THE GOOD NEWS BEARER 

"What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; and what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the housetops." ~ Matthew 10:27

Deborah Toyin Daniel

Deborah "Toyin" Daniel is an Evangelist, a Missionary, and Christian Author. She grew up in a strict religious household but found Christ on her own, when it became clear to her that she had no relationship whatsoever with Him in spite of her strict upbringing, and had no purpose in life.  Deborah surrendered her life to Christ in 1992, but kept running from her calling owing to the severe trials she faced and the cares of the world, until she had a personal encounter with Him in 1999. She steps out of her comfort zone as led to fulfill her calling.  She also speaks openly about her childhood difficulties and the struggles she has had in life, to testify of the mercy of God and His awesome power. For more messages and a heart talk on living a fulfilled life in Christ, get the book, Walk the Winning Walk - free and available to new converts/believers in Christ from Divine Literature International.

THE UNHEARD "AMEN"

October 28, 2015

The Bible says the fervent prayer of the righteous is powerful and very effective (James 5:16). This means that when believing spouses, family members, friends, associates etc., pray, the Lord listens and hearkens to their voices.  He loves to hear from them.  One Word of prayer they utter on your behalf can change your life.  However, if you are not yet born-again (i.e. surrendered your life to Jesus Christ), saying "Amen" to their prayers is like pouring water into a basket – it will amount to nothing.  Why is it so? The Bible says the Lord does not listen to sinners (John 9:31). Whatever they utter in prayer is detestable to Him (Proverbs 28:9). Your own prayer, which is the uttered "Amen" (meaning, "Let it be so") went unheard. Your loved ones heard it, but the Lord paid no attention to it.

 

Who are the “sinners” referred to in (John 9:31)?  Sinners are those who do not do the will of God. Those who continue to reject the salvation of Jesus Christ are also not doing the will of God.  Master Jesus and the Bible in totality used the following terms for such individuals – "sinners"; "the wicked"; "the rebellious ones", and more.  They are still under the dominion of Satan, whether they choose to believe that or not (1 John 3:10, 1 John 3:8, John 8:42).

 

Personally, when I know someone is not in Christ and they say a word of prayer for me – "God bless you"; "You are blessed", and so on, I just smile out of courtesy.  I don’t respond, and I don’t say, "Amen".  Who did they offer the prayer to, really; and in whose name have they offered it since they are not in Christ?

 

Albeit, our Lord is rich in mercy, not willing that anyone should perish. Surrender all to Jesus today to be an adopted child of God. It is not too late. Become a beneficiary of the prayers of your loved ones, and in turn, be a blessing to others too, with your powerful and effective prayers. 

 

Shalom!
