Topic: SPIRITUAL ZOMBIES
Text: Matthew 11:16 – 17
Ministering: Dr. Daniel Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
Matthew 11:16-17 – “But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.”
Let me talk to you as a prophet before I go on further. 2020 was the last year of a decade. In 2020, the Lord told us that there will be new visions, new dreams, new ideas. That is, for the decade of 2020 to 2030.
The Lord said that the first three (3) years (2021-2023), will require intensive prayers and intensive warfare. The Lord said it is going to be a turbulent year; very problematic. The Lord also said something very interesting, that is why I am sharing this with you. The Lord said, this is a decade for youths if they will take the bull by its horns.
The Lord wants to develop spiritual warlords among youths who will operate as a spiritual battleaxe of the Lord. So this year 2022, will be a year of refocusing to get back your original visions.
The Bible says, I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh, your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions. This is the stand of God for young people.
This year 2022 should be a year of reset – a year to reset yourself. So, what I am telling you young people is that this year should be a year to refocus your spiritual camera: recast your vision. Why? It is also a time when the wicked will become more desperate. Just looking at the newspapers and social media, you will see what has been happening.
PRAY: (Raise up your right hand) Powers, assigned to use me as a sacrifice, you are a liar, die, in the name of Jesus.
So, this year 2022, ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters; calls for more intensive kinds of prayers. And calls for more fellowship with God in your closet.
As I am standing here, I feel so sorry for the young people who are not soaked in prayers yet: who think those who are praying are mad; who did not sit down to study the scriptures to see that of everything we do in the house of God, the devil can do better. The devil can preach, teach the Bible, give motivational talks.
As a matter of fact, the devil is the best pastor. The devil is the only pastor who knows the address of every member. There is no pastor that knows the address of every member.
Everything we do in the house of God, the devil can do better. The devil can sing. In fact, he was the first choir master in heaven. The Bible says that the instruments of music were made complete in him. If you see the devil, you don’t need organ, guitar; he is music.
The only thing we do in the house of God that the devil cannot do is to pray. Why? Who does he wants to pray to? He cannot pray to God. That is why when the devil wants to deal with a Christian, marriage; the first thing he will take out to that life is prayer. Once the prayer life goes down, every other thing is story.
The Bible did not say preach without ceasing, teach the Bible without ceasing, do evangelism without ceasing. He says, pray without ceasing. There are many young people scattered in various fellowships where there are no prayers – just wait and see, the time will come, they will still make the prayers. Time will tell. That is, “last last, everybody will be wise”
While I was saying it about 20 years ago, saying “all these churches laughing at us now, they will still come to pray MFM prayers.” Who is teaching them now? In the house where I live, there are four (4) churches surrounding us. I always enjoy myself when they are holding vigils. This one is calling MFM prayers, that one is calling MFM prayers, even the catholic close by, I even hear them calling MFM prayers.
I said it then, I am saying it now. Mark my words: All those young people scattered all over the place, with prayer less fellowships, they are coming to pray. My prayer is that it will not be too late before they begin to get wise.
This is a very serious matter and I want you to understand. So, the more time you spend with God this year, the more He will give you dreams, revelations and the gift of discernment.
To stay before God, it does not mean you have to be praying all the time. You can stay quiet before God and meditate. You can spend hours in meditation.
So, 2022 is a year of greater exploit but it calls for focus, boldness and courage to dare impossible tasks. The Lord will empower the young ones who are ready to take the battle to the gate and the Lord will now begin to remove ineffective feathers to give room to new young warriors. And I pray that you will be part of those warriors in the name of Jesus.
So, as young people, we need to break the seige of the devil in this season. Like I was telling some people sometimes ago, if you can pray in tongues for 30 minutes a day, no English, no vernacular everyday for 3 months; by the time the 3 months will be over, you would have become another person, your life will change.
It is insanity to be doing the same thing over and over again and be expecting a different result. So, we should expect opposition from the enemy. We should expect the enemy to be raging. The battle will be intensive and there will be plenty casualties.
===> I pray that you will be a Victor, in the name of Jesus.
A mighty window of celebration and visitation is prepared for the young people if they can key into it.
Jesus described His own generation as playful children in the market place. The current generation is like a drunken man, trying to go home with a boat, and was paddling the canoe, paddled the canoe all night, not knowing that the canoe has been tied down somewhere.
This current generation of youths unfortunately, that is why we need to change the narratives, is like their brain is upside down. Like I use to tell you in those days, their head is not correct.
If a girl is not m*d, 20 years old, what are you doing with a man of 70 years old. Is the brain in the correct position or the feet? How can you say a man who is speaking in tongues but smoking cigarette will change, I will marry him. Have you succeeded in changing yourself? You think you can change anybody? If he is not changed before you marry him, he will not change after the marriage.
The current generation is like the generation of people that the enemy is killing them slowly and they are praising the enemy killing them. Social media has killed many people now. Can you not see that this thing has become a distraction?
The current generation is like a generation where the enemy has put poison inside scotch egg and you are enjoying the scotch egg, not knowing that it is only the cover that is good.
It is a generation that is not ready to hear the whistle of the hunter and preparing go get lost – Bewitched but praising the power bewitching them.
If you want me to use my finger to describe the generation we are now, from which we need deliverance; I call it the Generation of Zombies. Zombies are dead people that a witch doctor or a sorcerer has revived. And they are now under the control of the witch doctor that revived them. They have no will of their own.
So, when somebody is now a spiritual zombie, he is a human being whose spiritual eyes are closed.
===> I am praying that the Lord will open your spiritual understanding, in the name of Jesus.
A zombie is a walking dead
This is a generation beloveth of serious spiritual zombie.
