Are you ready for some sevenfolds to happen in your life? Have you been in a battle for your marriage, your money, your ministry, your family, your nation, your church? Have you been warring for the promises God has spoken over your life? Are you ready for sevenfolds? You are not alone. Many in the body of Christ are battle weary, they wonder if this war is ever going to become a victory in reality not just in theory. Take heart my friends, God sees what we are dealing with and He is releasing truths that will refresh our souls in this hour. Get ready to release and receive some sevenfolds!

One of the weapons of my warfare is to pray a Psalm a day. The Psalmists give vernacular to situations individually, corporately and nationally that creates a prayer focus God wants, because it is His word, rather than what I may want. Notwithstanding, I was praying Psalm 79 this morning and the Lord caused verse 12 to jump off the page for me. It says, “Return to our neighbors (the enemies of Israel), sevenfold into their bosom the reproach with which they have reproached You, O Lord.” I had never seen that sevenfold before. The Lord says we can release a sevenfold reproach on our enemies. I was elated.

I don’t know about you, but the enemy has reproached the name of Yahweh in my life for far too long. To reproach means, to taunt, defy, shame, disgrace, defame, expose, and strip or pull off. God has given us promises through His word and through prophecy, through time spent alone listening to His voice and through the body of Christ, and the enemy has been taunting us for far too long. When I discovered to reproach is to defy, I remembered what Goliath said to David in 1 Samuel 17:10 “The Philistine said, I defy (reproach) the armies of Israel this day; give me a man that we may fight.” For 40 days and 40 nights, the enemy was reproaching, taunting, defying the God of Israel. Goliath was using psychological warfare on the armies of Israel and it paralyzed them. Many in the body of Christ have been paralyzed by the enemy’s psychological warfare, but I am here to tell you, the enemy was defeated then and will be defeated again.

You see, David, like us, was a carrier of the ark of the covenant, he knew that in 1 Samuel 5 & 6, the god of the Philistines, Dagon, fell facedown before the ark then and would do the same again. So, when Goliath came out taunting David, David came back with sticks and stones saying, I’m done with your taunting, your reproaching, your defying of the God of Israel and he slung a stone and it caused Goliath to fall facedown before David, just like Dagon did before the ark of the covenant. The Philistine spirit is a taunting, defying, reproaching spirit, that Psalm 79:12 says, we can decree sevenfold reproach on.

I see God releasing sevenfold reproach on the enemies of Yahweh, Yeshua and His people. I see the Lord releasing sevenfold return according to Proverbs 6:31, which says, “The thief must pay sevenfold when he is caught, he must give up all the wealth of his house.” We are going to see sevenfold reproach being released and the sevenfold restoration being received as God Himself rolls back the reproach off of His people, who are called by His name for such a time as this. Stand and keep on standing my friends, the enemy was defeated multiple times then and the same enemy will be defeated again.

T.E.D. Messengers

One of the more well-known pubic speaking platforms in the world is the TED Talk. If you have never watched a TED Talk, you can find them quite easily, but the best part about a TED Talk is that they are concise, content rich, conversations that bring an idea, a truth or a proposal to a public setting from someone who has done extensive research on the subject in which they are presenting. I believe this is what we as communicators of the gospel are called to be, we are called to be a T.E.D. Messengers. Now, of course the original TED Talk is not what we see on the videos online, in the kingdom of God, a T.E.D. Messenger is one who has been Trained, Equipped and Deployed with a Message.

The question I have for you is who trained you? Who equipped you? And Who are you looking to deploy you? Many people who have a message are trained by a school, a prayer room, or a ministry that carries a specific message or mandate, but what if that is not what God intended for you and for I as believers in the kingdom of God. Was the apostle Paul, trained, equipped and deployed by a man or a ministry? Who was Peter trained, equipped and deployed by in order to bring the message he did on Pentecost, when 3000 got saved? The answer to both of these questions is, Jesus Christ Himself. Paul said the gospel he preached was given to him by revelation, directly from the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. Peter, we know was trained, equipped and deployed by Jesus Christ in the flesh. Now what about you, who has trained and equipped you, who is going to deploy you?

The reason this question is being presented is because if you are trained, equipped and deployed by a man or his ministry, then there is an expectation that you will carry the message of that man or his ministry. But if you are trained and equipped by Jesus Christ Himself, then when He is ready to deploy you, He will send you out with His message, the gospel of the kingdom, for John said in 1 John 2:27”As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about ALL things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.” The apostle John said there are people who are taught by the anointing and they are taught to abide in Christ and as they abide (John 15) they are taught even more.

These ones that are arising in this hour, during this decade of the mouth, Hebrew year 5780, will be ones who come with the gospel of the kingdom, not the doctrines of men. They have been in hiding, by invitation, and they have been taught by the Word of God, they are ones that abide in the secret place of the Most High, they are lovers of the Word of God, who is God. As they arise with the message of the kingdom, it will shake the religious system, just as the message of Peter on Pentecost shook the Temple system. Many doctrines of men will be countered by the Word of God. They will not seek to stir up controversy, but the Truth that is going to set people free is the Word of God and when the undiluted Word of God is preached, systems will shake, people will be delivered and Jesus Christ will be glorified.

T.E.D. Messengers are ones that have been trained by the Lord, equipped by the Lord and are about to be deployed by the Lord Himself, they carry the message of the Lord and the Truth will set people free. It is the new wine coming out of the new wineskins, it is going to taste different and some will reject it, but they will not be able to deny that it is Truth. The lukewarm church, which has sought to entertain the people will lose its influence, for people will know the Truth when they hear it. The Truth is a person, Jesus Christ, this is His gospel of the kingdom, the eternal gospel and it is going to be music to the ears of those who are tired of dead religion. Ready or not, here comes the T.E.D. Messengers.
