. This to them, the Word of God seems them as nothing but emotional massage to make them feel good because they’ve hardly experienced what says. Oh that they may just understand that life is like a court room. Satan is the accuser of the brethren (Rev. 12:10). He knows that the christian is delivered from his authority (Col 1:12&13). So his efforts is an attempt to build a stronghold of doubt in your heart against the word of God (God’s testimony) which can build you up and make you possess your possession (Acts 30:32). The devil wants you to ask, if God be for me, why am I passing through all these? If I be delivered from the powers of the devil, why are demons still oppressing me in my dreams? Why am I still sick and poor? Why am I still struggling from ancestral curses and the powers of village witches?

The whole issue rests on, whose report shall you believe? The good news of God’s salvation or the devil’s bad news of your challenges? By your circumstances the devil is showing you your charge sheet. Your challenges are his evidence. The doctor’s report; your depleting bank statement of account; etc is his documentary evidence. Your nightmares, omens and demonic activities are the oral testimonies of his hired demonic witnesses. All these are to convince you that you are under his dominion and that the cross achieved nothing for you! All he wants to get from you is a plea of “GUILTY”. You do that when you agree with the devil and voice out your circumstances

Some people don’t understand this and they keep on speaking as their circumstances dictate. They think they are being sincere. No! They just sealed their misfortunes with their own words. No matter what the devil or circumstances bring your way, it is an allegation waiting for your plea.

“By thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned” (Matt. 12:37).

So what is your plea? If you corroborate your feelings with your words, then you are condemned to it because you have just pleaded guilty as charged! But if you plead that you are not guilty; if against the allegation of sickness, you plead that by the stripes of Jesus you were healed, you will be justified and sickness will loss its hold.

No matter what your feelings, circumstances or experience are, look out for what God says about you and your situation. Believe it and confess it with confidence. It may not be enough just to declare the word of God once. You have to insist on what you are saying. Insisting shows that you are not guessing. It shows that you are sure. Your salvation shall manifest and shine forth if you don’t give up saying God’s word with confident assurance!

PRAYER

Thank you Father for your word that is able to build me up and give me my inheritance

I refuse to believe the testimony of the devil. I believe and receive God’s testimony

The word of God is working in my life and destiny

The word of God prevails in my life in Jesus Name

I command the false testimonies of darkness to disappear from my life in Jesus Name
