A Month of Divine Protection

 
Friend, praise the Lord! It is our hope that the good Lord, Our Redeemer, has kept you safe thus far. My wife and I have seen His faithfulness and our hearts are filled with praise for the great things HE continues to do.
 
The events currently occurring all over the world are worrisome. Bombings, hijackings, earthquakes, mudslides, coups, unemployment, bankruptcies and financial markets meltdown are increasing in frequency. Many people are losing their pension, property, etc. But, as for you child of God, I have news; expect Divine Protection. Divine protection is on the way for you and your household. This Month will be to you, a Month of Divine Protection. According to Psalms 91:7 “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.”
 
In Isaiah 43:1-3, the Bible says “But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O (place your name here), and he that formed thee, O (place your name here), Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: …”.{insertions mine}
 
Friend, I love the above verses from Isaiah. I believe they are very relevant to us in these times. May you never forget that God is your Creator, yes He created you. He told Jeremiah, “while you were still in your mothers womb, I knew you”. God is not caught by surprise by any of these events or any event in your life. If we allow Him to direct us at all times, HE who is the Author of our lives and who knows the end from the beginning, will make a way where there seems to be no way. Friend, HE not only created you, He also formed you. In forming you HE knew every path you would take and has equipped you with everything necessary to get you to where He wants to take you so that at the end like Paul you can also confess “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith” 2 Timothy 4:7.
 
The things that are happening in the world today has caused fear in the hearts of many people, even Christians. But God is saying “I have redeemed thee”. God is Our Redeemer. Friend, you have been bought. We read in 1 Corinthians 7:23 “Ye are bought with a price;…” You have a new Lord and HE takes care of HIS own. HE is your Father – HE will never leave you nor forsake you. David said in Psalms 37:25 “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” Friend, you will never be forsaken and your seed will not beg for bread. The Almighty One, The All Sufficient One is your Father. Praise the Lord!. HE has Redeemed thee. Friend, I rebuke every form of fear that is trying to come over you. In Jesus Name, I bind every fear of death, fear of losing your job, fear of sickness, fear of foreclosure, fear of not surviving, fear of recession and every fear that we have not even named. Amen. I declare that fear has no hold of you because he whom the Son sets free is free indeed. Friend, you are free from every fear that the enemy would want to place on you in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. You will not die but live to declare the works of the Lord. HE is your Redeemer.
 
God also says, through Isaiah, that HE is not just Our Redeemer but HE calls us by name and that we are HIS. He says, when we walk through the waters, HE will be with us and when we walk through the rivers, they will not overflow us. Literally, you will not be destroyed by any flood neither will any natural disaster overtake thee. Destructive waters are words that do not spring forth from the well of the Lord. Gossips, curses, heresies, etc shall not destroy you. God will keep you from every plan of evil; HE will catch the crafty in all their craftiness and will cause their schemes and plans to achieve no success. In fact, all evil plans will be turned around for your good in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Friend, destructive rivers and waters will not destroy you BUT you will walk on dry ground because God will be with thee in Jesus Precious Name, Amen.
 
Friend, there have been fires in the financial markets of the world. Whole financial systems have melted BUT God Almighty is saying “when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned”. Friend, you are fireproof! Glory to God. Your family will not be burned, Your investments will not be burned, Your ministry will not be burned, Your faith will not be burned; in fact God says “neither shall the flame kindle upon thee”. If you have lost anything, the devourer will have to repay it sevenfold in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
 
All these are promises that the Almighty, Our Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel, OUR DIVINE PROTECTOR promises you and I. Friend, again I declare that a thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand on your right hand but nothing shall harm thee. Remember, what David says, Psalms 23:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” This season as you travel to meet loved ones and celebrate the holidays, have no fear. God is your Divine Protector.
 
Friend, my wife and I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a very blessed and prosperous 2009. We love you and pray that goodness and mercy will follow you all the days of your life.
 
Merry Christmas,
 
Bro. Chester
