WHEN CURSES ARE REVERSED (2)

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*


*"....WHEN CURSES ARE REVERSED..."(2)*


*Scripture Treasure.*

2 Kgs 2: 19-20 *And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren.*

*And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him.*


*Insight and Highlight.*

Jericho passed from curses to cure.

2 Kgs 2:21-22 *And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.*


*Scripture Commentaries.*

Jericho had been under a curse from the days of Joshua. Joshua had spoken two curses on Jericho but exempting Rahab the harlot.

First in Joshua 6:17: *And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.*

Second in Joshua 6:26 *And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.*

The curses continued till the days of Elisha.

A man called Hiel in the days of Ahab rebuilt the city and the gates at the cost of the lives of his two sons, 1 Kgs 16: 34.

The curse was permanently reversed by Elisha.

Jericho passed from curses to cure.

In Matt 20:29-34, Jesus passed through Jericho healing the two blind beggars. Bathimmea

Today, history records Jericho as the oldest city in the world and as a city with the oldest known protective wall.

The leaders of Jericho sought the Lord during the times of Elisha (2 Kgs 2:19) and God reversed the curses through Elisha and this explains the existence of Jericho today.

Have you sought the Lord over those long existing problems?


*Remorse corner*

When we humble ourselves and seek divine intervention, God answers and restores.


*Call to Word action.*

When curses exist one convenience is not enough to outweigh one or more inconveniences. The city of Jericho was pleasant but the water waa bad and ground barren.

2 Kgs 2: 19-20 *".....the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren.*


*The Christian clarion duty.*

The heart cry of the men of Jericho to Elisha ended many years of long curses on the land. Have you cried to God concerning that long standing problem?


*Prayer.*

Lord remove all curses in any place, land or environment l find myself, in Jesus name.


Good morning all and have a blessed day today.


God bless you.
