Why Remain Captive?


Excellent Jehovah, wonderful Jehovah there is no greater than Jehovah Lord Divine. Who is greater than Jehovah Lord Divine, there is no greater than Jehovah Lord Divine. Excellent Jehovah, wonderful Jehovah there is no greater than Jehovah Lord Divine. He is alive forever; He is alive, My Jesus is alive forever He is alive Amen.

Yes! Our Jesus is alive forever more. Let the living praise the Lord, let the living praise the Lord. Father we thank You for the gift of life and health. Thank you for preserving us through the weekend and making us to see another wonderful day in this part of eternity. Glory be to God in the Highest. We are grateful Lord for all your provisions and blessings in our lives and situations. Glory be Him alone who is worthy of our praise.

Beloved, good morning from the Throne of grace. How are you doing? Hope your weekend was good? Thanks be to Jesus, Who always grant us victory over the works of darkness. He frustrates their enterprise so that their hand cannot perform their enterprise. Glory be to God, Who is always at our sides to give us victories over all He has made, over all the antics of the Satan and his cohorts

Beloved, it is God’s will that you prosper in health even as your soul prosperity. But that is not usually the case. Satan moves around like the roaring lion looking for who to devour, but all glory to Jesus Who has given us victory on the cross.

Have you notice that each time you receive the Word of deliverance or assurance from the Word that you are set free, made whole, be the head, and all such powerful scripture that the next you experience is an attack from the pit of hell. Why does that happen?

This usually occur to create doubt in your mind that you are not free. The shadow of what use to be will appear but without power. Why? Because the power of Jesus that declared you free is greater than then the Satan and his cohorts.

But it is important you know what the Word of God is saying in His Word. “Whoever the son of man set free is free indeed” so beloved you stand on this word and keep confessing it. As you are confessing it those conditions just have to either die, whither from its roots or consumed by fire or destroyed by fire as you have commanded it to be.

Satan comes for a counter attack and lunches out with all it arsenals but you must know that you are dealing with a defected foes and therefore he can do nothing except you permit him. So be careful how you manage situation when you are sensing an attack from the pit of hell.

As I usually say, they came in through the venue you least expect. It can be from your love ones or boss. Just to make you feel intimated or get frustrated and sin against God so that he will have a legal ground over you to deceive you that you are not yet free.

Beloved, greater glory will be far off from someone under captivity. Therefore, the repeated messages on the need to remain free from any form of captivity.

The plan of God is that you will be called sought out as you will further discover in the second ministration. So you must remain free to be a sought after.

Freedom guarantees your ability to do the will of God and that is why God wants to know that by reinforcing ministrations that will drive it home to your Spirit man. The slavery mentality must go to be able that take authority over the kingdom of darkness.

You cannot worship God properly if you are in captive. Yes, God demonstrated it when the Israelites were held captive by Pharaoh. God sent Moses to Pharaoh to release the Israelite so that they will go and worship Him.

Don’t forget that God predicted exactly how many years that they will be in slavery but their over stayed by thirty more years and even when they freedom was eventually announce and the embarked on the journey to the promised land a little inconveniencing made them to desire the slavery position other than staying in the will of God.

So today ministration is asking you same question, “Why remain captive”

Let get into it and discover more as the Spirit of God help us through:

          “The Lord thy God will turn thy captivity.” Deut. 30:3    


God’s own people may sell themselves into captivity by sin. A very bitter fruit is this, of an exceeding bitter root. What a bondage it is when the child of God is sold under sin, held in chains by Satan, deprived of his liberty, robbed of his power in prayer, and his delight in the Lord! Let us watch that we come not into such bondage; but if this has already happened to us, let us by no means despair.

But we cannot be held in slavery for ever. The Lord Jesus has paid too high a price for our redemption to leave us in the enemy’s hand. The way to freedom is, “Return unto the Lord thy God.” Where we first found salvation we shall find it again. At the foot of Christ’s cross confessing sin we shall find pardon and deliverance.

Moreover, the Lord will have us obey His voice according to all that He has commanded us, and we must do this with all our heart, and all our soul, and then our captivity shall end.

Often depression of spirit and great misery of soul are removed as soon as we quit our idols and bow ourselves in obedience before the living God. We need not be captives. We may return to Zion’s citizenship, and that speedily.

Lord, turn our captivity!

Yes may the Lord turn away our captivity in Jesus Name.  From NOW forward you are having a new Name. Beloved, in every area of your life the power of God will make you to be sought out after. Let’s get going:

“Thou shalt be called, Sought out.” Isaiah 62:12


The surpassing grace of God is seen very clearly in that we were not only sought, but sought out. Men seek for a thing which is lost upon the floor of the house, but in such a case there is only seeking, not seeking out.

The loss is more perplexing and the search more persevering when a thing is sought out. We were mingled with the mire: we were as when some precious piece of gold falls into the sewer, and men gather out and carefully inspect a mass of abominable filth, and continue to stir and rake, and search among the heap until the treasure is found.

Or, to use another figure, we were lost in a labyrinth; we wandered hither and thither, and when mercy came after us with the gospel, it did not find us at the first coming, it had to search for us and seek us out; for we as lost sheep were so desperately lost, and had wandered into such a strange country, that it did not seem possible that even the Good Shepherd should track our devious roamings.

Glory be to unconquerable grace, we were sought out! No gloom could hide us, no filthiness could conceal us, we were found and brought home. Glory be to infinite love, God the Holy Spirit restored us!

The lives of some of God’s people, if they could be written would fill us with holy astonishment. Strange and marvellous are the ways which God used in their case to find His own. Blessed be His name, He never relinquishes the search until the chosen are sought out effectually. They are not a people sought today and cast away tomorrow.

Almightiness and wisdom combined will make no failures, they shall be called, “Sought out!” That any should be sought out is matchless grace, but that we should be sought out is grace beyond degree! We can find no reason for it but God’s own sovereign love, and can only lift up our heart in wonder, and praise the Lord that this night we wear the name of “Sought out.”

Beloved, you will be sought-out and be found by God. Do not go into captive again by yourself. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you and preserve you in Jesus Name.

The price paid for your freedom is costly and you must not trivialize it. So stand on it and be delivered in Jesus Name.

This week is declared blessed in Jesus Name. Go in the Name of the Lord and conquer in Jesus Name. Return back with testimonies in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
