Scriptures is a documentation that presents to us the examples of men who have gone ahead of us, with the advantage of learning from their lives to have better experience in life Rms. 15:4; 1Cor. 10:11-12. Remember, there is nothing new on the earth; everything happening now has happened before Eccl. 1:9. When we learn to look at their example to determine how we do things today will position us for better and greater result in life.
The altar of One-thing.
Scriptures show us that everyone that approached the prayer altar with just one thing as the focus, returned with the testimony. Based on this, our Pre-Shiloh encounter service ha been prophetically declared as the ALTAR OF ONE THING AT A TIME.
He understood the secret and power of one thing at a time; this is one of the secrets for his great result on the prayer altar. He prayed specifically for direction and received it, and at another time it was forgiveness he asked for specifically 2Sam. 5:18-20; Psa. 51:1-19.
The Jews in Esther’s days were faced with threat of total destruction that will lead to the extinction of their race, and behind it was a man known a Haman. Esther and the entire Jews in Babylon prayed only for favor that will lead to the rescue of the Jews from being destroyed, and God answered.
The whole nation of Israel had turned from following God to follow Baal, with the king and his queen taking the lead in this rebellion to God. Rather than fight them, pray against them, Elijah called on God for one thing; for the heart of the people to be turned back to God, and God answered him.
The Power of the Altar of One thing.
One demand for the believer to prevail on the prayer altar is to be specific in his demand. The prayer of one-thing fulfils this condition, making it to command spontaneous response from God.
Scriptures make us to understand that what the believer does not have is what he has not asked for on the prayer altar of one thing Jn. 16:23-24; Jms. 4:2. The bible instructed that believer to pray when he is faced with affliction, and the affliction will be terminated Jms. 5:13.
In conclusion, scriptures make us to understand that we serve the God of old, who has not change Mal. 3:6; Heb. 13:8. What He did in the time of old is what He will do again, only if we will engage ourselves in what the men of old did to invoke Him to do what He did in their days.
To anyone reading this that will love to give his/her life to Christ, pray this prayer out loud with me from your heart: “Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins; wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.”
Father in the name of Jesus, I place a demand for my desire and by faith I take practical delivery of my testimony now Jn. 16:23-24.
