PROVOKING DIVINE IMMUNITY

PROVOKING DIVINE IMMUNITY

TEXTS: Zac 2:5, Mark 16:17-18, Exo 23:25, 15:26, 12:13, 9:6, 2Chr 16:9, Psalm 125:2.

 

INTRODUCTION

Immunity simply means resistance from attacks. It is security from evil. When someone is immunized to something harmful, it means that the person can’t be affected by it. Now divine immunity speaks of being under divine covering. It is security from evil by divine force.

Divine immunity speaks of heaven’s seal of preservation over the life of a believer against the onslaught of the devil. It is to be exempted from evil and destruction.

Today by the power in the name of Jesus I pray for you, when evil come knocking, you and all that concerns you shall be exempted.

 

Seal of Exemption

  • When one is under divine immunity, it means that the mystery of the seal exemption from destruction is at work in his life.

 Gen 31:29: “It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the God of your father spake unto me yesternight, saying, Take thou heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.”

This was Laban speaking to Jacob. But unfortunately for him, he was talking to a man under divine immunity. The covenant of Jehovah upon Jacob’s life could not allow Laban to speak to him badly let alone touching him.

He said to him, it is in my power to do you hurt…

You know there are personalities like that claiming they have all it takes to do you harm. May be for one reason or the other, their connection, wealth, position and status, etc, is making them to believe they can do you evil. Just the same way Laban thought it was within his powers to hurt Jacob.

I pray for you, let such “Laban” in your life that has such thought concerning you be visited by the wrath of God.

How you know them is that they talk with this pride in their voice. They will tell you, “I have all it takes to retrench you, I have all it takes to make your life miserable, it is in my power to determine the outcome of your life, it is in my power to place you where you belong etc.” But today, I pray for you, let that which they think they are leaning on as a backup fail them.

They will suddenly discover just like their elder brother “Laban” that they have no such power. You don’t threaten a man that has the seal of exemption working in his life. If you try that you will die his death. Just tell that devil you can’t threaten me and watch your faith come up. How dare Laban speak with such conviction to a seed of covenant? Child of God don’t you know you are a seed of covenant? If it is that easy for the devil to kill you, then, considering what you’ve been through over time, by now you would have long ago died.  Well, your enemies can talk because talk is cheap but God won’t allow their unrighteous decrees to be implemented in your life.

I pray for you, let every pronouncement of destruction hanging over your head, role back to whomsoever that uttered it in the name of Jesus.

They may say, “we shall frustrate your marriage, we shall mute you in this office. But today, I pray for you under God, let those enemies be rendered powerless. They shall sleep powerful and wake powerless in the name of Jesus.

Now Laban having spoken proudly to Jacob, the Lord showed up.. Just the same way God will show up on your case.

 

See that verse again

Gen 31:29 ‘‘It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the God of your father spake unto me yesternight, saying, Take thou heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.’’

Laban was trying to hurt Jacob, but God showed up with a a warning telling him, don’t even talk to him with a raised voice. God had to start the battle from his dream. Hear me when you are under divine immunity, your enemies will be even cautioned on how they talk to you. By implication, God said to Laban, you are actually pointing finger to the wrong person and be careful lest you hurt your own self. The demon of infirmity may have thought that he has the power to hurt or kill you but today, on your behalf, he will hear the voice of the Lord and that is the voice of divine immunity.

Another Scripture  Isaiah 65:8  Thus saith the Lord, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sake, that I may not destroy them all.

And one saith, destroy it not. Not everybody is destructible. There are these specie of men bearing on their bodies the seal of divine exemption. You can’t destroy them.

_When the demon of sickness is coming close to you and yours, he will from behind, hear the voice of Elohim saying, destroy him/her not.

_When that accident demon is sent to you, he will hear, destroy her not.

_When that fire disaster demon is sent to your shop, he will hear, destroy it not.

_When that tumor/lump demon is sent to your breast, he will hear destroy her not.

_When those assassins/kidnappers are sent to you, they will hear, destroy him not. 

_When that evil arrow is shut out from that wicked altar against you, it will hear DESTROY HIM NOT. 

