Destroying the future?

At that time Menahem destroyed the town of Tappuah and all the surrounding countryside as far as Tirzah, because its citizens refused to surrender the town. He killed the entire population and ripped open the pregnant women (2 Kings 15:16).
 
Menahem means ‘comforter’ or the ‘consoler’. His father’s name is Gadi, meaning ‘my happiness’. The comforter/consoler, son of happiness operating as a destroyer and creating loss, weeping and mourning!
 
The prime duty of the devil is to kill, steal and destroy; creating woes, weeping and loss. Menahem destroyed Tappuah, also known as Tiphsah. Tiphsah means ford, passage, leap or step.
 
Children represent a leap, passage or step into the future. Destroying children is destroying the future.
 
May the destroyer not come near you or your dwelling place in Jesus name (Psalm 91).
 
What ‘rips up’ unborn children from the mother’s womb, as lifeless? – abortion.
 
The pregnancy may be an idea God has planted within you, but the zeal to accomplish it is gone, ripped up. It may be an educational goal, a career objective or a ministerial plan. May God restore anything and everything the devil has stolen from you, in Jesus mighty name.
 
Menahem ripped up wombs, killing both mother and the unborn child. If a man die shall he live again? Job asked. Only God can bring to life the things that are dead. Jesus declared 'I am the resurrection and the life, if a man believes in me, though he was dead, he will live again'. Jesus said ‘Your brother shall rise again’. Whatever represents ‘your brother’ - something dear to you, which was dead, shall live again; in Jesus mighty name!
 
How do you establish the future?
 
  • You need to guide the children entrusted to your care. These include people in your sphere of influence, who may not presently have Jesus as Lord and savior, but may potentially accept Jesus. Listen to God's testimonial about Abraham: For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring on Abraham that which he has spoken of him (Genesis 18:19).
  • Praying for children, unborn grandchildren and the community -  Genesis 18:19
  • Establishing your glorious future through prayers. Thus says the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands, you command me - Isaiah 45:11
  • As you ask God to establish a glorious future concerning you, your family and your future generations, God is faithful to complete it. Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand - Proverbs 19:21.
  • Taking steps to establish righteousness, holiness and the counsel of God through prayers and instruction. "Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people's hearts, and they will learn the truth."- 2 Timothy 2:25
 
Remember that 'Actions are performed in the present. Excellence depends on the
preparation done in the past, taking cognizance of the future you desire to create'.
 
Peter Drucker states that "The best way to predict the future is to create it." This you could achieve by pondering on the points above and taking steps towards achieving them.

 
May God use you to establish a glorious future for yourself, your family and community; in Jesus mighty name! May commitment in the place of prayers and instruction enable a glorious future for you and all yours in Jesus name! Amen and Amen and Amen!
 
Peace!
