Delay is not wasted time! (Pastor Prince)
Lots of testimonies are coming in, all over the world are being impacted. Praise Jesus!!
We still believe that Jesus heals today! Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever!
Jesus has not lost His power.
The devil’s technique is to point you to someone who is not healed. This is to discredit healing.
For what we don’t understand, we don’t understand. To be absence from the body is to be presence with the Lord. When they are with the Lord they are more alive than now. All the loved ones who have gone, they are in happiest place forever!
With the Lord, they will never again experience boredom.
God still heal today!!! If you are healed, you win. If you are not healed, you still win! They are in better place!
We can’t argue with human experience. Surely He has taken our disease!
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“He Himself took our infirmities
And bore our sicknesses.”
Jesus heals diseases.
We have so many testimonies of people been healed!!!
We believe Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and Jesus still heals!!
It seems like promises of the Lord are been delayed in our lives. Delay is not wasted time! God has purpose for delay!!
There is a law of restoration in the bible. When something is restored, it is always greater in quantity or quality!! (God did not steal from us, but He restore for us!)
2 Samuel 12:21-22
Then his servants said to him, “What is this that you have done? You fasted and wept for the child while he was alive, but when the child died, you arose and ate food.”
And he said, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, ‘Who can tell whether the Lord will be gracious to me, that the child may live? ’
2 Samuel 12:23-24
But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”
Solomon Is Born
Then David comforted Bathsheba his wife, and went in to her and lay with her. So she bore a son, and he called his name Solomon. Now the Lord loved him,
He is a child of restoration. Instead of being bitter, he got better. God chose the one Bathsheba and the next child was Solomon.
What is happening for delay?
Delay does not mean rejection. Delay does not mean God is displeased with you.
We live after Christ died on the cross. Jesus was punished at the cross for us!!
We can stand in the presence of God’s holiness with no sense of something undone.
All our sins have been forgiven at the cross!
We are not afraid of God’s holiness. God’s holiness is fully vindicated at the cross!!
If there is delay in manifestation, we are probably special!!!
All the delays, the women in the bible, they cried. They were barren. They cried, yet they pray, they believe.
Born of faith, the child is favored by God!
Delay does not mean rejection!
God will never hold our sins against us anymore!! After Jesus’ death and resurrection, we are no more in our sins!! Christ died for our justification! Sin is no longer the issue for our delay!!
So what is the issue for our delay?
There are many Mary in the bible.
Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.”
When Jesus heard that, He said, “ This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”
Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
So, when He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was.
He stayed two more days.
See the word “so”! He delayed because He loved them!!
Both Mary loved the Lord. Mary Magdalene believed in the dead Jesus. She had love in her heart but her intellect was not enlightened.
Mary Magdala knew Jesus raised from the dead and therefore did not go to the tomb.
The One who created something out of nothing, He is the only One who has the choice which location to be born. Yet He chose a humble place. He chose to be born among the poor. He was born into the poor family.
Bullock is for the rich. Mary brought a pair of dove. That shows they were poor. Jesus stood into poor family.
Jesus won’t leave us poor. He prosper us!!
The way Jesus speak is not lowly, is priestly. The way He walked and carry Himself. They saw a Prince among the poor. A royalty among the common people. A priestliness about Jesus!! The humility reaching out to the poor.
He knew where He came from. Yet He came down to wash His disciples’ feet.
They said he whom You loved is sick.
I am the resurrection and the life! When Jesus died, it was the death itself! He killed death by death!!!
Jesus marched after death and He conquered it!!!
Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life!!!
Delay does not mean God is rejecting us. He is going to give us revelation that no one has!!
Imagine the story of Abraham.
that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
God’s Infallible Purpose in Christ
For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
Those who get healed gradually, they learnt something about the Lord daily!
Most of the time we wanna God to bless us with instantaneous healing. It is good. However, when we get healed gradually, be example of these people who has “long patience”
God swore to Abraham. Abraham patiently endured before he received the promise.
Abraham was called by God. When God called him out, He called him out of idolization. God promised to make him a great nation.
Sarah at that time was 65 years old. Abraham told her, get ready the baby clothes! When Abraham said that, months went, and yet nothing seems to happen. Abraham worship the true God!
The God of glory appeared to Abraham. There was radiant when God appeared!! Yet months after months years after years nothing seems to happen. He asked why..
Abraham went down to a lot of places. When God told him to bring only his wife, yet he brought his father and Lot along. His father name is Terah and it means delay!
Abraham looked around those idol worshipers and they have babies so easily yet he who worshipped the true God, he could not see the promise yet.
He waited for 24 years!! The baby, Issac, was special! Issac came!
God renewed both their youth!!
