THE SUN WILL BE BLOCKED AND IT WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT UPON THE EARTH:

That is what was revealed to me by The LORD, in a Vision (Supernatural Dream) of the LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit, in the morning of 19th January 2018.

The LORD demonstrated to me in the Vision, as He showed me that there are very many ways that the Sun can be blocked, hence not giving out its Light. He gave me an example of how the Moon can Block the Sun; to either give little Light or No Light at all.

The LORD then made me know that there is an Object that will soon Block the Sun; hence the Sun will not give its Light unto (upon) the earth. Therefore, The Light of the Sun will not Reach the earth; hence Darkness upon the earth.

The Vision of The LORD then ended.

Whether the Object will be Moon or another Object (s) was not made known to me.

SHALOM!!!

Joel 2: 30-32 ‘“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of The LORD. And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of The LORD Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As The LORD has said, Among the remnant whom The LORD calls.”’

Revelation 6: 12 ‘“I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.”’

Luke 21: 25-28 ‘“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”’

PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YESHUA/YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!

REPENTANCE PRAYER:

Precious Jesus,

I acknowledge today that you are LORD and Savior of all mankind,

and today I have recognized my shortfall,

I Repent and turn away from all Sin.

Please cover me with your Precious Blood,

and establish your Word in my life,

that I may be found in Righteousness and Holiness

and write my name in your Book of Life

and Baptize me with the Power of The Holy Spirit

in The Mighty Name of Jesus Christ.

AMEN.

THE LEFT BEHIND:

The Earth will Wobble and Spin unusually; under the weight of Sins upon her. The earth will thus Reel to and fro like a Drunkard. On the earth, the effect of this Wobble and Reeling will be felt in the form of Mega Historic Earthquakes, Mega Historic Volcanic Eruptions; as the earth’s Crust and Fault-lines snap out of Position. The Ocean waters will also Roar with historic Big Giant waves.

The Earth will be bombarded with historic Meteor Showers, Meteor Strikes, Asteroid strikes.

The Earth’s Tilt will change and thereby causing Seasonal Variations and Seasonal Shifts. Thus leading to Historic Droughts, Historic Floods, Historic Famines, Historic Snowing & Cold Temperatures, Historic Hot (High) Temperatures ETC.

The Earth will experience Polar Shifts, the North Pole Will change its Position. The South Pole will also change its Position. This will lead to Electromagnetic imbalance on the earth, thus triggering Telecommunication errors and disorientation.

There will thus be Chaos, Civil Strife and Civil unrest due to All the above Distresses and Turmoil that will plunge the earth.

As a Result of Food Shortage due to Drought, Famine and Flooding, there will effectively be an Economic Crisis and Financial Crisis Worldwide. People will thus Fight for Food. Theft will increase, as gangs and Lone attackers invade Food Stores, Farms and Homes--------looking for Food and Water.

There will thus be a Call for a New Order due to Chaos. There will thus be a “Need” and a “Cry” for a Saviour of The World. But as a Result of Delusion, People will Look for a Saviour amongst themselves (a False Saviour/a False Messiah), and therein will arise The Anti-Christ/The Man of Lawlessness (The Beast from the Sea), who will Lead The One World Government; geared towards providing a New Order out of Chaos: The New World Order.

People will also look for a Religious Figure to interpret for them the Chaotic situation and to indeed provide a Religious Solution, Solace and Inspiration to their impediment; and therein will arise The False Prophet (The Beast from the Earth). He will be the Leader of a Conglomeration of World Religions, in what will be a One World Religion----Consisting of Catholicism, “Christianity”, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Scientology E.T.C. This False Prophet (The Second Beast) will direct people to listen to the First Beast (The Anti-Christ/The Man of Lawlessness/The Son of Perdition), to follow him and to obey his directives and guidance; in essence to worship him and his image, and to take his Mark (The Mark of The Beast).

One of the key Agendas that will be put through and implemented as a way of bringing Order out of the Worldwide Chaos and Turmoil, will be the issuance of an Identification Mark. This will be a Pseudo Electronic-Biometric Identity that everybody will be required to take, as a Mark. And it will be inserted into people’s body (Forehead and Right Hand---the hand that most people will use to swipe through into the system). This will be The Mark of The Beast System: The Mark of The Beast (The Mark of Satan).

The Mark introduced and implemented by the Beast System led by The Anti-Christ (The First Beast) and The False Prophet (The Second Beast). This system will be put in place so as to Monitor and Control People. Anybody who will refuse to take The Mark of The Beast will be considered to be “The Bad Guys who are looting, stealing and causing Chaos and disorder and who must thus be gotten rid of" (“for the New World Order to take root”), so they will be Killed; by instantaneous hanging (at the Neck: for their heads will be Cut off at the neck).

