Theme: THE SIEGE IS OVER
Text: Isaiah 40:1-2
“Comfort ye, comfort ye my people saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord’s hand double for all her sins”
These are prophetic words for those who believe; words of comfort and assurance in time of battle. This message which prophet Isaiah gave many years ago has come to you today. It is left to you to believe. He who receives a prophet will receive the rewards of a prophet. If you believe these words today, God is going to reward you with its fulfilments. We all need the word of comfort in all that we are passing through. We need the words of comfort to be able to face the very many uncertainties we face on daily basis..
I do not want us to forget that the message of prophet Isaiah went to people who were suffering as a result of their sins. Our God is God of justice, He will not tolerate sin, yet His mercies endures forever. In judgment He always remembers mercy. This was why after the message of judgment there comes prophecy of mercy. The message is this; in your siege I will show you mercy.
The siege will be over. The siege will not last forever. In God’s eyes, your problem is like a grass, your enemies are like grasses they have short time to torment you, don’t give up!. The siege is already over. Believe it and it will manifest.
Beloved, as big as your problem may seem, as dry as your wilderness may be, as lonely as your exile may appear, they will not last forever.
