Praise, Worship and Proclamation.
Singing is a compelling element that connects the human spirit to the divine. The nature of the song determines the identity of the spirit that comes to us. Never underestimate the songs that come to mind or those you hum, for they herald the activation of a spiritual entity. Let’s explore the main categories of songs that exist, as believe me, singing is the instrument that aids self-evacuation to create space within.
When the spirit of God was upon Saul, David would take the harp and play it with his hand; then Saul would be relieved and feel better, and the evil spirit would depart from him. (1 Samuel 16:23)
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord. (Ephesians 5:18-19)
Additionally, there is the style of worship songs that lead to contemplation and meditation on the ideas they evoke. They relate to the existence and purpose of God.
Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel. (Psalms 22:4)
Conversely, exaltation songs serve to provide assurance and conviction. They also instill determination by evoking past successes achieved by the God being celebrated.
Now bring me a musician. As the musician played, the Lord’s hand came upon Elisha. (2 Kings 3:15)
The audible declaration of Bible verses related to our hopes is an activator of creative power.
I have made you the father of many nations. He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not. (Romans 4:17)
It is written: ‘I believed; therefore I have spoken.’ Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak. (2 Corinthians 4:13)
Put me in remembrance; let us argue together; set forth your case, that you may be proved right. (Isaiah 43:26)
The earth we inhabit is abundantly endowed with resources for human enjoyment. This includes mineral resources extracted from the earth, as stated in the Bible:
The name of the first is Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there. (Genesis 2:11-12)
The Bible also highlights the presence of animal and plant resources, such as:
Then God said, ‘Let the earth sprout with vegetation, every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees they came from.’ And that is what happened. The earth produced vegetation—all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Their seeds produced plants and trees of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:11-12)
Then God said, ‘Let the earth produce every sort of animal, each producing offspring of the same kind—livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and wild animals.’ And that is what happened. God made all sorts of wild animals, livestock, and small animals, each able to produce offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:24-25)
The Lord God made all sorts of trees grow up from the ground—trees that were beautiful and that produced delicious fruit. In the middle of the garden, he placed the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. (Genesis 2:9)
God has ordained that humans play a significant role in governing the resources of the land and subsurface, for we are equipped to exert dominion.
The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person. (Genesis 2:7)
However, humans have an intrinsic connection to the land since they originated from it. Therefore, believers should learn to address the land for their needs rather than solely praying to God.
While pagans, traditionalists, and others make libations, sacrifices, and imprecations to the earth to obtain what they desire, we “so-called Christians” often find ourselves in suffering, questioning whether God sees our hardships.
Dear believers, proclamations and declarations are crucial for a Christian’s well-being. When the land is unfavorable to someone, they suffer and become miserable. But when the land is favorable, it accumulates wealth in their hands.
King Solomon was greater in riches and wisdom than all the other kings of the earth. (1 Kings 10:23)
I invite you to rise in the midst of difficulties and adversity to sow words to the land for your social salvation.
Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. The Lord blessed him, and the man became rich, and gained more and more until he became very wealthy. He had possessions of flocks and herds and many servants, so that the Philistines envied him. (Genesis 26:12-14)
I am convinced that the lack of knowledge regarding the mysteries associated with the land is currently hindering the lives of many. Few believers are aware that the earth listens to our words, that it eats and drinks. Deuteronomy states:
Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak, and let the earth hear the words of my mouth. May my teaching drop as the rain, my speech distill as the dew, like gentle rain upon the tender grass, and like showers upon the herb. For I will proclaim the name of the Lord; ascribe greatness to our God ! (Deuteronomy 32:1-3)
We declare that the land of Gabon records all the words we speak today! We nullify all words that the land of Gabon has received to oppose you and this church!
The earth has a system for recording information from humans. It has the ability to record all words spoken by people and actions taken. Jeremiah reveals:
Hear, O earth; behold, I am bringing disaster upon this people, the fruit of their devices because they have not paid attention to my words; and as for my law, they have rejected it. (Jeremiah 6:19)
Read what follows:
Hear, O earth; behold, I am bringing disaster upon this people, the fruit of their devices, because they have not paid attention to my words; and as for my law, they have rejected it. (Jeremiah 22:29-30)
God ordered Jeremiah to curse King Jeconiah. The prophet did not need to meet the king; he addressed the land instead.
This is how diviners, magicians, marabouts, gangas, and sorcerers act against us. They merely need soil from your origins and words for their malevolent deeds to follow you.
However, it is important to recognize that the reverse of evil is good. We can also bring about positive change. We, too, can reprogram the land and have it record good words. To do this, you must allow the land to drink through the imprecations you make. An imprecation involves wishing misfortune upon someone. It is part of people’s daily lives. Consider what is written about Abel:
Now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you work the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength. You shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth. (Genesis 4:11-12)
Once the land has drunk, it will fulfill the proclamations made upon it. The land has been given the mandate to ensure that Cain remains a wanderer, and that’s what he becomes. There are various types of imprecations, such as…
