I AM GETTING OUT
Dr. D. K. Olukoya
Beloved, our message this week is entitled, “I am getting out.” Please bear in mind that being a Christian does not give you an automatic victory but doorway to the victory that has been won for you by Christ. This victory comes when you identify your position in God and you use all the equipment available to you to chase the enemy out of your territory. Spiritual warfare is tough but the weapons that God provides for His children are tougher. The truth is that many people will continue to have problem until they are determined to get out of their bondage and declare like Esther; “If I perish I perish.” Then the devil will know that there is problem and the challengers will know that you mean business. Do not prefer to remain in bondage to any sickness, or any unfavorable situation. Declare now that you are getting out of it.
Before we dig deeper into the words of God, let us pray: Father, in the name of Jesus, by your divine power, open our understanding as we go into this message and let the chariot of every stubborn pursuer drown in the Red Sea. Thank you Father, in Jesus’ name. Our first Scripture reference is taken from Exodus 15:2-10: “The Lord is my strength and song and he has become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him. The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name. Pharaoh’s chariot and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone. Thy right hand, O Lord, has become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble. And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as a heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, I will pursue I will over take, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.” And so shall your enemy sink in the mighty waters, in the name of Jesus. You may view this prayer point as aggressive which is in order, but the devil your arch enemy is aggressive himself and unkind. Or how does one explain the issue of six out of seven children in a family going insane and the only one that is not mad is using all his money to look after those who are mad.
Verses 11-15: “Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders. Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. The people shall hear and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina. Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon then: all inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.” Your enemy shall be amazed, trembling shall take hold of them and they shall be melted away, in the name of Jesus. Verses 16-19: “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 thy people pass over, which thou hast purchased. Thou shall bring them in and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O Lord, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the sanctuary. O Lord, which thy hands have established. The Lord shall reign for ever and ever. For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.” This is what the Bible calls the song of Moses. It is the song of victory.
One of the most interesting verses in the Bible is what we find in Revelation 12:12: “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”
