Invoking The Names of 21 Bible Men who did great things for God in their time leaving lessons for our Sons.

Sons Novena Day 19.

Man of the Day: John the Baptist

Prayer Focus: Love for Justice and Fairness

Jesus said about John that among men born of women (that would include everyone by the way!) there was none greater than John (Matt 11:11). This was “the one about whom it is written: “‘I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before you.’” (Matt 11:10).

John was not afraid of being politically incorrect and apparently he was not sent to make friends and influence people but speak the truth and prepare the way for Jesus Christ. On one occasion, “John said to the crowds coming out to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’

For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire” (Luke 3:7-9). Can you imagine calling out to the crowds where were coming to him to be baptized (Luke 3:7) “You brood of vipers?” That took great courage. John even told King Herod that “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife” (Mark 6:18b) and ended up losing his head for it, therefore John the Baptist is among those who I considered one of the greatest men of the Bible.


AS WE COME TO THE END.

Stewardship and Giving

Giving is a facet of a larger subject called stewardship. According to James 1:17, God owns everything because He is the Creator, Maker and Giver of all things — so when we give, we are merely giving back a portion of what belongs to God anyway. Our stewardship towards God includes everything that we have been given and how we use this on behalf of the Lord and for the Lord’s work. We are stewards of the abilities, spiritual gifts, knowledge, money, in fact, everything that we have been given — but today we focus only on the Biblical principles of giving. This giving is only one facet of our stewardship.

Five Basic Principles

There are five basic principles of Biblical giving.

  1. Giving is a measure of one’s love for God: Matthew 6:19-21 teaches that the believer should lay up treasures in heaven, for where one’s treasure is, there your heart is also. If we lay up treasures in heaven, our heart will be on heavenly things. Further, 1 Timothy 6:17-18 teaches that the rich should have their hope set on God and be ready to give out of their wealth. Believers must remember our hope is not on wealth, but on the Lord God (cf. Titus 2:11-14). According to 1 John 3:17, if one does not give, then the question is, “Does the love of God abide in that person?”
  2. Giving as an expression of one’s faith: James 2:15-17 teaches that the believer’s faith becomes useful when it is expressed through works. The work of giving therefore shows one’s faith. The believer is not saved by works, but shows his or her faith through their works.
  3. Giving more results in receiving more: This is not a license for the name-it-and-grab-it movement, but simply to say that the believer can never out-give God. This is a promise from God: Give and it shall be given unto you (Luke 6:38). Further, Philippians 4:15-19 teaches that God will supply the believer’s needs (not ‘wants’).
  4. Giving should be done in secret: Matthew 6:1-4 states that giving should be done in secret, not for show. Keep your giving between you and God.
  5. Giving produces a willingness to work: The believer should be willing to work in order to be able to give more (cf. Acts 20:33-35).

DAILY PRAYER OF BLESSING.

My son……………………….. I give to you the blessing of my prayers.

I give to you the blessing of my praise.

I give to you the blessing of my passage.

I give to you the blessing of my purity.

I give to you the blessing of my name.

My son, Because YOU are born of God, YOU shall overcome the world and every battle in it, in Jesus name.

By the blood of Jesus, I blot out every evil family record that may be speaking against you.

Like Joseph, may you receive the anointing to terminate generational battles.

Like Jephtha, may you receive the grace to rewrite our family history positively.

Like David, may you be used to kill the Goliath that we your parents and our seniors could not kill.

Father, empower my son to defeat the forces that defeated our parents and grandparents.

AMEN
