Summary: The steps that must be taken for a broken foundation to be restored. This articles serves as a sequel message to Dealing with and Separation from Evil Foundations.
By Bode Ayodele
In a previous message we treated Dealing With and Separating from Evil Human Foundations. In the message we noted that certain individuals were building on foundations that had already been destroyed through the sins of their ancestors. The next issue is after separation how do we restore or repair a damaged human foundation?
Or simply put, can a foundation be repaired?
The answer to this is found in the book of Isaiah:
Isaiah 58: 12
And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
The foregoing clearly indicates that though foundations can be pulled down or destroyed they can equally be raised up and restored.
This applies to the foundation of humans beings likewise.
The bible reveals in this passage that the foundations of many generations can be restored and that the Lord can use an individual or nation (you in this case,) to repair what has been destroyed.
Brethren do not be deceived, there is a pathway to greatness and this pathway can be destroyed; but the good news is that in can also be restored. The Lord will restore your path way to greatness today in Jesus name.
The lord will repair your breech.
Please before you proceed take the following prayer point:
Oh Lord, restore my path way to greatness and glory in the name of Jesus.
Oh Lord, restore my pathway to promotion and success in the name of Jesus.
Furthermore, in Isaiah 44: 26 the bible states:
Isaiah 44:26 That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up her decayed places.
This passage indicates that the pronouncement of restoration of the servant of God upon the city of God shall be fulfilled.
Prophecy: I stand as the servant of God and declare that you shall be inhabited with blessings and goodness. I declare that your foundation shall be re- built and your decayed blessings shall be restored in the name of Jesus.
After a man has been separated from his evil foundation, below, we examine what must take place in the person’s life for his damaged foundation to be restored.
1) Divine Visitation
This is revealed in Isaiah 32:15.
Isaiah 32:15 Until the spirit shall be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness shall be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be counted for a forest.
The preceding scripture reveals that a destroyed foundation will not be restored until the spirit is poured upon it from on high.
Here the bible refers to the Holy Spirit.
In other words the bible reveals that one must experience heavenly or divine visitation.
Now, after experiencing this divine visitation according to this scripture the following things shall happen:
1) A wilderness/ desert shall become a fruitful field
2) A fruitful field, shall be counted as a forest
The first sentence means where nothing good was produced before shall now produce much fruit.
The next sentence reveals that where there is much fruit the fruit shall be turned into a forest.
Now picture a forest in your mind. Next imagine it as a forest full of fruits. Which means wherever you turn to in the forest what you shall encounter are fruits:
Fruits of goodness.
Fruits of blessings.
Fruits of success and glory.
There shall be no empty ground to step upon. Everywhere shall be populated with fruits!
Please take this prayer point:
Oh Lord, please turn my wilderness into a fruitful field and my fruitful field into a forest in the name of Jesus.
From what we have read so far, for a man to experience restoration after he has been separated from his evil foundation, he must experience divine visitation.
2) Change in Identity
The next thing a man must experience from a biblical viewpoint for his foundation to be restored is his identity must change.
This is illustrated in the book of Isaiah
And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.
This passage states the Lord shall call you a new name.
