As we are approaching year 2020, we need to start laying off the things that hindered us from progressing in 2019 so that this coming year will become a better story. I pray that as you read further your eyes will be wide opened to the things you need to drop to ride majestically to your place of destiny in 2020
The company that you keep determines what accompanies you. There is no association that leaves you neutral. Your friends can either make or break you.
A negative friend can have a very negative influence on you. This explained why many well trained children turned into something unusual when they entered higher institutions. Many of them became smokers, cultists and harlots in school because they were influenced and initiated by there negative friends. The bible says, “evil communication corrupt good manner (1.Cor.15:13).”
A company of fools will not only produces a fool but will also drastically destroyed the victim (Wrong association equals quick destruction).
“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed (Prov.13:20).”
Sometimes it may be very difficult to break the vicious cycle of traditional orientations. This stereotypical way of life can be cancerous except it’s done away with Christ. The last word Jesus said on the cross was “it is finished.” (John.19:30). An end has come to false beliefs and superstitions. You’re no longer under the bondage of idol worshipping and blood sacrifices. The blood of Jesus is the only blood that is needed for sacrifice and it has been used.
In our culture, the birth of a twins used to be perceived as a taboo & even the children was identified as idol. So, these people would rather kill them than to see them living.
While some are currently involving in the worship inanimate objects because that was what their ancestors used to worship. While some people still believe is charms, incantations and enchantments most especially for evil purposes.
The bible says, “I’m(Jesus) is THE way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me (Jn.14:6).”
The is a definite article, there is only one way and that is Jesus.
The sad thing is that many are still under the plague of fear because a professional prophet who told them that they are destined for misfortunes and curses are hanging over their destinies. Beyond any reasonable doubt, curses are real(all curses including generational curse are real).
“Thou shall not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me (Deu.5:9).”
But, the truth is that all curses including generational curse are reversible. In the family of Christ, it’s your birthright to be blessed (blessings are reversal of curses). You’re a seed of Abraham and Jacob who is ‘uncursable.’
“There is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, what hath God wrought (Num.23:23).”
However, you can’t claim to be a member of a family expect you’re one. The day that you received Jesus as your personal Lord and saviour, your family lineage changes from your biological family to the family of Christ.
Wait a minute, Jesus had taken your place in spell, magic, curse, sickness and disease on the cross and He said, it is finished.
“Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross (Col.2:14).”
The two factors contributing to your backwardness in 2020 are:
- Association and;
- Traditional Orientations
The entire world lies in a magnetic field of wickedness. In this negative pole of evil, we live among wolves in sheep clothing. Be careful of whom you move with. Friendship is not by force but choice. Jesus is my best friend. Humans behaviours are erratic (unpredictable). Ingrained in your spirit, traditional views and orientations which must be casted down by embracing the true picture of whom you are in Christ (by looking through the window of the scripture). Then, you can live a fulfilled and advanced life according to the original plans of God in 2020 (Jer.29:11).
