The Unstoppable Generation 1 Peter 2:9-12 By Pastor Abioye Olaoluwa, RCCG National Youth Prayer Coordinator
From the beginning of the world till now there had been several generations and every generation answers to the name it’s called.
In Joshua 2:16-18, a generation of sword – men who believed in the God of their fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob even Moses and pledge their allegiance to Joshua. They did inherit the promise land and prosper therein.
But another generation arose in Judges 2:10;15, which knew neither the ordinances of God nor the ancient landmarks of their fathers. The result was that they did evil in God’s sight and He handed them over to their enemies. According to proverbs 30:11-14;
There is a generation who disregard and show less appreciation to their parents and leaders, of course; evil birds plucked out their eyes. Samson. Judges 13-16.
There is a self – righteous generation which relies so much on themselves but less of God. Alas! Their filthy – rag righteousness tore the kingdom away from them and they died the death of fools. Saul, 1 Kings 9-16
There is a generation of the proud and haughty, who believe all about life is by achievement and discoveries of men, without the knowledge and obedience towards God. They too soon discover like Solomon that all will end in vanity. Ecclesiastes 12:8
Another generation is that of the greedy, who trade the anointing and the grace of God for material benefits and hold lightly the holy things, they too soon end up like Gehazi, who got more than what he bargained for. He got so wealthy but too leprosy too enjoy the wealth. 2 Kings 5:27
There is an evil and adulterous generation who seek for signs without any interest in the God of Wonders Himself, they soon end like Hophni and Phinehas, who carried the Ark of God without God in the Ark.
To mention just few, there is also a Faithless Generation, who believed they are not better than their fathers, forgetting that God’s promise is that the latter glory shall surpass the former. Unless they retrace their steps and brace up they soon will hear what Elijah heard “………And anoint Elisha son of Shaphat, from Abel Meholah as prophets to take your place” 1 Kings 19:16
But what God is looking for is an “UNSTOPPABLE GENERATION!” those who will cover mountains like thunder clouds, blaze the trails like ministers of fire. At whose sight, the LORD’s enemies will melt and scatter.
They are to be so focused and purposeful that they won’t break ranks, trained commandoes of the Most High with accuracy and precision, ready for the end time revival. (Joel 2:1-10)
Like the 300 foxes whose tails were tied and set on fire by Samson, they shall set the whole world on fire with the Gospel of Truth and Grace, till Jesus Christ’s enemies get under His feet. (Judges 15:4-5).
While on their knees like Elijah, the earth controls the heavens and with their praise like Jehoshaphat armies, victories are won gallantly (1 Kings 17:1 and 2 Chronicles 20). They are Generation of face seeker and not hand seekers, whose heart is fixed like David to worship God in the beauty of His Holiness (Psalms 24:1-6)
Like Daniel and the three Hebrews who rejected the Kings’ meat, who no intimidation of the world, its rulers and worldly affairs can quiet them. Either in the furnace or the lion’s den they enjoy divine presence. (Daniel 1-6).
Just as Peter and his co-apostles turned the world upside down the right side up for God, they are ready to witness and not disobey the Heavenly vision before the high and the mighty in word and in power. Like Paul before Agrippa (Acts of the Apostles).
They shall be good examples like Timothy to others in word, conversation, charity, spirit and faith, all done in purity (1 Timothy 4:12)
But will submit to the Will of God, hating sin with passion like our LORD Jesus Christ, who obeyed the Father with humility, unconditional love towards the sinners with a sacrificial life.
May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
