THE BIRDS THAT ARE AFTER YOUR DESTINY

GENESIS 15:7-11; ECCLESIASTES 10:7

“And he said unto him, I am Jehovah that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it. And he said, O Lord Jehovah, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it? And he said unto him, Take me a heifer three years old, and a she-goat three years old, and a ram three years old, and a turtle-dove, and a young pigeon. And he took him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each half over against the other: but the birds divided he not. And the birds of prey came down upon the carcasses, and Abram drove them away” (GENESIS 15:7-11)

ECCLESIASTES 10:7

“ I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking like servants upon the earth”

The man Abraham called by God was confused about the future. God made a promise conceerning his destiny but demanded a sacrifice. Destiny can be procured and secured by the power of sacrifice. He complied but strange birds came to fight against the sacrifice - channel of his destiny. At his old age, fought against these birds. He drove them away. We have many Satanic vultures fighting over our destinies. We should not allow them.

However, If these birds succeed,the result was what Solomon saw – (Ecclesiastes 10:7)

What is destiny?

a.Things which God has preordained for your future.

b.The program of God for your life.

c.What you were created to be and do.

d.A fixed order of things.

e.Invisible necessity (Original intention of God recorded in heaven)

f.The purpose of God for you in this earth. (why you were born)

God had ordained that you be a prince and one to be a blessing to your generation but the enemy wants you be a servant. These birds want to overrule what God has ordained for you.

The birds that came for this sacrifice were Vultures.

Their aim today,is to take you by surprise and see that you are not where you ought to be.

THE VULTURES

a. A large bird of prey.

b. They do not kill other animals rather eats the ones already killed or died

c. They feed on dead flesh

d. People do not like seeing it

e.They can smell death in a distance

f. They are too ugly

g.Feed on others and no one feels to eat them when they die.

h.There is something in them which make them to know when something is about to die

i.In a warfront, when a shot soldier is fighting his last breath to live, the vulture waits patiently for the person’s death.

j.They have sharp sight and high sense of smell.

Many physical objects have spiritual counterparts.

Spiritually,these birds are many things or characters which seek to devour spiritual destinies in a life. You must chase them away to secure your destiny and future.

WHAT ARE THESE BIRDS?

1. Self.

This bird has devoured many destinies too. As some people are making some sacrifices to see God bless them, thIs bird is seriously fighting to make one a slave.

i. Self made a king to leave his throne by punishment and became animal (King Nebuchadnezzar-Daniel 4:28-33)

ii. Self made a king turned to leprous after much achievement( King Uzziah-2 Chronicles 26:16-23)
