October 2020 Day 20 EXECUTED TWICE! DIED ONCE! – 2
BASIC SCRIPTURE: MATTHEW 27: 26-50
26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
36 And sitting down they watched him there;
37 And set up over his head his accusation written, This Is Jesus The King Of The Jews.
38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
Refer to the Mississippi man who could not be executed on the first attempt – yesterday’s devotional. Remember Isaiah 53:-4 again: “Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows! Note the two words “SURELY” and “HATH.” Not, “MAYBE” or “SHALL “That means IT ISADONE DEAL! ITIS FINISHED! IT IS CONCLUDED in the International spiritual court of justice! He has taken your tears, pain, and WHATEVER will bring you SORROW! Always declare to the devil: *”You are a liar! Jesus Christ, my MASTER took my sorrows! I CANNOT CARRY THE YOKE HE HAS CARRIED!
He took my barrenness yoke! I shall be fruitful in my womb, in my body and in the work of my hands! He took my sickness; He took my marital wars, so that I can have marital direction! He took my delays because He suffered delay on that cross! He took my financial embarrassment! He was poor so that poverty will not be my name! He was despised so that I can enjoy uncommon divine FAVOUR! He was rejected so l can be selected! He was made the TAIL (slapped and pushed around by common servants in Pilate’s courtyard), so I CAN BECOME THE HEAD! He was MOCKED so that I can be MADE into HONOUR! He was like a plant from a dry ground, so that my new names can be BLOSSOM and FLOURISH!

Whatever I lay my hands to do is not permitted to be dry anymore! He carried my grief and demotion! He carried my premature death (He never saw old age. He died before He was 34)! Yes! He carried my stagnation! He suffered betrayal/disappointment at the edge of His breakthrough- death on the cross (Judas betrayed Him! Peter disappointed Him). Isa1ah 52: 14b says: “… His visage (appearance) was so marred (disfigured and ugly) more than any man… “He could win the award for the “UGLIEST MAN ON EARTH.” That happened so that I can be glorified and beautified! SHAME cannot be my last bus-stop again because the Lord has been punished even before l was born! Oh! Thank you LORD! You shall end well, because of Isaiah 53: 11. It says the LORD shall see me for whom He suffered and BE SATISFIED! That means no matter how 2020 has been, I AM WORK-IN-PROGRESS and THE LORD has not finished with me! The LORD shall see me and be proud of me I can never be an abandoned project! Thank you LORD! Thank you LORD! Thank you LORD!
PRAYER POINTS: Take Song 1: Blessed assurance.. (Scroll down for hymn)
- In your own words, pray about today’s word as led
- Thank the Lord again for His death on the cross
- Thank Him for TAKING YOUR PLACE!
- Stand and declare that it is against the law of NATURAL, LEGAL or SPIRITUAL JUSTICE for a man or woman to be punished twice for one offence! Therefore I stand to declare that since my MASTER AND LORD has been PUNISHED FOR ME, I cannot be punished again. Therefore I decree and command that the following yokes of the devil caused by the fall of the first ADAM should loose me and go forever in Jesus name. I take my deliverance now!!! Mention your battles now and pray seriously until you have peace to stop). Pray about today NOW! Loose a new helper
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine;
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood. This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.
Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.