_With a voice of thunder declare, I am Indestructible. Just go ahead and speak in the Holy Ghost now.

Isaiah 65:8: ’Thus saith the Lord, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all.’’

The reason why God won’t allow the devil to destroy you is because you are a carrier of blessing. The blessing a man is carrying inside of him preserves him from evil. I will still come back to the full implication of that. We are not the generation that fear the fears of the world, rather the fears of the world fear us. Say amen to that!

 

BENEFITS OF DIVINE IMMUNITY

1) Divine Immunity is a mark of distinction.

  • Divine immunity distinguishes you from others.

Exo. 8:22-23: And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth. 23: And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.

The Lord said, He will sever the land you dwell in the days of evil and destruction. You can only panic if the word of God has started failing, but if His word can not fail, then need of panicking. God said he will put a division, that is a distinction. Look at what it means, you can be in the same room with someone, death will come and see the other person but will not see you. Infirmities cannot interfere with the integrity of the word of God upon your life.

The bible says,

       “…I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there;’’

Can you just imagine, how can the reality of this word dawn on me and I will still be in panic? Not so. He will sever the land you dwell. That land is where your businesses are situated. It is where your children are schooling, it is where you live, it is where your spouse works, it is where your office is, where your parents stay, it is where things/those that are in one way or the other connected to you are.

And the bible says, he will make sure no swarms, bad news, evil, disease, destruction, etc. enters there. Declare with me, I am distinguished by the blood. You and your family and all that concerns and connected to you are distinguished by the blood of Jesus.

It is what you believe that you attract. So start believing right. When they come with their “infirmity” story, tell them I am distinguished by the blood of Jesus. Shout fire.! Use the blood story to counter that infirmity story. Divine preferential treatments are for those under divine immunity. May Jehovah handle you preferentially. When others are shouting there is a casting down, you are saying there is a lifting up.

May this word boost your faith. In the absence of faith there is fear and in the presence of fear, evil happens.

Before we see the second benefit, let’s see the below scripture.

Daniel 2:24 Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained to destroy the wise men of Babylon: he went and said thus unto him; Destroy not the wise men of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto the king the interpretation.

There is what is called, ordination for destruction. At the same time there is something called Ordination for deliverance. Arioch was the messenger that has been ordained to destroy, but before the time for him to start executing, he was interrupted. I want you to get this, the enemy also works with time, he waits for the best time to strike, but it takes those that knows how to take charge of their times to stop him. My prayer for you today is this, before the time the devil has planned to do that evil to you comes, you must have become unaccessible by him.

Arioch is a Hebrew name that means, lion-like”… And he was the one that has received the ordination to destroy. From the meaning of his name, you will see that he is a typology of the devil.  The bible says, the adversary, roars “like a lion” seeking for whom he may devour. With this, you can deduce that who the Bible was referring to in Daniel 2:24 was the devil.

The same way Arioch received the ordination to destroy them, is the same way every other infirmity received the ordination to destroy. But guess what, the presence of Daniel saved every other person around him. Hear me, through you, everyone around you is preserved.

  • A man under divine immunity is a means of preservation to others.

Through such men others are preserved. Hear me you are not just preserved, but through you, many are preserved. In every challenging season, let the anointing of Elohim upon your life extend to your household and beyond. There are some Ariochs ordained to destroy marriage.

  • Today let that female Arioch positioned in your house to destroy your marriage expire in a hurry.

There are some specific ariochs I am addressing. Basically those ones that have been ordained to destroy marriages, whether they are part of the family or not, as long as they are out to put asunder between the husband and wife. Today, let few days from now determine their judgment. She is out there confusing your husband, poisoning your husband against you, tarnishing your image before others, making you look like a stranger in your own house. Today we declare their end. May the force of nature be against them in the name of Jesus.

What of “Ariochs” that masquerade themselves in form of lecturers. They have been ordained by the devil to destroy students’ academic destiny. Today we pray, O Lord collide with them and end their wickedness. There are “Ariochs” that destroys relationship and career. Today may they start destroying themselves. Once good relationship is about being established in your life those Ariochs will be given assignment to destroy it. Today O Lord be not silent, unleash your anger on them by fire.