Anybody who will want to Participate in the Commerce (The Trade/the Economic activities), Health/Medical system, Aviation sector, Rail system, Road Network, Military service, Religious activities & events, Recreational activities, Pension system, Human Capital services, Land Registration, Immigration services ETC. will have to take The Mark of The Beast.

All The Above will be the Scenario that will Face The Left-Behind, after Christ Jesus shall have come as a Thief, and Snatched away His Faithful Servants, Sons and Daughters into Heaven. The above Scenario (that will face the Left- Behind) will be The Great Tribulation Period. All those who shall have been Lukewarm Christians will effectively have been Left-Behind, and their Lukewarmness towards The Messiah Jesus Christ shall have indeed been Shamefully Exposed. Joining The Lukewarm Christians (The Foolish Virgins) in The Left-Behind List will be atheists, and all who Practice False Religion (Hinduism, Islam, Scientology, Buddhism, New Age Movement ETC.)

But at that Time (The Great Tribulation Period), The LORD God Almighty (YAHWEH, JEHOVAH ELOHIM, The Great I AM) will still have an Agenda for His First Born Son: Israel (The Jewish People). This is because, as much as The Messiah Jesus Christ shall have come to Pick His Faithful Sons and Daughters, His (The LORD’s) Firstborn Son (Israel) shall have not been Ready for Him (The Messiah Jesus Christ: The True Saviour of Mankind/The World). For they (The Jews/Israel) had Rejected Him, and killed Him (and then He Resurrected and Rose to Heaven) when He came to them.

So Israel (The Jews) will experience (undergo) Jacob’s Trouble during the same Time as The World will be experiencing The Great Tribulation Period. The LORD God Almighty will send His Servants (The Two Witnesses and The 144,000 servants of God) to Witness/Minister to the Jews (The Israelites). Israel will be in so much Trouble, that eventually they will finally declare, that: ‘“Blessed is He who comes in the Name of The LORD!”’, in Reference to The One True Messiah that they had earlier Rejected: The LORD Jesus Christ The Messiah (Yeshua/Yahushua Ha Mashiach, in Hebrew Language).

During that Time of The Great Tribulation period (Jacob’s Trouble) anyone who will want to go to Heaven (whether Jew/Israelite or otherwise) will have to ensure that they do not Take The Mark of The Beast (RFID Micro-Chip); even if their Neck is Cut off for Refusing to take The Mark of The Beast. And they will also have to Accept The One True Saviour (Jesus Christ The Messiah), as their Saviour, as they Repent for The Forgiveness of Their Sins through His Blood; that He shed at The Cross of Calvary for the Remission of Sins of Mankind (including theirs).

SHALOM!!!

These Things are Due to Happen, anytime from Now. Therefore, Prepare The Way for The Coming of The Messiah Jesus Christ. Prepare The Way by embracing Repentance for the Forgiveness of your Sins through The Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ, and thereby walk & live in Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender & Submission before The LORD.

SHALOM!!!

Revelation 16:15 ‘“Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”’

(‘“Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.”’)

Revelation 3: 14-16 ‘“………….These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.”’

Isaiah 26: 19-21 ‘“Your dead shall live; Together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; For your dew is like the dew of herbs, And the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation (Wrath) is past. For behold, The LORD comes out of His place To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity (Sins); The earth will also disclose her blood, And will no more cover her slain.”’

Luke 21: 34-36 ‘“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”’

Exodus 4: 21-23 ‘“And the LORD said to Moses, “When you go back to Egypt, see that you do all those wonders before Pharaoh which I have put in your hand. But I will harden his heart, so that he will not let the people go. Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says The LORD: “Israel is My son, My firstborn. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me. But if you refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill your son, your firstborn.”’

Mathew 23: 37-39 ‘“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left to you desolate; for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the Name of The LORD!”’

Revelation 13:1 ‘“Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.”’

Revelation 13: 4-8 ‘“So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”’

Revelation 13: 11-12 ‘“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”’

Revelation 13: 16-18 ‘“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a Mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the Mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”’

Isaiah 24: 19-22 ‘“The earth is violently broken, The earth is split open, The earth is shaken exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, And shall totter like a hut; Its transgression shall be heavy upon it, And it will fall, and not rise again. It shall come to pass in that day That The LORD will punish on high the host of exalted ones, And on the earth the kings of the earth. They will be gathered together, As prisoners are gathered in the pit, And will be shut up in the prison; After many days they will be punished.”’

