Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this:
That power belongs to God.
That Eventful Evening
God destroys Satan’s plan, because, to him, we are of exceedingly high value. I just happened to have missed the mid-day appointment; a NYPD squad car just happened on the eventful evening to be parked almost at the entrance of the church, we just happened to have made another appointment to meet that eventful evening. What is this all about? Well please allow me to tell you! It was the evening God destroyed Satan’s plan of destruction launched against a broken and emotionally- tired young man.
Satan Tried to Destroy a Life
God Stopped Satan Dead in His Tracks
The mother ran out of the building; she called out to the police officers who were stationed just a few feet away. The Police Officers and I prompted the mother to call home to her husband. We needed to determine how much medication remained in the bottle, which she said was filled earlier that day. Her husband said “1” pill was left in the bottle. The officers quickly assessed the situation, called ambulance service which showed up in 3 minutes. This was a miracle;f or where we were located ambulances often show up in half an hour not in 3 minutes. For a period of 10 to 15 minutes, Emergency Technicians worked on the unconscious young man before they were able to transport him to the hospital. This young man was/is of such great value to God that our Lord, himself, orchestrated everything to have all in place to save one life! God destroyed the Satan’s weapon to cause this man to commit suicide. God destroyed and stopped Satan’s plan of destruction dead in its tracks!
God Orchestrated Movements to Save a Life
Two days later, when the young man came out of unconsciousness, he told his physicians that he had taken 20 pills of his psychotic medication. Let me tell you Saints of the goodness of God, if that mother had kept the appointment; her son would have slept his life away right under her very eyes. If the police were not assigned on that night to stand in-front of our church EMT would not have arrived in 3 minutes, and a life would have been lost. If the Lord had not alerted me to the fact that the young man may have taken an overdose, we would have been blinded into thinking that he was just very tired, may have delayed seeing the need to cal 911 and a life would have been lost. This young man was/is of such great value to God that our Lord himself orchestrated everything to have all in place to save a life! God destroyed the Satan’s weapon to cause this man to commit suicide. God destroyed and stopped Satan’s plan of destruction dead in its tracks!
Celebrating Life, not Mourning at a Funeral
Our God worked all things together for God for this young man and his mother. Right now we are celebrating a life saved and not planning the funeral of a life lost – through suicide. You see Satan wanted this young man to destroy his life; but many people have been praying for him and praying for his mother. Eyebrow Burners please know that that is the power of prayer. God moved even the NYPD to station their men to be in the right place, on the right day, at the right time to help save the life of one of his broken lambs. Some of you may be discouraged today, tired of fighting the same battle. You may be ill, feel broken or emotionally weak. You may see yourself as feeble, frail and poor. But you know this, do not allow Satan to lie to you or convince you that you are of no value to anyone. Look what God did for this young man! What amazed us most was the fact that he does not even remember one iota of what took place. But this we do know, God stood in the gap for him. Our Lord, ahead of time, had everything arranged to sabotage Satan’s plot against this young man. This young man was/is of such great value to God that our Lord himself orchestrated everything to have all in place to save his life! God destroyed the Satan’s weapon to cause this man to commit suicide. God destroyed and stopped Satan’s plan of destruction dead in its tracks!
The Young man Lives: Satan Was Defeated
God Destroyed Satan’s Plan
read a quote recently which said “Satan said ‘I am going to destroy that Christian’ and Jesus replied “over my dead body’. ” Eyebrow Burners remember there is power in the name of Jesus, to break every chain to annihilate every stronghold and pulverize every plan of Satan. Greater is He that is within us than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4); I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 3:13). Eyebrow Burners, our God is not weak. Our God is almighty; our God is all powerful; our God is omnipotent! Saints, the power of God is available to every person who has taken Christ as his Savior and Lord. God destroyed Satan’s weapon to cause this man to commit suicide. We are celebrating a life saved not mourning at a funeral for a life taken! God destroyed and stopped Satan’s plan of destruction dead in its tracks!! Celebrate with us!
There is power in the name of Jesus there is power in the name of Jesus, there is power in then name of Jesus to break every chain; break every chain; break every chain. LISTEN TO THIS POWERFUL WORSHIP SONG
Our God is Fierce- Our is POWERFUL
His Servant and yours
