The Divine Visitation of The Lord, by Pastor Victor Olobaniyi
The visitation of the Lord is accompanied by different and all sort of miraculous happening as seen severally in the Bible.
We shall hereby look into some few things that happens when the good Lord visit a place, or a person in particular.
The visitation of the Lord brings SALVATION into a man’s life, Paul in Acts 9 vs 1-9, and prisoners in Acts 16 vs 25-40.
The visitation of the Lord brings RESTORATION to Peter in John 21 vs 1- 17.
Turn CURSES to BLESSINGS and BARRENESS to FRUITFULNESS, as in the case of Abraham in Genesis 18 vs 1-18.
Changes LACK to ABUNDANCE as found with Peter and some of Jesus disciples, in the book of John 21 vs 3,5 and 6.
Converts SADNESS to JOY, and this happens severally in the all the places that Jesus visited in the Bible.
First of all in the wedding in the Cana of Galilee, He took away shame and reproach of the bridegroom by turning water into wine therefore turning lack into abundance that would have ridicule the marriage ceremony. John 2 vs 1-11.
Secondly the impotent man that was healed at the pool of Bethsaida in John 5 vs 8-9,Jesus brought joy to the man as He healed him of the infirmities of 38 years.
Zaccheaus the tax collector received salvation at the encountering of Jesus which delivers to him everlasting joy.Luke 19 vs 1-10.
The mad man of Gadara, became completely sane after a visitation of the Lord and from then became a well known evangelist in the region. Mark 5 vs 1 – 20.
The joy of Mary and Martha knows no bound as their dead brother Lazarus jack back to life in John 11 vs 38-44.
The woman with the issue of blood for 12 years was made whole and her joy fully restored as she touched the hem of the garment of Jesus as recorded in Mark 5 vs 25-29.
Imagine the joy of the ten lepers when they were made whole in the book of Luke 17 vs 11-19.
These few miracles were recorded to have happened as the Lord visited a place, the same Lord is still alive and there can be a repeat performance of those things and even greater things if we can get Him to visit us.
I pray that may the Lord visit us as Individual, Family and as a Church in this season and onwards in Jesus name. (Amen).
I pray that the Lord’s visitation to you today will bring unto you divine Healing and Health, Favour, Victories over failures, Financial freedom, Academic success, unmatchable Knowledge and Wisdom, Victory without a fight to mention but a few in Jesus name. Amen.
