The Set Time Has Come.

Good morning brethren. You are welcome to today’s edition of Arise Shine.                                     

Sing a song from your heart to appreciate the mercy of God that has not allowed you or any member of your family to be kidnapped or died of coronavirus that ravaged the whole world for a season and for making you alive this morning.

 Let’s pray:

Our most high God, we thank you that we are still alive and well. Thank you for it has pleased you to count us among the living souls this morning. We are not taking you for granted. Please accept our gratitude this morning in Jesus’ name. Amen.

This morning, I want us to look at a topic which says:

Psalm 102:13 says, “Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favor her, yea, the set time, is come”.

Zion in the above verse of the scripture can be Nigeria, it can be a family and it can be an individual. It can be you, me or someone by our side.

Poor Zion is now in distress, but there will come a time for her relief and succor (Psalms 102:13):

Thou shalt arise and have mercy upon Zion. The hope of deliverance is built upon the goodness of God

Why will God have mercy upon Zion?

Because She has become an object of your pity.

God shall arise and have mercy, shall stir up Himself to do it, shall do it in contempt of all the opposition made by the Zion’s enemies.

The zeal of the Lord of hosts shall do this.

It is very encouraging that there is a time set for the deliverance of Zion, which not only will come some time, but will come at the time appointed, the time which Infinite Wisdom has appointed (and therefore it is the best time) and which Eternal Truth has fixed it to, and therefore it is a certain time, and shall not be forgotten nor further adjourned.

At the end, the time to favour Zion, by delivering her from the daughter of Babylon, (Boko Haram, Bandits, Kidnappers, Adult-nappers etc) was to come, and at length it did come.

In the Bible, Zion was reported to be in ruins, that is, the temple that was built in the city of David.

In Nigeria, the economy and security are in ruins.

I don’t know about your family, but in so many families, people had nothing to eat yesterday night and there is no hope for what they will eat today.

The favouring of Zion is the building of the temple up again, as it is explained, Psalms 102:16.

The favouring of Nigeria is for God to put those that fear Him and His own elect at the helm of affairs.

In your family and mine, it is to replace our shame and sorrow with His new wave of glory, joy and full-scale laughter.

There is need for us to cry out to the Lord like Daniel in Daniel 9:17 to cause His face to shine upon us as an individual, as a family and as a nation because we are desolate.

The building up of Zion is as great a favour to any people as they can desire. No blessing more desirable to a ruined state than the restoring and re-establishing of their rights and privileges.

How can we be favoured, rebuilt and restored?

We need to come to an Advocate called Jesus. He is the only one who can plead our cause before His Father.

Are you ready to come with me to Jesus now? We are not going to pay for His services which He has concluded thousands of years ago on the cross of Calvary. All we need to do is to COME unto Him, confess our sins and forsake them and above all, to accept Him as our Lord and personal Saviour with a promise to serve Him till eternity.

If you find the above message relevant and possibly applicable to you, why not join me and let’s cry unto God this morning to arise and have mercy on us.

It does not matter how battered, with Jesus Christ, it can be better.

Good morning, friends.



If you have been blessed by this Christian blog site, and you haven’t

given your life to Christ Jesus, I now invite you to make Jesus Christ The Lord

of your life by sincerely saying this prayer:

“Dear Lord God, My Heavenly Father, I come to You in the

Name of Jesus Christ. Your Word says, “…..whosoever

shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21).

I ask Jesus to come into my heart to be the LORD of my life.

I receive eternal life into my spirit and according to Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth

the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from

the dead, thou shalt be saved,” I declare that I am saved; I am born –

again; I am a child of God! I now have Christ dwelling in me, and greater is He

that is in me than he that is in the world! (1 John 4:4). I now walk in the

consciousness of my new life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah! Amen!

Congratulations! You are now a child of God.

Always, expect a new post daily!
