3 DAYS FASTING AND PRAYER FOR AUGUST 20th, 21st & 22nd 2021
THEME: "THE ANOINTING THAT BREAKS THE YOKE"
SCRIPTURE: 1 John 2:20-27 “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you[a] know all things. 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 24 Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life. 26 These things I have written to you concerning those who try to [b]deceive you. 27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you [c]will abide in Him.”
Precious saints there are two forces at work in the world today. Truth by the working of the Holy Spirit, and evil, by the working of Satan, the devil, who is the father of all lies. When you tune into the mainstream media today, you can hear the blatant lies being spread to create fear in the hearts of men. Smiths Wigglesworth was reported to rebuking anyone that came into his house with a newspaper. He did this because he only wanted to hear what the Spirit of God was saying through the reading of the Word or utterance. If he had visitors, it was not uncommon for him to read the scripture until the spiritual atmosphere changed with that person that came into the house. This is the same man that walked in authority that raised the dead, cast out demons and creative miracles.
See we carry a lot of burden today with everything that is happening at present and the enemy uses these uncertain times to fill the atmosphere with tension. It is so thick today in the community that you can feel it and people are tense. Sadly, many Christians have one foot in the world and one foot in the life of faith. The Bible calls this lukewarm belief (Revelation 3:15-16).
We are living in days that involve a crisis of faith. The spirit of the antichrist is working in this world and setting the stage and culture for his unveiling. It is vitally important to stand strong today in the faith and to be able to recognize the lies and deceit of the evil one when they come our way. Having daily devotions and a consistent life of prayer is a beautiful way to maintain the anointing within your life. This will bring the anointing to break every yoke.