  • Under God, I forbid the furtherance of their activities in your lives. I raise a battle cry, and declare war against every household ariochs, academics Ariochs, and marriage Ariochs, in the name of Jesus. I pollute their ordination today.

 

2) Divine Immunity makes for the preservation of a man’s possessions.

 Exodus 9:4-6

4: And the Lord shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel.

5: And the Lord appointed a set time, saying, Tomorrow the Lord shall do this thing in the land.

6: And the Lord did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.

In that passage, cattle speaks of possessions. On that day of destruction in the land of Egypt, the Lord didn’t just preserve His children, but He also preserved their possession.

Divine immunity makes those things the Lord blessed your life with to be secured and out of the reach of the devil.

See the next scripture Job 1:9-10

9: Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for naught?

10: Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? Thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

The only way Satan could know that there was a Hedge around Job, was simply because he had gone to his house but couldn’t succeed. In the name of Jesus I reinforce the strength of your hedge today.

 

3)  Divine Immunity attracts divine blessings.

Job 1:10 “Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? Thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land’’.

The hedge around him speaks of divine immunity. We must understand that God is not a waster of resources. God does not release His blessings where it won’t be preserved. Job was blessed by God, because there was a hedge around his life. The hedge of the Lord round about a man’s life attracts blessings to him.

 

4) Divine Immunity is key to divine increase.

Still in  Job 1:10: “Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land’’.

When a man is divinely immunized, the substance of his house will start increasing. Now the reason why it will be increasing is simply because the devourer that will be eating it is under check. May the Lord cause you to increase all round. A man under the immunity of the Lord has been implicated to increase. So on this revelation, I declare your increase in the name of Jesus.

Now you can see why Job increased. The hedge of the Lord was round about him.  Today I prophesy under God upon your life: Financial increase, profitable connection increase, spiritual increase, academic increase, family increase, business increase in the name of Jesus. So shall it be in your life in the name of Jesus.

 

5) Divine Immunity makes the enemy to be afraid of you.

Deut 11:25: There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the Lord your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you.

His immunity makes the enemy unable to stand before you. This is a realm when witches will hear that you are around they will start checking out. The bible says, they can’t stand. This is when your presence alone sends a danger signal to them that the boss is in town.

The bible says, “there shall be no man able to stand…”

It simply means that they wish they could stand but unfortunately for them, they can’t stand. Today I prophesy, your enemies shall lack the ability to stand before you in the name of Jesus. Poverty is an enemy, therefore I forbid it from standing before you. Chest burn is an enemy, I disallow it from standing before you. Stagnation/delay are enemies, therefore I forbid them from standing before you. To every other spiritual satanic entity, released to put up a fight against you today they shall not stand. The immunity of the Lord makes your enemy to dread you.

Exodus 15:16: Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

His immunity was with His children so the enemies were humbled and humiliated. So, when your enemies start saying certain things against you, please don’t give a damn, it is an indication that they are afraid of you.

 

 6)  Divine Immunity engages God to fight for you.

Deut 1:30

The Lord your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;

The Lord fights for those He protects.

 

7)  Divine Immunity ensnares the enemy by his own wicked words against you.

Exo 10:28: “And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die.’’

Pharoah by himself declared his death. He said to Moses, make sure you don’t see me again for the day you’ll see me, you shall die. It happened that way. Moses never saw him again. They may have said, “over my dead body” that means they will die.  Now see the reply of Moses after Pharoah finished talking.

……. Vs 29

‘’And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more.’’

So when next they talk arrogantly like that, just tell them you have spoken well.

May you continually remain under the immunity of God.

 

8) Divine immunity launches you into the realms of unusual favour

Exodus 11:3:  And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.

 

The Egyptians (enemies) favoured them because they saw they couldn’t harm them. They saw that all the plagues that came upon their land never crossed Goshen. They saw that what they suffered, the Jews never suffered such. They saw that the cattle of the Jews never died when theirs were dying… Having seen all that, they had no choice than to favour them.

Understand this, when the enemy keeps throwing his arrows on you, and he sees it’s not having any effect, the next thing he will do is to find a way to make you his friend so that what is working for you will start working for him.