Isaiah 24: 1-6 ‘“Behold, The LORD makes the earth empty and makes it waste, Distorts its surface And scatters abroad its inhabitants. And it shall be: As with the people, so with the priest; As with the servant, so with his master; As with the maid, so with her mistress; As with the buyer, so with the seller; As with the lender, so with the borrower; As with the creditor, so with the debtor. The land shall be entirely emptied and utterly plundered, For The LORD has spoken this word. The earth mourns and fades away, The world languishes and fades away; The haughty people of the earth languish. The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, Because they have transgressed the laws, Changed the ordinance, Broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, And those who dwell in it are desolate. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, And few men are left.”’

PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YESHUA/YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!

PROPHECY OF ISRAEL GRIPPED IN FEAR AS NATIONS CONSPIRE AGAINST HER AND SURROUNDS HER. ALSO PROPHECY OF A TERROR ATTACK COMING TO KENYA:

In the morning of 10th January 2018, in a Vision (Supernatural Dream) of The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit, I found myself amongst a group of People that The LORD made me understand to be Israelis. I then saw Fear grip them (The Nation and The People of Israel), and The LORD made me know that Nations were conspiring (had Conspired) against Israel and thus then Surrounded her (them); hence the Fear that gripped the People and the Nation of Israel.

The Vision of The LORD then ended.

So, I see Fear grip Israel (Israelis), as Nations conspire against her, and Surround her.

There is thus an upcoming Distressing moment, when Fear will grip the people of Israel. This will be as a result of Nations Conspiring against her (them) and eventually Surrounding her (them).

Pray for Israel. Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.

In a second different Vision (Supernatural Dream) of The LORD, I found myself in a Place whereby The LORD instructed me to Prophecy on an event coming to the nation of Kenya.

So these are the words that The LORD inspired me to Proclaim in the Vision of The LORD: ‘“There is a Terrorist Attack Coming to Kenya; this is because The Leadership have decided to Casually take The Matters of The LORD.”’

The second Vision of The LORD then ended.

SHALOM!!!

Psalm 83: 1-18 ‘“Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Deal with them as with Midian, As with Sisera, As with Jabin at the Brook Kishon, Who perished at En Dor, Who became as refuse on the earth. Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb, Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, Who said, “Let us take for ourselves The pastures of God for a possession.” O my God, make them like the whirling dust, Like the chaff before the wind! As the fire burns the woods, And as the flame sets the mountains on fire, So pursue them with Your tempest, And frighten them with Your storm. Fill their faces with shame, That they may seek Your name, O LORD. Let them be confounded and dismayed forever; Yes, let them be put to shame and perish, That they may know that You, whose name alone is The LORD, Are the Most High over all the earth.”’

Zechariah 2: 8-9 ‘“For thus says The LORD of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. For surely I will shake My hand against them, and they shall become spoil for their servants. Then you will know that The LORD of hosts has sent Me.”’

Luke 21: 20-22 “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”’

Jeremiah 10:11 ‘“Therefore do not fear, O My servant Jacob,’ says The LORD, ‘Nor be dismayed, O Israel; For behold, I will save you from afar, And your seed from the land of their captivity. Jacob shall return, have rest and be quiet, And no one shall make him afraid. For I am with you,’ says The LORD, ‘to save you; Though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you, Yet I will not make a complete end of you. But I will correct you in justice, And will not let you go altogether unpunished.”’

Daniel 12:1 ‘“At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.”’

PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YESHUA/YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!

THERE IS POWER IN FASTING:

Fasting Shapes you and Re-Shapes you Physically, Psychologically, Emotionally and above All: Spiritually. The Fasting in The Name of The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit.

Fasting should be part and parcel of The Lifestyle of a Born-Again Christian. I know of someone, whom The LORD has put in his heart, at the beginning of the Year 2018 (“New Year Resolution”) to Fast for about 144 days in 2018 (3 consecutive Times/Days a Week, which will be about 12 Times a Month: about 12 Days * 12 Months===about 144 Days of the 365 Days of the Year).

He will be undertaking what he calls King David Fasting-------The Fasting whereby one breaks the Fast after the normal Sunset (6 pm), for each of the 3 consecutive Days. Total Dry Fasting (No Water, No Food, Nothing) while he is Fasting. 2nd Samuel 3:35 ‘“And when all the people came to persuade David to eat food while it was still day, David took an oath, saying, “God do so to me, and more also, if I taste bread or anything else till the sun goes down!”’

