1 Kings 3:22 KJV.
“And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king”.
☆☆☆ The Lord wants us to look at the above scripture critically today as the Holy Spirit ministers to us.
☆☆☆ If one had not read the judgment of King Solomon on this matter, it would have been difficult to decide who actually was telling the truth between the two women.
☆☆☆ The first woman gave a perfect account of how the incident happened.
☆☆☆ She confessed that she was fast asleep when her living child was replaced with a dead child of the other woman.
☆☆☆ She even told us how the son of the other woman died.
☆☆☆ Listen to her own account:
“And this woman’s child died in the night; because she overlaid it” – 1 Kings 3:19.
☆☆☆ The mystery here which would have been difficult to unravel is, ‘how did the first woman know that the second woman overlay her son’. After all both of them agreed they slept off!!!
☆☆☆ The response of the second woman, when Solomon decided to divide the living child into two, gave her away.
☆☆☆ Her reaction also revealed that the first woman was actually the mother of the living child.
“Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it” – 1 Kings 3:26.
☆☆☆ My point for today:
☆☆☆ The second woman knew the truth that she was actually telling lies to replace a dead child with the living.
☆☆☆ This is the level the world has gotten to today. Even the church of God is not left out of these ‘white lies’.
☆☆☆ Many people today can go to any length to defend what they know is a lie, just for financial rewards.
☆☆☆ Many are no longer serving God but their bellies.
☆☆☆ That was why Paul said:
“For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ”.
 “Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things” – Philippians 3:18-19.
☆☆☆ Whatever a man acquired through deception can never last.
“Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase” – Proverbs 13:11.
☆☆☆ Those who gather wealth, through dishonest means, run the risk of untimely death.
“As the partridge sitteth on eggs , and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool” – Jeremiah 17:11.
☆☆☆ Some are ready to get that position or title at whatever cost. What is the essence of receiving a title at the expense of your life!
☆☆☆ Some will be defending a course that they know is founded on falsehood. The question is, can they pay the price?
☆☆☆ The first woman, whose child was the living, was prepared to let go and let God.
☆☆☆ The second woman however, was prepared to lose the living child she had mischievously acquired.
☆☆☆ Whenever you hear anyone saying, “whatever happens, I don’t care, let the worst happens, I don’t care anymore”.
☆☆☆ Check carefully and you will discover that such people have nothing at stake.
☆☆☆ They have nothing to lose.
☆☆☆ It is dangerous and unwise to fight with somebody who has nothing to lose in a fight.
☆☆☆ Those who are having certain things at stake, in case of a loss, will have their bowels yawning for their treasures.
☆☆☆ Today, there are many people out there who are like the “second woman”.
☆☆☆ They are interested in exchanging living glories with dead ones.
☆☆☆ Some are out there looking for glories and stars they will destroy.
- Father, please secure my glory from destroyers of potentials and virtues in Jesus name.
- Oh God my creator, laminate and secure the source of my joy against evil intruders in Jesus name.
- The progress of my life will not be caged by hunters of stars in Jesus name.
- On the road path of success and breakthrough, I refuse to sleep the sleep of death in Jesus name.
- My father, my father, blindfold every evil eye targeting my glory for eventual take over.
☆☆☆ There are some in your place of assignment who are ready to lie against you and even defend such lies, just to destroy you and take over your place.
- Oh God of the “first woman”, please fight for me and expose every wicked plot against my success.
- My father and my God, remould every stone cast against the progress of my life into the bridge that will cross me over to my breakthrough in Jesus name.
☆☆☆ When God will help a man, he will not come down himself but send an angel inform of a man.
- Father, let my “angel of success” locate me today in Jesus name.
☆☆☆ God sent Solomon to fight for the first woman.
- Father, raise me a Solomon who will defend me against my oppressors in Jesus name.
- Oh God my father, don’t allow my oppressors to elude with the reward for my labour in Jesus name.
I pray for you today, the Lord will laminate your blessings against attacks from the other woman in Jesus name.
I pray for a particular woman, reading this prayer message, the God of heaven will deliver your marriage from attacks of the second woman in Jesus name.
I decree, anyone dangerously eyeing your blessings for eventual take over shall go blind.
I decree and declare, your living testimonies shall not be exchanged for a dead one by the wicked in Jesus name.
You are almost losing out on that argument for something which rightly belongs to you but I decree and declare, the God of heaven will fight for you.
Whatever the enemy has wrongly and maliciously taken away from you shall the King of kings restore back to you with interests in Jesus name.
Killers of glory and star will never gain access to yours in Jesus mighty name.
I prophesy, you will win this battle.
Nobody will deny you of what rightly belongs to you in Jesus name.
You are blessed in Jesus mighty name.