The Lord immunized them from the plagues of the Egyptians and made them a people to be favoured. The more the enemy is able to afflict you, the more he will continue, but if he sees the affliction is not affecting you, he will submit to you. He will by all means give you what you need and make himself a blessing to you. That is what the immunity of the Lord can do for a man.

It could be usual to be favoured, but it is very much unusual to be favoured by your own enemies that once thought they could swallow you.

May this season bring unto you, that dimension of Favour. May the immunity of the Lord you have stepped into in this season, launch you into the realms of unusual favour.

Let me show you a man that had such experience of favour through the immunity of the Lord.   Follow me as we read the below scripture:

Acts 28:2 “AND THE BARBAROUS PEOPLE SHEWED US NO LITTLE KINDNESS (unusual kindness): FOR THEY KINDLED A FIRE, AND RECEIVED US EVERY ONE, BECAUSE OF THE PRESENT RAIN, AND BECAUSE OF THE COLD.’’

This was Paul having been on a rough journey, the enemy thought to have drowned him, but the immunity of Jehovah never allowed him. Now having survived that storm, those that are meant to be his enemies, ended up becoming helpers to him.

Now having survived the storm, Apostle Paul found himself on an island called Melita where they met barbarous people. Who are the Barbarous people? These are extremely cruel people. Strong bible dictionary says barbarous people are those whose speeches are rude, rough and harsh.

But what was the reaction of this barbarous people towards Paul and his group? From that scripture above, Barbarous people showed Paul and his company great kindness (unusual favour), they received them and helped them to keep warm from cold.

This is what only God can do. Turning “the eater” to “the preserver”. 

I declare over your own life, this is your season you will see those the devil has set against you to eat up your flesh and drink your blood rather contribute to your well being and lifting in Jesus name.

Your enemies will by themselves give themselves assignment to see that things don’t go wrong around you.

If barbarous people that eat human flesh could see Paul and his men and forgot how to eat people, rather they kindled fire for them to get warm, then they will as well see you and give themselves similar assignment that will be a blessing to you. Having seen they can’t close your womb, they will come for the washing of the baby’s wears. Having tried all within their powers to stop your promotion, I tell you this day, they will be the one to bring your promotion letter to your office.

In this season I prophesy, let all that have made themselves your enemies, start becoming instrumental in the hands of God unto your lifting.

Divine Immunity Compels your enemies to favour you. You know why? It is because, your life  is a wonder to them

  

Conditions that Provokes Divine Immunity

1)  Absolute trust in God.

Psalm 125:1-2 They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. 2: As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even forever.

The promise of the lord as contained in those verses, is not for everyone. Accessing this promise of divine immunity is conditioned on your total trust in the Lord. The bible says, “they that trust in the Lord…” not they that trust in their uncles, parents, guns, siblings, escort, etc. Not those that trust in their connections. Not those that trust in their certificate. Not those that trust in their intellectual capacity. Not those that trust in their skill but those that only trust in the Lord. Not those that have plan “B”. Not that lady that trust in the money of those government officials.

Until your trust in Him is proven, you may not really enjoy the full package benefits of His immunity.

Who do you first consult when you’re landed in a mess?  That’s one of the ways to know where your trust lies. When they say to you, there is a place we shall go, that man “can see eh”, how do you respond to such?

You can meticulously observe and take all the precautions against infirmities, but you’re careless to observe the word of God to do them. Can’t you see where your trust is?

When the trust you claim to have in Him is tested in a fire, will it still remain?

Are you sure you didn’t trust Him because of what you enjoy from Him. If those things ceases, will you still trust him?

What does it mean to trust in the Lord? It is to always stand with God no matter the shaking, even if life has to go for it.

 

2) Absolute Obedience to His Word.

Exodus 15:26: And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

  • Not obey today and disobey tomorrow.
  • Not obey some and leave some.
  • Not conditional obedience.
  • Not obedience borne out of fear.
  • Not obey when all is well and stop when there is a challenge.

Your divine immunity is conditioned on your absolute obedience. So take note, anything that pushes you out from obeying God is actually pushing you out from being divinely immunized.

