Word From The Father
If you see the wicked prosper around you, envy them not. Envy them not because they’re living their lives. They’re living their lives while you live yours. Nobody can live your life with theirs. Your life is knitted together in Me. Whichever situation you may find yourself, give Me the glory because I have a good plan for you. You don’t know what tomorrow has in stock for you. You don’t know the kind of plan I have for you. Just lean on Me. Focus your attention on Me alone. I will carry you through. I will neither leave you nor forsake you. I Am the Almighty God. I Am the Originator. I Am the Great I Am That I Am. I Am the Authority. I Am God of peace. My peace shall surround you anywhere you go.
When My children sold My son Joseph as a slave, did I abandon him? They thought they sold him, but they enjoyed the work of their hands while he watched. No condition is permanent! If you know how to do evil, you don’t know how to do it more than Me because I Am the One that created it. I formed light and darkness. I created prosperity, and I created disaster. Nobody understands My ways, but I understand Myself. Therefore, let the wicked continue to do their wickedness while you continue to live in My fear. Leave them alone because that’s what they choose to do. Do not envy them because they’ll all fade away like smoke.
When I sent My son Moses back to Egypt, did anyone kill him? When he was afraid and ran away because he killed an Egyptian, why didn't they kill him when they saw him? Have they forgotten what he did to one of the Egyptians? They didn’t forget! But why didn’t they touch him? They wouldn’t dare it because My fear was in him. I turned him to terror in their presence. They were afraid of him even before I began to perform wonders through him. They could only speak and plan, but they wouldn’t dare execute whatever they plan because they would die. I Am the God of Terror. Anyone that crosses My path will die.
If a man builds a new house today, what will happen to it after twenty years? If a man buys a new car today, what will happen to it after twenty years? If you eventually build a house and buys a car, what will he say? Yours is the latest while his own is outdated. Twenty years ago, he was a local champion; now he’s like a man living inside a hut. He cannot speak anymore because your level has passed his level. Once upon a time, he was mocking you, but now, he cannot mock you anymore because he knows you’re higher than him. This is what I can do! Unfortunately, all of you don’t give Me the chance to glorify Myself in you. You always envy whatever you see. Will you tell somebody to give you his life so you can live it? Even if he agrees, it’s a borrowed life, not yours. The one I prepared for you to live is different from his own. Everything about you comes from Heaven while he is of this Earth. Therefore, don’t envy him.
Many of you are there in the church, whenever you see the prosperity of others, you’ll get carried away. Why do you look at other people’s clock to judge yours? Your life is intact in Me. As long the breath of life lives in you, you have hope of a better tomorrow. That’s why I always stress on Heaven, Heaven, Heaven. If your heart is focused on Heaven, even if I bless you with the things of this Earth, nothing would take Heaven away from you. This is what I want from all of you. I have blessed many of you, and the blessing took your heart away. I don’t want to lose all My children. Therefore, whichever way I want your life to be, accept it and carry on in your journey. If you end well in Me, I will reward you more than you can ever imagine.
When a baby is born, he knows nothing about his future even though it is knitted together in his Spirit. As he grows up, everything will begin to fall into place. If he commits any sin, the enemy will take his blessing far away from him. However, if he goes back to his Creator early, he will retrieve his blessing. Woe unto the man who looks at the wealth of his friend to judge his life because death will visit him early. No man has control over his destiny, but the Almighty has programmed how the life of individual would be. However, sin can reprogram a man’s life.
The Father knows the heart of every man and knows what goes on inside the church. He hates favouritism. He wants every soul inside the church to be treated equally. Whichever position you may find yourself, either high or low, count yourself that all of you are equal for the sake of Jesus Christ and Heaven. Nobody came to this Earth on his own accord, but Jehovah God Almighty has fashioned the path of every man as He wanted it. The church is far from the truth, and everyone envies each other. Brother Andrew wants to be like Brother Peter. He wants to have everything like Brother Peter. Did God create him to live like Brother Peter? Even Brother Peter himself isn’t humble. He loves showing off his wealth in the church. He loves praises from men. This is what happens in the church that gave Satan the room to cause so much confusion. The youths now believe Christianity is all about being wealthy. Therefore, they don’t mind whatever comes their way. They grab every opportunity, either genuine or not.
The Bible says in the Book of Job 5:2 that, “Resentment kills a fool, and envy slays the simple.” The Bible says again in the Book of Proverbs 3:31-35 that, “Do not envy the violent or choose any of their ways. For the Lord detests the perverse but takes the upright into his confidence. The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous. He mocks proud mockers but shows favour to the humble and oppressed. The wise inherit honour, but fools get only shame.” Proverbs 23:17 says, “Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord.” Proverbs 24:1-2 says, “Do not envy the wicked, do not desire their company; for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble.” Psalm 73:1-5, and 16-20 say, “Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold, for I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong. They are free from common human burdens; they are not plagued by human ills. When I tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny. Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin. How suddenly are they destroyed, completely swept away by terrors! They are like a dream when one awakes; when you arise, Lord, you will despise them as fantasies.”
As Christians, if you see the prosperity of others, praise God for their lives and move on with your life. Their destiny doesn’t tie to yours. Your destiny is hidden in the blood of Jesus Christ. When the appointed time of God comes, He will surely lift you up. The Bible says in the Book of Jeremiah 29:11 that, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”” God has a good plan ahead for you. Therefore, bend low and see what the Father will do in your life. I pray for you today that Jehovah God will keep you and guide you throughout your life in Jesus name. Amen!
