Topic: OUR PRISON GATES MUST OPEN
Bible Reading: Acts 12:1-10
📖1….”Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
📖2….And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
📖3….And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
📖4….And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
📖5….Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
📖7….And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
📖10….When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.”
🔥Apostle Peter was sent to prison because of the nonchalant attitude of the Church of then. Today, same behaviour is playing out in the Church. Many Church members today (as was in the early Church) don’t care what is happening to another member. When James was killed by Herod to vex the Church, nobody challenged him in Acts 12:1-2. Since no Jew coughed and the Church was quiet, he proceeded in verse 3, arrested Peter and dumped him in the prison.
🔥🔥Brethren, I want us to know that every step taken by the enemy against a particular denomination or Christian, is targeted against the universal body of Christ. As that victimized congregation or believer goes down, it is getting the enemy closer to your congregation and mine. It is high time all living Churches became their brother’s keepers.
🔥🔥🔥But unfortunately for Herod, he arrested Peter at the wrong time. He took him at the time when the blood of Jesus was invoked at Easter. A period of National Communion in the entire Jewish land. When the then Church realized their lost because of the lackadaisical attitude they put up during James’ arrest and death, they rose up in prayers for Peter. Immediately Heaven came to the rescue of Peter, and Herod was eaten by worms in Acts 12:23. Beloveth, as the prayer of the Church at Easter made Herod to lose the battle against Peter, so all our enemies will either come against us late, or at the wrong time and pay with their own lives in Jesus’ name.
🙏Command every spiritual Herod on rampage to have you arrested, to be stricken with blindness like the army of Syria in 2Kgs 6:18, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏My Father, my Father, release the Spirit and Power of your armoury in heaven, to come down to defend every Church under satanic affliction in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Oh Lord, release your spiritual thunder to strike open, every gate erected against me, in Jesus’ name.
