|Stones Of Fire: Courtesy Of Dr. Daniel K. Olukoya by aderaskeey(m): 9:24am On Apr 16, 2006|
Beloved, this message is God’s design to open your eyes to some fundamental truths in the Bible. If you had ever sought to know the weapons to use in defeating your physical and spiritual enemies completely, then the answers are here for you. If you had never used the effective weapon of stones of fire before, now is the time to do it. In this message, we shall examine the origin of the stones of fire, the qualifications a Christian must have to use them and finally identify those who deserve the stones of fire. In the beginning, there was no war or rebellion, everything was in perfect harmony. It was a wonderful world. It was at that time that God created the supernatural man, called Adam and put him in the Garden of Eden. Adam was to keep the place and live there too with its splendour. But something happened, and Adam lost his entire God’s given benefits.
In the beginning, no one opposed God and no contrary voice or opinion was uttered against Him. Something disastrous happened and the first sinner emerged. Let us trace the history from that first sinner. In Ezekiel 28:13-19
“Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more”.
This is the emergence of Lucifer as the first sinner and his sin was rebellion. The above verses established the fact that he had many priviledges. For example, the last sentence in verse 16 says: “O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire” The last sentence in verse 14 says, “Thou hast walked up and down in the midst od the stones of fire” Not all angels could do that. The stones of fire refer to the Holy ground upon which the throne of God was placed. Not all angels could walk upon these stones. This is the history of the first sinner and unfortunately, all his children are still like him up till today. Now that we have identified the first sinner, what then is the first sin? It is found in Isaiah Chapter 14:13 which says
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
This is one area where a lot of people have failed. They refuse to submit to the Lordship of the Lord Jesus Christ. The first thing the enemy does is to identify the weak points of Christians and use them to fight against them. As much as possible, they will struggle to know those areas in a Christian’s life that are still under their control and just one area under their control is enough to make Christian lose the warfare. This is the secret behind spiritual failure. Any uncommitted area is normally energized by pride. Let this be clear to you today that Satan hates God and hates all those who bring glory to God. He hates them with perfect hatred. If you are serving God, then know sincerely that the enemy hates you. In every battle we find ourselves, there are two opposing groups. While the fallen angels, satanic agants, ungodly elements are on one side of the battle, the living God, the holy angels and the redeemed are on the other side. When we are victorious, we have defeated Satan. In all Satan’s attempts to attack us, he is only trying to destroy the church of God whether we like it or not, human beings are the instruments that Satan uses to attack God. When we fail to be what God wants us to be, we are simply allowing Satan to throw a blow at God. During his earthly ministry, Jesus got angry and violently defended God on many occasions.
“And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine. Jesus Christ was quite angry and unhappy about the corrupt and fraudulent practice in the house of God. So, he went there and violently defended the glory of God. This is what we are also called to do. We are called to do battle for God always. However, if you do not know the battle that l am talking about, it means that for a long time, you’ve deserted the battlefield. Please understand very well that Christianity is not bread and butter. Any minister that tells you that Christianity is bread and butter is teaching you what is contrary to the word of God”
. 2Timothy2: 3-4 read thus
“Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier”.
We are expected to suffer hardship. We are expected to cut off ourselves from worldly affairs. We are to do what has been ordered by our commander-in –Chief who is the Lord Jesus Christ. And when you are in this kind of warfare, you have to plan your strategies well enough. Luke Chapter14 verses 31-32
“Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace”.
