DOUBLE FOR TROUBLE
“As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant, I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit where no water is. Turn you to the stronghold, ye prisoners of hope: even today do I declare that I will render double unto thee.” Zechariah 9:11-12
The prisoners in the “…pit where no water is…” refers to those chained down in hades; those doomed for destruction through physical annihilation and spiritual separation. The good news is that the blood of Jesus has answered the question.
There is a rescue for the captive and reward of double honor for all the troubles gone through. We have an Advocate that is not just moved by the feeling of our infirmities but so compassionate to even render double for our troubles. However, the challenge to everyone is the commandment to turn to the stronghold to receive help in time of need.
Don’t stay helpless in your situation; turn to the stronghold. Help is readily waiting for you! Believers’ stronghold is the blood covenant. Dr. David Oyedepo said; whatever you don’t want, you don’t watch. What you don’t resist has the right to remain. What you don’ confront, you cannot conquer. Open fire through the blood covenant, you will indeed have double for your trouble.
Please take note of this; “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” – Romans 3:23
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ”- Romans 6:23
If you don’t have Jesus Christ in your life yet; you are not safe. Call on Him today; He will not turn His back on you.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Romans 10:13