You can’t compromise your obedience and expect the full package. God can’t tell you go right, and you’re busy going left and you want to enjoy divine immunity.

 

3) Be Upright in your Dealings in Life.

Psalm 125:4: Do good, O Lord, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.

The heart of many is dangerous. The heart is like a market where so many transactions are taking place.

  • Uprightness is key to divine immunity.

Uprightness ushers you into where God dwells, and being where God is secures your life big time. See that your heart is upright.

 

4) Fear God

Psalm 34:7: The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

Your fear for God releases angels round about you to safeguard you.  When you fear God, there are certain things you won’t struggle to forsake. When you fear God, you will keep his commands.

When you fear God, you’ll activate the protective ministry of the angel of the Lord on your behalf. To fear God is to consciously desist from every form of compromise and double mindedness.

 

5) Right Association

Prov 13:20: He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

The company you associate yourself with has a way of placing you under divine immunity or taking you out of it.

Now see this scripture

1Sam 22:23: Abide thou with me, fear not: for he that seeketh my life seeketh thy life: but with me thou shalt be in safeguard.

 

That was David speaking to Abiathar… He said to him, “stay with me and you shall be secured” Hear me when you are with the right person(s), your life will be preserved. Paul assuredly said to the men he was travelling with when they had lost hope in Acts 27:22; “And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man’s life among you,”

The presence of Paul divinely immunized them against destruction

In Mark 4:35-40, “Jesus was in that boat and the storm came, they all would have been drowned but Jesus that was with them brought about their safety.’’

I charge you to re-examine your circle to avoid becoming a casualty. The bible says, companions of fools shall be destroyed. Don’t go and destroy yourself because you refuse to listen.

 

6) Kingdom Service

Exodus 23:25-26  And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. 26: There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

One of the ways God honours your service is by immunizing you.

Hear me you’re not wasting your time serving faithfully in that ushering department neither are you being stupid serving in that sanitation department. Your reward is far bigger than your service.

  • Your service in the kingdom secures your life.

Also hear this, for those of us that will always say I will release my money. Please get this, as much as I agree with you that money is part of the service, there is this part of service that requires your strength, you carrying that seat, you cutting that grass  or carrying that camera that can’t be substituted with money.

Sometimes the kingdom needs your time not your money. Sometimes it’s your energy not your money. God can’t give you strength so you can use it for that manual labour and you are bringing money. Anyway, your pastor will collect the money, but as long as heaven is concerned, you’ve not done any service.

Someone has to volunteer to clean that seat, change that decoration, cook that food and do that protocol. If everyone decides to donate money, who will do these things?

You must serve with your strength, time, resources, etc. Be sensitive to know when God needs either of these things from you. Remember, your service is connected to your divine immunity. Don’t be too neat to serve.

Sometimes you need to roll up your white shirt sir and carry that speaker. Sister, sometimes you need to remove that high heel and sweep the church. Do it, it won’t reduce your status. You keep complaining that the church seat is dusty all the time, yet you belong nowhere in the arm of the church.

All you need is the blessings of your pastor but you won’t fall in somewhere to make his/her work easy. No, you’re wrong. Fix yourself somewhere and serve faithfully.

7)  Become a blessing

Isa 65:8 Thus saith the Lord, as the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all.

The reason why the voice said destroy it not, was simply because there was a blessing in it. Now what if there was no blessing in it? God will always give instruction to destruction not to come near you as long as you’re a blessing to people.

Is there any blessing in you? Of course anybody can say yes, but we’ll know when the reason for you to release that blessing comes.

Are you a blessing to your neighbours, spouse, parents, pastor and the people around you?

The blessings inside of you form the basis of your preservation.

Bless people with words, money, your time, your gifts and skill, connection, intelligence. By all means be a blessing. The day you cease to bless is the day you start becoming vulnerable.

 

8) Seek godly counsel.

Prov 11:14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

 

Don’t do things because you think you can do them or because it appears good in your eyes. Always seek for counsel. Ask questions; seek for godly counselors’ opinion. When you do that you will dwell in safety.

  • May the Lord guide you to fulfill these conditions and as you do, you will be divinely immunized.