That is the principle. No king goes to war, unless he understands the terms of battle and the powers of the enemy. He has to understand the value of what is at stake, his strength and resources. Likewise, as Christians, we must evaluate our lives and see how well we are doing in the race and the welfare, such as the blood of Jesus and the name of Jesus. However, whatsoever weapon the bible has given us we need obedience to make them work. Obedience to the word of God is very important if we are to confront and subdue the kingdom of darkness effectively. Our victory is connected to obedience because we have an enemy who is very cunning and operates tactically. He has many tactics for catching people to ensure that they lose their battles continually. For example, the devil uses the weapon of temptation in order to make his attack successful. Many people would not have been where they are now, if they had resisted the temptation that came their way at one time or the other. The devil removes the sources of strength from people and then begins to attack them, if Samson had been careful, he would have known that trouble was around the corner when Delilah was relentlessly asking him the source of his uncommon power. If the Bible study is getting difficult for you to do, your prayer life is gradually collapsing and your zeal for witnessing for Christ has disappeared altogether, then know for sure, that the enemy is trying to remove the source of your strength, know that danger is coming. You must arise and start fighting. Samson was fighting until his enemy shaved his hair. The head of my Samson will not be shaven in Jesus name. Please pray this prayer point with all aggression “The head of my Samson will not be shaven in Jesus name” Again our enemies like to strike while we are alone. The devil caught Eve while she was walking alone in the garden. David took was walking alone on the roof of the house when the devil caught him, so don’t be a lone ranger Christian. This is why we encourage people to have prayer partners and to fellowship with fellow Christians. Again, never remain idle because an idle hand is a tool of the enemy. Whenever you are not in the company of God. Satan likes to withdraw Christians from one another and attack them individually. This has spelt the doom of many Christians who keep to themselves always. Christianity is not a religion where people mind his business; he would not have died for you and I. In addition, the devil makes people unteachable, they feel they know better than everybody. Many Christians were known to have canvassed for church posts. Many got their posts in the church because of their wealth. It is certain now that church post will land a lot of people in hell fire. Infact, many would have gotten to heaven without difficulty if they had not accepted useless church posts. Furthermore, the enemy injects fake confidence into people that makes them believe that they can never fall. So, they move very close to sin and feel free committing it. That is why the bible says “He that thinkest he standeth let him take heed, lest he falls” Apostle Paul also warned against self-confidence. That is why he said: “We have no confidence in the flesh” It is therefore the device of the enemy for people to have confidence in the flesh. Again, the devil removes people from God’s favour and gets them trapped by joining them to sin. Our enemies are desperate and persistent fighters. They do not go on holidays, neither do they sleep. You therefore have to be watchful always. Apart from that, the enemy sends confusion in top people’s heart. Jesus knowing this said, “Let not your heart be troubled, believe in God and believe also in me” The devil knows that, once he succeeds in getting your heart confused, you will lose the battle and he will then bring fear, doubt and discouragement into your heart. So, if you are like that you are reading this message, l wish to remind you that Jesus is still on the throne and there is no reason for you to continue to be fearful or tearful. Another thing that the devil does is to make use of human agents with concealed identities to achieve his purposes. Also, the devil has his doctrines that he propagates. This is the reason many strange things are now creeping into the house of God and the meaning of born again has been completely bastardized and corrupted. Many so-called born again people have the impression that they could remain as they were in the world, provided they add Jesus to all they do. Many so called born again Christians reject proper baptism, all in the name that they had been baptized as small kids. They have forgotten that a baby doesn’t know anything about salvation. Anybody who is to be baptized must understand what salvation is and must therefore take a concrete decision that he wants to forsake the life of sin. In many places too where the baptism of the Holy Ghost has been antagonized and bastardized, many evil things are happening. In such places you see pastors being addressed as “His excellency”, “His Holiness”, “Senior Apostle” etc. All these things are open bastardizing of the word of God. Let this point be made clear, that any minister who knows and accepts money from any sinner for whatever purpose is also a sinner. For this, it is wrong for the churches of God to organize bazaars and harvests and print envelopes for donations, which according to them will be thankfully received. Who is thankfully receiving the donations of sinners? Is it God or themselves? Your sitting down in an evil church is an invitation to spiritual firing squad. Many Christians now sit in churches where the things of the Bible have been corrupted the caps on the head of the so-called Bishops and spiritual leaders and the terrible long crosses on their necks are the corruption the Bible is talking about. No wonder the Bible says that at the end of the day, corruption will stand in the holy place of God. It confirms the abomination Daniel was talking about. Please notice this fact, that Satan has power over all the evil people on earth, because they are his children. He owns them and they do his will. He blinds, traps and deceives them. No matter how nice a person is as far as he is not born again, he is a child of the devil. He is possessed and he is doing the will of the devil. An Egyptian who bleached her skin and painted her lips would still remain an Egyptian.
