The Priestly Blessings | And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron the Priest and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them – Numbers 6:22-28

Dearly beloved, in the time table of your loving Father in heaven, this time is unique in deed.
 You in particular are in the kingdom for a time like this.
Giving excuses like Queen Esther initially did when the Jews were to be exterminated by Hamman would not suffix.
Thank God, she rose to the occasion, ultimately and God used her to turn around the plot of Hamman.

Est 4:11 — Est 4:14  All the king’s servants, and the people of the king’s provinces, do know, that whosoever, whether man or woman, shall come unto the king into the inner court, who is not called, there is one law of his to put him to death, except such to whom the king shall hold out the golden sceptre, that he may live: but I have not been called to come in unto the king these thirty days. And they told to Mordecai Esther’s words. Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

God is set to use you too, at a time like this, when satan and his cohorts are working tirelessly to ensnare believers globally and make them to turn back from following the Lord.
They shall fail in Jesus name, as you rise to the occasion like Queen Esther did.
 Bible days believers have engaged themselves in travailing for believers from sliding back.
Our Lord Jesus Christ and others were exemplary examples. Follow after them and rescue them from perishing through your intercession.

Jesus.

Luk 22:31 — Luk 22:32  And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

Hebrews 7:25  Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

Moses.

Deu 9:18 — Deu 9:20  And I fell down before the Lord, as at the first, forty days and forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of all your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger. For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith the Lord was wroth against you to destroy you. But the Lord hearkened unto me at that time also. And the Lord was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him: and I prayed for Aaron also the same time.

Paul apostle.

Gal 4:19  My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,

Epaphras.

Colossians 4:12  Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

Yourself.

Isa 62:1 — Isa 62:2  For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace,and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness,and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name,which the mouth of the Lord shall name.

Isaiah 62:7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

The Priestly Blessings | Speak unto Aaron the Priest and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel – Numbers 6:22-28

 

Dearly beloved do you know that as far back as to the time the children of Israel were in the wilderness, God raised up priests to be blessing them. See this.

Num 6:22 — Num 6:27 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.

In the same token, our Lord Jesus Christ has raised up believers of all ages and you in particular to be priests to advance His kingdom. 

1 Peter 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Rev 5:9 — Rev 5:10  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Rev 20:5 — Rev 20:6  But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

The Priestly Blessings | Speak unto Aaron the Priest and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel – Numbers 6:22-28

 

In fact this is one of the major reasons why you were saved.

Rev 1:5 — Rev 1:6  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

You are the priest through which all the people in your world of influence shall be converted through your lifestyle and your intercession.
Your unsaved spouse children parents siblings close and extended family members neighbors and colleagues shall be damned, if you fall to fulfill your priesthood office .
You shall not fail in Jesus name.
The Priestly Blessings | Speak unto Aaron the Priest and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel – Numbers 6:22-28

 

Ezk 22:30 — Ezk 22:31  And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God.

It is for this cause that our Lord Jesus Christ deplored the dearth of commited labourers in the kingdom now and charges you to pray for God to raise them up.

Mat 9:36 — Mat 9:38  But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Our loving Father in heaven also made a Clarion call for labourers in the kingdom, the response was not encouraging.

Isaiah 6:8  Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

The reason for this is because all, and  may be you are included too, are seeking their own, not the things of Jesus Christ.

Phi 2:21  For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.

Dearly beloved, this global contagious epidemic, referred to as the  Corona Viirus, has much to do than to infect human bodies.

It is a programmed and deliberate ploy of the devil to put in place restrictions that would impart negatively on the believers spiritual means  of  edification.
 This ultimately will engender  mass backsliding of believers globally and then launch an attack against them to disqualify them from readiness for the dawning rapture.
No wonder the blessed Holy Spirit says you should not be ignorant of the devices of the devil.

2 Corinthians 2:11  Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Dearly beloved, you must be wiser than the devil to safe guard yourself and others from being swayed by the devil’s wiles.

Remember the promises you have if you engage intercession on your own or joining with members of your households.
1. Yourself

Jam 5:16 — Jam 5:18  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

2. You and your households.

Mat 18:18 — Mat 18:20  Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

When this is done, multitude in your world of influence shall be converted. It shall be so in Jesus name.

 Jud 1:22 — Jud 1:23  And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

In addition, the ploy of the devil to get believers globally to backslide shall be frustrated.

Jam 5:19 — Jam 5:20  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

Isaiah 44:25  That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;

Job 5:12  He disappointeth the devices of the crafty,so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.

Dearly beloved, if you engage yourself conscientiously doing these, your readiness for the dawning rapture shall be guaranteed.

Mal 3:16 — Mal 3:18  Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him  for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.  And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.  Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked,between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

 So arise. There is no time to waste again. Seek God and advance the cause of Christ for your earthly and eternal well-being.

Hosea 10:12  Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

Lam 2:19  Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watchespour out thine heart like water before the face of the Lord:lift up thy hands toward him for the life of thy young children,that faint for hunger in the top of every street.