This Person, I know of has not taken an oath per se, but is Trusting The LORD to help him, to undertake the Fast, not by strength nor might, but by The Holy Spirit.

So I want to talk yet again about Fasting, in the Oracle Below:

THE REASONS AND THE BENEFITS OF FASTING AS YOU WALK WITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY:

This moment in time, The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit is going to help us understand the Reasons and the Benefits of fasting and we will eventually also talk about the different types/forms of Fasting. Fasting as we will find out shortly, should be an integral part of the walk with The LORD.

You have to note that it is Prayer and Fasting; they go hand in hand. It is important to note that fasting refers to self-denial of food (or some type of food) so as to dedicate oneself to prayer and submission to The LORD and before The LORD.

It is also very important to note that Fasting is not Starvation; because during Fasting one feeds on Spiritual food (Heavenly Food-----and The anointing of The Holy Spirit), by One Humbling Oneself before The LORD, which is Generally not the case during Starvation.

1-The First Benefit/Reason of Fasting is to acquire The anointing (The Presence) of The Holy Spirit, to a higher level, so that one operates in a higher level of The anointing of The LORD.

This is because during fasting, the flesh is “killed” (emptied) and the “spirit person” (inside) is uplifted, because the Holy Spirit empowers the “spirit person” during fasting; to a higher level of anointing and power.

Galatians 5: 16-26 ‘“So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.”’

2nd Corinthians 5:6-8 “Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from The LORD. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with The LORD.”

2-The Second Benefit/Reason of Fasting is to Receive Deliverance from bondages and chains of the evil forces.

There are some diseases and demon-possession that does not go out except by prayer and fasting.

Mathew 17:21 “But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting”

3-The Third Benefit/Reason of Fasting is to find Favour before the LORD.

So fasting is very necessary as one humbles himself/herself before The LORD, so as to find Favour in the sight of the LORD; so that The LORD intervenes in a particular situation.

Remember, The LORD will still do according to His Perfect Plan, Perfect Will and Perfect Timing as much as He will take note of our Petition before Him. We thus should Pray that His will be done, even as we present our petition before Him in Fasting and Prayer.

Esther 4:15-17 ‘“Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: “Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.” So Mordecai went away and carried out all of Esther’s instructions.”’

2nd Samuel 12: 15-23 ‘“…………And The LORD struck the child that Uriah’s wife bore to David, and it became ill. David therefore pleaded with God for the child, and David fasted and went in and lay all night on the ground. So the elders of his house arose and went to him, to raise him up from the ground. But he would not, nor did he eat food with them. Then on the seventh day it came to pass that the child died. And the servants of David were afraid to tell him that the child was dead. For they said, “Indeed, while the child was alive, we spoke to him, and he would not heed our voice. How can we tell him that the child is dead? He may do some harm!” When David saw that his servants were whispering, David perceived that the child was dead. Therefore David said to his servants, “Is the child dead?” And they said, “He is dead.” So David arose from the ground, washed and anointed himself, and changed his clothes; and he went into the house of The LORD and worshiped. Then he went to his own house; and when he requested, they set food before him, and he ate. Then his servants said to him, “What is this that you have done? You fasted and wept for the child while he was alive, but when the child died, you arose and ate food.” And he said, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, ‘Who can tell whether The LORD will be gracious to me, that the child may live?’ But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”’

4-The Fourth Benefit/Reason of Fasting is that fasting Averts (Prevents) the judgment (wrath) of the LORD.

This is so, when a person (a people) humbles himself/herself (themselves) before The LORD and Repent (for The Forgiveness) of their sins.

Jonah 3:1-10 ‘“Then the word of The LORD came to Jonah a second time: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.” Jonah obeyed the word of The LORD and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth. When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh: “By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.” When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened.”’

5-The Fifth Benefit/Reason of fasting is that Fasting leads to Cleansing of our body, soul, mind, heart and spirit.

Leviticus 16:29-34 ‘“This is to be a lasting ordinance for you: On the tenth day of the seventh month you must deny yourselves and not do any work—whether native-born or a foreigner residing among you— because on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you. Then, before The LORD, you will be clean from all your sins. It is a day of sabbath rest, and you must deny yourselves; it is a lasting ordinance. The priest who is anointed and ordained to succeed his father as high priest is to make atonement. He is to put on the sacred linen garments and make atonement for the Most Holy Place, for the tent of meeting and the altar, and for the priests and all the members of the community. “This is to be a lasting ordinance for you: Atonement is to be made once a year for all the sins of the Israelites.” And it was done, as The LORD commanded Moses.”’

