1 Kings 17: 1-7

Elijah Proclaims a Drought

1 And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the LORD God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word.”

2 Then the word of the LORD came to him, saying, 3 “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. 4 And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.”

5 So he went and did according to the word of the LORD, for he went and stayed by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. 6 The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. 7 And it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.

An embargo is a limitation placed on a particular person, place or situation. Once the embargo is in place nothing can move the situation forward except by the mighty outstretched arm of God.

There are three types of embargo, Oral, Mind, Written embargoes. We will not have much time to go into the details of the various types. That will be for a more opportune time.

But for certain somebody’s long standing limitation is being lifted today in Jesus name!

Oral embargo – An oral embargo is a limitation on something, someone or a tangible entity through a spoken word. It is usual spoken by someone in higher spiritual authority over you, e.g God, your pastor, husband, mother, father, or any one you have opened a door of authority to e.g the devil or any of his agents (of course there must be a door open for this to happen).

Mind Embargo – The Soul/mind part of the triune human being is where choices are made. It is where willpower lies, and we all know that all the devil has to do is make you see things they way he see things. Once you are in agreement with him, the battle is won by him.

Written embargo – This is an embargo enforced by decree. Many of us have entered into embargoes by simply signing otherwise harmless pieces of paper. e.g

• Credit card applications

• Bank overdrafts

• School loans

• False marriages etc.,

God is removing you from them today in Jesus name, Amen.

Pray a prayer like this:

• By the mercy of God, I move from overdraft to excess today in Jesus name.

• Every valley afflicting my destiny, be filled up today in Jesus name.

There is always a need to pray and war against evil manipulation resulting in embargoes against the children of God. Proverbs 25:26 says it that, “Like a muddied spring or a polluted well is a righteous man who gives way to the wicked.”

So we must pray to lift off any embargoes placed on our destinies today in Jesus name.

We will deal quickly with all three in the small time frame we have. All you have to do is tune your heart to the word of God, and be attentive and obedient to the prophetic word as it comes. Someone is receiving a word that will transform him/her this morning in Jesus name.


We can never discount the power of a spoken word.

Isaiah 40:8 says, ‘the grass withers and the flowers fail, but the WORD of our God stands forever.

It is a scriptural fact that the Word of God is the most powerful force in existence.

Therefore the spoken word can make or unmake

When someone in authority speaks a word into creation, if its for good, angels pick it up, if its for bad, fallen angels pick it up. Isaiah 55:11 says God’s word never falls to the ground but goes to prosper in that which it has been sent.

Even a word spoken negatively will go and manaifest if it has the authority to manifest. That is why the bible says the curse causeless shall not come Proverbs 26:2

You will pray like this;

• Every curse of saints over my destiny be broken now in Jesus name.

• Every embargo placed on my moving forward by wicked elders be lifted in Jesus name

• Every embargo of evil load, weighing me down, be removed by the Hands of Jesus in Jesus name.

• Every family collective embargo delaying my spiritual and physical progress, be lifted in Jesus name.

• Every self imposed embargo I have placed myself in by –ve utterances, be broken now in Jesus name.

• O Lord by your mercy and grace upon me this morning, remove every brass heaven and brass floor in Jesus name.
