TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – September 29, 2023
Luke 9:29 – As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.
Stephen was no comic book superhero. He was a real man being stoned to death for preaching the Good News of Jesus’ resurrection and the eternal life it promised believers. He is just like you. If God provided this miracle for Stephen as he faced death at the hands of evil men, what more will He do for you as you take the Gospel to your friends and neighbors? You were made to go behind enemy lines and snatch POWs from Satan’s camp, so move out!
Declaration: I am in God’s hands. He will get me to my destination no matter what man does to me. I will not fear.
GOODNESS CHANGES THE ATMOSPHERE
When you get good at setting the atmosphere, you begin to recognize sweet or sour atmospheres really quick.
It’s amazing to me where goodness will show up and, it might surprise you, but goodness likes to turn up in a mess. It actually thrives in chaos! Why? Because goodness will always oppose evil and evil is overcome by goodness because goodness wants to advance.
Goodness doesn’t tolerate evil and evil slinks back into the hole it crawled out of when goodness shows up. Just like light is superior to darkness, goodness is far superior to evil. When goodness shows up and tears darkness apart, it tends to be messy.
And God saw light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. – Genesis 1:4
God loves to be in the addition and multiplication business. But when it comes to confronting darkness with light, He drops His supernatural math into the division business. God moves darkness out of the way and displaces it with the goodness of light. BOOM!
Consequently, there is a lot of confrontation with goodness showing up. There tends to be a lot of yelling and slanderous accusations thrown at goodness because division tends to be messy.