NOTE: This atonement for sins has now been fully paid by The LORD Jesus Christ, by The LORD paying the ultimate sacrifice for sins at the cross of Calvary by shedding His blood for the salvation of those who believe in Him.

6-The Sixth Benefit/Reason of Fasting is to Gain Understanding.

This means to acquire a deeper meaning of mysteries, knowledge and revelation.

Daniel 10:12-14 ‘“Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.”’

Daniel 10:1-3 ‘“In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a revelation was given to Daniel (who was called Belteshazzar). Its message was true and it concerned a great war. The understanding of the message came to him in a vision. At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.”’

7-The Seventh Benefit/Reason of Fasting is to Present a Petition Before The LORD In Humility So That There Be a Break-Through.

Ezra 8:21-23 ‘“There, by the Ahava Canal, I proclaimed a fast, so that we might humble ourselves before our God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions. I was ashamed to ask the king for soldiers and horsemen to protect us from enemies on the road, because we had told the king, “The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him, but his great anger is against all who forsake him.” So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer.”’

8-The Eighth Benefit/Reason of Fasting is to Humble Oneself Before The LORD During Trouble, Disgrace and Distress.

Nehemiah 1:1-4 ‘“The words of Nehemiah son of Hakaliah: In the month of Kislev in the twentieth year, while I was in the citadel of Susa, Hanani, one of my brothers, came from Judah with some other men, and I questioned them about the Jewish remnant that had survived the exile, and also about Jerusalem. They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.” When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.”’

9-The Ninth Benefit/Reason of Fasting is to Repent Before The LORD and Return to The LORD, by Rendering Ones Heart to The LORD.

Joel 2:12-17 ‘“Even now,” declares The LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to The LORD your God, for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. Who knows? He may turn and relent and leave behind a blessing—grain offerings and drink offerings for The LORD your God. Blow the trumpet in Zion, declare a holy fast, call a sacred assembly. Gather the people, consecrate the assembly; bring together the elders, gather the children, those nursing at the breast. Let the bridegroom leave his room and the bride her chamber. Let the priests, who minister before The LORD, weep between the portico and the altar. Let them say, “Spare your people, LORD. Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’”

10-The Tenth Benefit/Reason of Fasting is to Enquire of The LORD and to Seek Him.

2nd Chronicles 20:1-4 ‘“After this, the Moabites and Ammonites with some of the Meunites came to wage war against Jehoshaphat. Some people came and told Jehoshaphat, “A vast army is coming against you from Edom, from the other side of the Dead Sea. It is already in Hazezon Tamar” (that is, En Gedi). Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the Lord, and he proclaimed a fast for all Judah. The people of Judah came together to seek help from the Lord; indeed, they came from every town in Judah to seek him.”’

THE MAIN TYPES OF FASTING:

1-Dry Fasting: This is the fasting whereby one does not take any food or drink i.e. no solid food or liquid food taken during the period of fasting. It is the type of fasting that Esther and the Jewish community living in exile, during Esther’s time took when Haman schemed to finish (kill) them all.

It is known as Esther Fasting (Esther and the Jewish community took 3 days of The Fasting; The Dry Fasting).

There is also King David Fasting; which is also a form of Dry Fasting, but it is where one Breaks the Fast after the sun set (normally 6 pm), for each of the Days of The Fast.

2-Water-Only Fasting: This is the fasting whereby only water is taken during the period of fasting.

3-Juice-Only Fasting: This is fasting whereby only juice is taken during fasting.

4-Daniel Fasting: This is the fasting whereby only vegetables, fruits, Cereals, legumes and water are taken. No Animal product be it meat or milk is taken. No sugar or coffee or tea is taken.

It is the Fasting that Daniel and his Friends took for 10 days, while in the King’s Service.

Daniel 1:5 ‘“And the king appointed for them a daily provision of the king’s delicacies and of the wine which he drank, and three years of training for them, so that at the end of that time they might serve before the king.”’

Daniel 1: 11-12 ‘“So Daniel said to the steward whom the chief of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, “Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink.”’

NOTE:

(a)-Fasting can take the form of half a day; one day; two days; three days; five days etc as led by The LORD for any of the above Types of fasting.

(b)-Remember that Fasting is very important for your Spiritual growth and development, as you walk with The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit on the Narrow Road; The road of Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender & Submission to The LORD Jesus Christ. So I urge you to partake of it.

SHALOM!!! SHALOM!!! SHALOM!!!

PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YESHUA/YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!

REPENTANCE PRAYER:
