THE DARKNESS BEFORE ELEVATION
Have you been asking God to elevate or promote you?, Have you been aspiring in your heart to become like certain great and powerful men of God?, Have you been wanting God to lift you up in your personal spiritual walk with Him?, if your answers to this questions is YES, then I have a question for you—Are you ready for face and overcome the darkness before your elevation?!
I discovered that the kingdom of darkness will always show up on your path to elevation to stop you, this is because they know that if they allow you get elevated, you would be a threat to their kingdoms or would frustrate their evil plans on mankind, therefore, it is a constant factor that you must face and fight some level of darkness and win before you will move forward to the great height God has prepared for you.
As powerful and mighty our Lord Jesus is, He was faced with a terrible darkness before His elevation, Bible said he was obedient to the death of the cross, in fact, Jesus prayed to God three times asking Him to roll away the darkness before him but God refused to answer that prayer, Why?—because the darkness was part of his journey and he must face, experience and defeat it. Maybe the reason why God is refusing to answer some of your prayers is because you are currently passing through the darkness that will elevate you. As powerful as prophet Elijah was, he had his own darkness, As righteous as Job was, he was made to pass through a very fearful darkness, yes, even David passed through some years of darkness and pains before he became a King over all Israel and Judah…So, the question you should be asking yourself now is: Am I prepared to face and defeat the darkness attached to my elevation?!
What is this darkness you must face? And why must you face it?—Like I had said earlier, the kingdom of darkness will not watch you and see you get elevated without attacking you to stop you, the Bible told us that Satan is the god of this world and his kingdom determines what happen in the earth, the dark kingdom believes that they control the affairs of the whole world and they monitor very closely every creature on earth, therefore, the darkness I’m talking about here is the BATTLE the dark kingdom will wage against you before your elevation and this darkness can manifest in so many ways depending on the kind of elevation that is coming. You want to grow and mature in spiritual things?, question is, have you defeated the darkness assigned to stop you?!
WHY MUST YOU FACE THIS DARKNESS?, 1) IT IS MEANT TO PROVE YOU SO THAT GOD CAN KNOW WHO YOU REALLY ARE AND WHAT YOU STAND FOR, 2) IT IS MEANT TO STRENGTHEN YOU AND TEACH YOU WISDOM, 3) BECAUSE YOU WILL FIND THE PATH TO YOUR ELEVATION RIGHT WITHIN THE DARKNESS AND 4) IF YOU CAN DEFEAT THE DARKNESS,THEN YOU ARE QUALIFIED FOR THE THRONE AWAITING YOU!!
Though a lot of people today are so happy for my life, calling and ministry but they never knew how much great pains, sufferings and troubles I had faced in darkness…Have you defeated your darkness?!!! Amen.
