Types of Reproach. Reproach has no colour but it manifests in many ways that could not be denied. Physical reproach is synonymous with all manner of bodily affliction and diseases that limit one from making progress in life. Emotional reproach is synonymous with what weighs you down in your mind that manifests in the physical. Career reproach is what makes you to have no feasible means of livelihood. There is no country you have not been to, no occupation you have not practiced but life is still a major struggle. I know a man that had 52 jobs in 6 months and yet he is still struggling. Words will fail me to describe what is called matrimonial reproach, some are being mocked because they cannot even secure a life partner, they are suffering from marital delay, marital manipulation, marital challenges, it is called matrimonial reproach. Some have been married many years without children. Some lost their marriage for reasons beyond their comprehension and are now saddled with social stigma in addition to huge financial responsibilities. Financial reproach. Spiritual reproach. Academic and mental reproach - all your mates are passing exams and no matter how you study, sometimes you even teach them, but you still fail.
How does reproach come?
1. Inherited reproach. Unfortunately we don't choose which country or family where we are born. Some are born to families of never do wells, cursed and poor. For example Reuben was cursed by Jacob his father Gen. 49:3-4) and his children inherited the reproach. "Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but, forasmuch as he defiled his father's bed, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright. 1 Chr 5:1-2. Those who should inherit the blessing of first born became vagabonds and strugglers. Some are born with situations and condition they cannot explain but it's reproachful. Jesus confronted such situations. One boy was born blind in John Chapter nine and Jesus changed the reproach to glory. That will be your portion. Whatever reproach that has followed you from birth will be terminated in the month of no more reproach in Jesus name. Your ugly feet at a beautiful gate shall be made beautiful in Jesus name.
2. Circumstantial reproach. Unexpected tragedies. Some reproach come while people are pursuing life. A classic example is what happened to a woman called Naomi. She emigrated from the land of Israel to the land of Moab because of economic challenges called 'famine and drought' Ruth 1:1-7. In a space of few years she met with life tragedies that was beyond what she was running from. She lost her husband and two sons in quick succession. Hear what she said: "And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi (sweetness), call me Mara (Bitter) for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me. I went out full and the Lord hath brought me home again empty: why then call ye me Naomi, seeing the Lord hath testified against me, and the Almighty hath afflicted me? People are raped, people are lied against and are sent to jail for what they know little or nothing about and they suffer reproach. Even when they served the terms and come out they are regarded as ex-convicts. Some have accidents and are bed ridden for no fault of theirs and are going not only through the pains but the reproach. God is saying he will touch you in a special way this month and remove your reproach!
