THE DESTINATION OF YOUR DESTINY (I)

Does everything eventually not boil down to a simple faith in God? Yes, it does. So, if Satan could not stop Adam from giving birth to the saints of the antediluvian, he cannot derail the destiny to your glorious destination. It is all up to you. The only key to your satanic conquest is the name of the LORD God. Adam taught this name to his offspring. He also taught them the way of the LORD God; and by the time his son, Seth begat Enos, the people of Adam began to call in the name of the LORD. AMEN! Seth means ‘put, set or appointed’. He lived up to his name; and if we would just wield our faith well enough and with patience, we are certainly put out, set and appointed for great things. Enos means ‘man, mankind, human being’, parallel to âdâm i.e. living soul. Are you a living entity and the terra firma is your abode, then, the Entity called the LORD God has put, set and appointed Himself as your destiny to ensure the glorification of the success of your destination.

The longest lived man in the recorded Bible history is Methuselah, an antediluvian saint of the LORD God. His name means ‘man of the dart (or javelin)’. Methuselah made the LORD his destiny, hence, was able to wield the javelin of faith unlike Cain, his much older antediluvian miscreant. Cain means ‘javelin’; a tool of defence. Cain turned against his household and defended the falsehood of Satan. For the fact that Methuselah made it to a good destination in that he saw Noah, his grandson, I will live to witness glorious days of my life: all I need is to wield the javelin of faith against the evil spirit of untimely death. His father, Enoch means ‘rest’. Jehovah, the LORD of Sabbath, is the rest of His sworn children. Those who fail not to use faith are like Methuselah whose stance produced Lamech. Lamech means ‘destruction or destroyer’. Your children, by the faith that justifies their walk with God, like Enoch did, will empower them to ward off evil from your household. They, like the song of the psalmist, “…shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate” (Psalm 127:3-5). The warding off of evil brings the much desired rest, which Enoch stood for all because Jesus is their destiny. Amen! For plying the destiny of the LORD God, Methuselah did not drown in the great deluge. He died just before the aqueous anger of God poured like never before!

destination1       The word ‘destiny’ is not found in the Bible; and when I say Bible, I mean the KJV. An implication of it is represented though in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life no man…….” The word ‘way’ is hodos: ‘path, road, by implication destiny’. Jesus is the only path to the perfection of good destination of success! This is the reason why I do not discuss destiny the way the academic human understanding sees it.

“Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:” [Gen 12:1]. Abram had an invitation to walk with the LORD the same way Enoch walked with Him. ‘Walk’, in Hebrew, is hâlak (haw-lak’) ‘to go, walk, come, depart, proceed, move, go away, to die, live, manner of life (figuratively)’. Your lifestyle must, as a matter of fact, mirror that of Jesus. To make Jesus your destiny, God should trust you just as He testified and said of Abraham in Genesis 18:19, “For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him”; and in Genesis 22:12, “…for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me”. Without faith it is impossible to have Jesus as your destiny. The word of God testifies in James 2:23, “And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God”. The word ‘imputed’ in the Greek is logizomai (log-id’-zom-ai): ‘to take an inventory, i.e. estimate {literally or figuratively}’. God saw the faith of Abraham and by HIS estimation Abraham was a righteous one, all because Abraham believed the word of God and obeyed it.

images_051    After a lingering gruesome experience of Job, he triumph over his trials. Your days of harrowing times will be over. Believe in the One who calls Himself your destiny. Job made a specific reference to Him in his asseveration of, “For I know that my redeemer liveth:” in Job 19:25. Are you on trials? Borrow a word of faith from Job, who said, “But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold” [Job 23:10]. Job did come forth as gold. He was the richest in the East before his vicissitudinous ordeal. After his affliction, And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before” (Job 42:10). ‘Turned’ is shuwb (shoob): 1. to turn back (hence, away) transitively or intransitively, literally or figuratively (not necessarily with the idea of return to the starting point) 2. (generally) to retreat 3. (often adverbially) again. The word ‘captivity’ is shbuwth (sheb-ooth’) (or shbiyth {sheb-eeth’}) 1. Exile 2. (concretely) prisoners 3. (figuratively) a former state of prosperity. This means that if Job got back his lost prosperity, becoming the richest man on earth in his days, you too will outtower these unpalatable, prevailing circumstances, and God will take all the glory.                           (…to be concluded…)