The king went by his eye sight. He wanted Sarah! Sarah’s youth was renewed and she was attractive!!
Now they have something that they received while they were waiting in the delay!
God multiplied Abraham’s descendants like the stars in the sky and the sand!!
Issac was a champion! He was the promise seed! He was blessed!!
What about David?
David knocked down Goliath at the age of 15!
David had handsome eyes. God spoke personally to Samuel to anoint David. David was handpicked by God! When others saw a boy, God saw a king in David!
He was anointed by Samuel to be a king!
15 years later, David became a king! During the 15 years, there was delay. He was hunted down by the king then. He wrote psalms!! He had experience with the Lord!!! He asked why and praise the Lord again!
God took 15 years to train David!
Same piece but refined for the master’s use. We are special. When the healing come, it will be special. Revelation of the Lord!
The story of Job of a upright man. Job was before Jesus died. The story of Job through the lens of grace!
Many believers know there is nothing wrong with God. They will blame themselves saying they don’t know enough.
Delay is not because of our sins or ignorance. At the right time, when he is king, you will see how the Lord trained David.
Sarah looked so young when she finally had her baby. Issac became a quality son.
It is amazing how the Lord restored to us! He is a just God!
Kimberly from United States. She had never heard of grace message when she grew up. She heard for the first time from Pastor Prince. She run ministry. She shared directly from pastor book to the women prisoners. They were experiencing freedom and transformation occurred!!
Pastor Prince is not a initiator of this ministry. It is given by God!!
Pastor lost all confident in his talking. He could not speak properly. The delay caused pastor to lose his confidence. Now the confident he has is from the Lord. Is Christ-confident!
Condemnation is the root of our problem.
Delay does not mean God is rejecting you or denial! We are special and we receive something that others are not receiving!!
God has a purpose and God sees the future!!
The devil will tell us we are not gg to pray for the sick because we are still sick.
At 90 years old a king wanted Sarah.
Genesis 20:17 – 21:1
So Abraham prayed to God; and God healed Abimelech, his wife, and his female servants. Then they bore children; for the Lord had closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech because of Sarah, Abraham’s wife.
Isaac Is Born
And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken.
He prayed for the very area his own wife was going through!! To all be healed of closed wombs! He prayed when his own wife had closed womb!!
Right after this incident, Sarah became pregnant!!
If you are sick, pray for the sick!!
Start getting out of yourself!
Start praying for people in the area we believe for!!!
Our miracle lies within our ministry!!
God opened up the red sea and told them the land was good!! Man came to Moses and said to him they wanna send spices to check on the land. Moses because of their weaknesses allow them to send the spices. Among the 12 are 2 guys, carry a pole with grapes!! The grapes was so huge they had to carry with pole! The grape is picture of blood. Picture of two men crucified beside Jesus.
When God said it, it is so! Believe Him!!
The two spices who carried the grapes, they said the land that God gave us, we are well able to take the land!! But the 10 spices (a pix of the law) they tok abt themselves and the enemy and God was not in their speech!
Joseph was one example of delay. His brother sold him but God sent him!!
We have God in our lives! God is doing something in our lives that we have revelation of Him!!
The giants are breads for us!! – eat them! Problem comes to make us stronger!! Problems can’t eat us!!!
Those who don’t believe, they said with their word that they will die in the wilderness.
But the two, Joshua and Caleb, had different spirit. God wanted to bring them into the promised land yet the two wondered with those who don’t believe.
When all of them died, Joshua and Caleb went into the promised land. God allowed delay to happen and He restored them. He brought them in, fought with the enemies. They did not grow old!!
I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the Lord sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land, and I brought back word to him as it was in my heart. Nevertheless my brethren who went up with me made the heart of the people melt, but I wholly followed the Lord my God. So Moses swore on that day, saying, ‘Surely the land where your foot has trodden shall be your inheritance and your children’s forever, because you have wholly followed the Lord my God. ’ And now, behold, the Lord has kept me alive, as He said, these forty- five years, ever since the Lord spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty- five years old. As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in. Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the Lord spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the Lord will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the Lord said.”
And Joshua blessed him, and gave Hebron to Caleb the son of Jephunneh as an inheritance.
The Lord has kept him alive and well! They stopped growing old while others grew old and died.
The Lord is the One who kept them alive and well!!!
They are as strong now (same as when he was 40 years old!)
They were in middle east. The sun was so hot and dry that no amount of moisturizer able to keep them. However, the Lord kept them alive and well!!!
They are men and women of God! No exaggeration!!
They learnt a lot! When God said speak, don’t hit the rock. The revelation they got from the Lord is priceless!
The delay helps us to feel for people!
It will come! Congratulations for our manifestation! It is on its way!!!! 😉