Take Notice of this fact too, that the devil has some powers to afflict God’s people. He can tempt them like he tempted David. He can afflict them often like he afflicted Job. He can oppose them like he opposed Zachariah.He can decide to sift them life wheat like he wanted to do to Peter. He can fool them like Paul said in the bible that he sometimes appears like the angel of light to deceive people. But glory be to God because Christ has triumphed over the devil. Also, notice that the devil is an excellent administration. He is an expert at division of labour, since he cannot be everywhere at that same time. But thank God he has no match to the Holy Spirit. I john 5:19 tells us that “the whole world lieth in wickedness” It is then time for us Christians to begin to throw the stones of fire guess you will want to do it with all your strength. Praise the Lord! Do you know that God himself had thrown stones at people before now?
“And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Beth-horon, that the Lord cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword”.
God had to throw stones at people from heaven. Under what situation does God throw stones?
Please read Isaiah 30:30
“And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones”.
“Therefore thus saith the Lord God; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it”.
God throws stones when He is angry with the enemy. God’s stones are special stones; they go back to heaven after they had done their work here and stay there waiting for the next stubborn enemy. Do you want to successfully throw the stones of fire at your enemies? Then below are the conditions you need to fulfill to be able to do that.
1. You must give your life totally to the Lord Jesus Christ. Submit yourself to God as a living sacrifice.
2. Put on the whole armour of God.
3. Submit yourself completely to God so that you can resist the devil. Ephes. 4:27
“Neither give place to the devil” You must learn to do this always.
4. Learn how to pray about everything.
5. Beware of gifts from unbelievers. If you are still eating food prepared during not biblical celebrations then you need deliverance. eating such food is like attending the party of the devil and you have accepted the meal provided by him. The bible says, that all the meat that is sacrificed after the death of Christ, is meal from the table of the devil.
6. Never pay ungodly visit to the territory of the enemy. If you have commanded your enemies to receive stones of fire and you still go ahead to play in their territory, then you will partake in the stones of fire rain.
7. Learn to cast every burden on God, no matter what is happening. Take your burden to the Lord and leave them there, then your stone throwing can be very effective.
What are the things that require the stones of fire? They are quite many but the major ones will be listed for discussion.
3. Satanic agents
4. All the evil planners
5. All the evil altars
6. All the evil mouths
7. All the satanic instruments and weapons.
8. All the evil observers sent to observe God’s people.
9. All the eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood.
10. All the evil aid-de-camp that follow people around.
11. All the stubborn pursuers
12. All the masquerading problems
13. All evil marriage planners.
14. All the spirit husbands and Wives
15. Strange Children
16. Evil remote controllers
All these are qualified for the stones of fire. Let me assure you that when you begin to throw the stones of fire, something definite must happen to your enemy, the kind of thing that happened in the land of Egypt. It is now time for you to throw dangerous stones of fire at all your enemies. But for your stones to be effective you must be aggressive and do it with all your strength.
When you call out the name of a particular thing, cry out loud saying, “receive the stones of fire in the name of Jesus” twenty one times.
1. All activities and powers of witchcraft spirit presents in my life now (please lay your right hand on your head and left one on the chest) receive the stones of fire.
2. All the plans and activities of wizards and satanic agents, receive the stones of fire.
3. Evil planners and evil altars working against my life at this moment, receive the stones of fire.
4. Satanic instruments and weapons fashioned against my life, receive the stones of fire.
5. All the eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood receive the stones of fire.
6. All stubborn pursuers receive the stones of fire.
7. All problems manifesting as masquerades, receive the stones of fire.
8. I will arise and escape from the camp of the enemy in the name of Jesus.
9. Thank God for answered prayers.

Ain't u emphasizing more on the devices of the devil instead of the power inherent in u as a new creature, recreated in Christ?
|Re: Stones Of Fire: Courtesy Of Dr. Daniel K. Olukoya by aderaskeey(m): 6:46pm On Apr 17, 2006|
Thank you blueiyke,
There is an epidemic of powerlessness in Christendom today because of self-deception and ignorance of this truth, which you despise. It is pricisely these devices (2 Cor. 2:11) of the devil, scorned by multitudes who are re-created in Christ, that Christendom is crawling today in the mire of poverty and unspeakable ignominy.
Until we expose these devices and deal with them, our people (God's people: Hosea 4:6, remain in chains and perish)
