It’s God’s Time To Take Over

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - IBRU CENTRE - By Pas­tor Lazarus Muoka

BRETHREN, we have come to the point where the Lord of Host has taken over the cir­cum­stances of the af­fairs of this coun­try. At this point, we should no longer strug­gle to get what we need, but the Lord of Host has taken over with a drawn sword to en­sure no harm be­falls us.

And to let you know that He has taken over, He has brought down the thick cloud of ten­sion on the hori­zon of the coun­try. And as long as He has taken over, I want to let you know that hence­forth, things will be­come easy. What ap­peared to be im­pos­si­ble will now be­come pos­si­ble. The coun­try will ex­pe­ri­ence peace dur­ing and af­ter the elec­tion­eer­ing pe­riod.

And if we be­lieve that He is now in-charge, we ought not to be afraid of any­thing that may hap­pen again, for He is work­ing to bring His coun­sel to pre­vail in all cir­cum­stances, for His coun­sel that shall stand. Jn 5:17 says, “But Je­sus an­swered them, My Fa­ther wor­keth hith­erto, and I work.”

God is ev­ery day work­ing, up­hold­ing and gov­ern­ing all the crea­tures, and by His com­mon prov­i­dence, mak­ing them to con­cur to all the mo­tions and op­er­a­tions of na­ture. Since the cre­ation of the world, God has not re­tired from work to en­sure His peo­ple are saved. He has never ceased from pre­serv­ing and gov­ern­ing that which He has formed. Noth­ing can ex­ist with­out the con­tin­ual en­ergy of God.

As God cre­ated all things by Christ, so He sup­ports and gov­erns all by Him. As He works, Je­sus also works in us. He that is so great a worker is the Lord of all. So He works con­stantly, con­tin­u­ously, per­sis­tently and re­lent­lessly gov­ern­ing and sup­port­ing all things, com­fort­ing the wretched, de­fend­ing and ad­vanc­ing His cho­sen ones, sav­ing the lost and en­sur­ing that noth­ing be­falls His peo­ple even at this po­lit­i­cal dis­pen­sa­tion.

Who is work­ing? God is He that is work­ing. He has taken over the af­fairs of your life and the coun­try. He has started a work that will make His peo­ple to re­joice just as He did in the days of the Bi­ble.

Josh. 5; 13-15 says, “And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jeri­cho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, be­hold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our ad­ver­saries? 14 And he said, Nay; but as cap­tain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did wor­ship, and said unto him, What saith my Lord unto his ser­vant? 15 And the cap­tain of the LORD’S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou stand­est is holy. And Joshua did so.” To Abra­ham, God ap­peared as a trav­eller and to Joshua as a Man of war. The Lord ap­pears to His peo­ple what their faith needs. He drew His sword, which en­cour­aged Joshua to carry on the war with vigour. The Lord’s sword drawn in His hand de­notes how ready He is for the de­fence and sal­va­tion of His peo­ple. His sword turns ev­ery way look­ing for en­e­mies of His peo­ple.

As He takes over, our de­liv­er­ance is as­sured. Those that make void His law, say­ing, who is the Lord? What is the Almighty, that we should fear him? God is set to con­front them. Of course, man’s ex­trem­ity, whether of need or sin, is God’s op­por­tu­nity for in­ter­ven­tion. If He sent His Spirit to move upon the face of the wa­ters, should He not come when so­ci­ety is re­turn­ing to chaotic state and His peo­ple per­se­cuted? When the peo­ple of the world be­gin to ex­tremely op­press the Chil­dren of God, then the right­eous will ex­pect to see the Hand of the Lord stretched out for the re­vival of their faith, de­fend­ing the truth, and glo­ri­fy­ing His di­vine name. Beloved, God has come to take over.
