TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – 4/18/2023
1 John 4:18 – There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
Fear empowers and exalts the inferior but love empowers and exalts the superior. Fear is all about protecting yourself and surviving. Love is all about being selfless and sacrificing for others. You don’t have to be afraid because the presence of God is with you.
Declaration: I’m 100 percent loved and worthy to receive all of God’s blessings. I do not have a spirit of fear, but of power love and a sound mind.
The book of 1 Timothy was written at the end of Paul’s life. And the fact that Paul was actually in a much better mood by the time he was old is a really big deal because most people aren’t.
By the time that Paul wrote 1 and 2 Timothy, he’d been in prison for some time and he was near his death. He’s not laying down. No, sir! He’s firing off letters and preaching like a man on the mission he was. Even as Saul who persecuted Christians, he was a man of passion and purpose. He was a man of action.
Knowing Paul’s zeal, God had given this unlikely evangelist a very special promise: “I’m gonna send you all the way to Rome and you are literally going to reach the house of Caesar for my kingdom.”
My friend, that brother went straight to the top. He was just like Sam Houston goin’ after Santa Anna’s tent at San Jacinto. It’s like Paul was saying, “I know exactly where I need to go and I’m goin’ right there.”
The Bible says he made it to the destination God had promised. He did not fall out or lose focus.
All the saints greet you, but especially those who are of Caesar’s household. – Philippians 4:22
Did you catch that? Paul is saying, “I made it into Caesar’s house and I even got some of ’em saved and playing for Team Jesus.”
Do you aim high when it comes to telling people about King Jesus? Do you look at influencers and say, “I’m going to get that cat into the Kingdom because he will be a game-changer”? You should. You really should. But you should also get that single mama with a pile of bills, your beer slugging mechanic with the foul mouth and the chain smoking tattoo artist covered in skulls and piercings. Why?
They are influential in circles you know nothing about. When you aim for them, you are aiming at the top. So, aim high and get some people saved. Did Paul get Caesar? Not that we know of. He did get those within his house. Servants? Family? We don’t know. Whoever they were, their testimony was light in a dark place. God can use that, so what are you waiting for?
