You will remember that the word ‘I’ belongs to God. In Exodus 3 Moses asked him what is the name of him that he met. He told Moses to tell the people his name is I AM. I AM THAT I AM. The only person that can promise and will not fail is God. So when he said “I will make you great”, it is settled.
If God says “I will make you great” the person you are, the family you come from, your level of education does not matter. From our recent messages, we dwelt so much on the fact that satan also makes his people wealthy. But the blessing he gives his people is the blessing that gives sorrow. When that person satan blesses dies, the wealth ends. But the blessing of God is a generational blessing. When God blessed Abraham that blessing extended to the generations that follow.
“And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.”
The Lord God that we are serving is the God of greatness. He alone is an expert in making his children great.
In this Bible passage, it is revealed to us that God created greater light to rule the day and lesser light to rule the night. The greater light is the sun and the lesser light is the moon. This tells us that the sun rules the day and the night. The power that rules the day is greater than the power that rules the night.
Matthew 5:14 says, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”
The power that rules the day is the Sun. it gives light to the day. The power that rules the night is the moon and gives light to the night.
Who is that light in Matthew 5:14?
Jesus said you are the light. You are created to rule the day and the night because you are the light of the world.
Our Lord Jesus Christ has the power to rule the day and the night. Because Jesus is the light in us, we also have the power to rule in the days and night. You cannot be hidden.
There is something that makes people to be hidden:
But from this day the power of the light shall come upon your life. When God promotes you into greatness, your life cannot be hidden. Therefore, wicked powers do not have power over us because you have the light inside you. Everything concerning creation confirms that you have the power to rule over powers of darkness.
Genesis 1:26-28 says, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
God created man and gave him the power to have dominion over every creeping thing. When God wanted to curse satan He said on your belly shall you walk. He turned satan who was an angel to become a creeping thing and gave man the power to have dominion over all creeping things. Jesus said, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
Where then is the position of the serpent?
They are under your foot. They have been sentenced to be under your foot. The only person that satan can overcome is the person that sin has overcome. God did not say Satan will not attack us. But He said when satan attacks us, he will fail. Whenever he attacks it will backfire.
You are created with the power of dominion.
The authority to have dominion is revealed in the power that created us.
- Always remember and live with the revelation that you are created in the image of God with the power to have dominion over everything that God has created.
- Jesus told us in another way to resist the devil and he will flee. So let that anointing of dominion inside you begins to function in the Name of Jesus.
- It is God that ordained man and woman to have authority over all creatures.
Therefore both men and women were created with the seed of greatness. It is sad many people could not manifest greatness in life. It is possible for a man to have the seed of greatness in him but die without becoming great. This is because;
1. The seed of greatness created in man can be stolen.
Matthew 13:19 says, “When anyone heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the wayside.”
Anyone that hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand, it is stolen from him.
Our Lord Jesus was explaining the parable he said in Matthew 13:3-9 “And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the wayside, and the fowls came and devoured them up: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprung up and choked them: But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
Therefore the seed of greatness deposited in man can be stolen. When you are engaging in the sin of fornication, adultery, and idolatry the seed of greatness in you can be stolen.
Satan cannot create anything. He can come and steal the seed of greatness in a person and give to his children. That is why being born again is very important.
2. The seed of greatness in man can be killed.
Once killed the person cannot live a great life. What waters the seed of greatness in us is the word of God. So when you don’t read the word, meditate on it and do according to the word, the seed of greatness will die.
When your life is not rooted in God, no matter how you rise it will be chocked. That is why some people rise for some time and then they begin to fall.
3. The seed of greatness in one can be removed completely.
When the seed of greatness in Samson was removed, the Bible says he became an ordinary man.
When one is living in sin, the seed of greatness can be removed. You cannot deny the fact that Samson was a great man. But at a point, he fell. It is because he was not rooted in God. Sin can make one great for some time but will bring you to shame and poverty. It is better not to taste a life of greatness at all than to taste it and become poor.
There are powers that can promote man
- Sin; which at the end will bring that man to shame.
- The righteousness of God. If you are faithful in a small thing, he will make you the head of the greatest.
- Power of disobedience. God that created you in his own image will not leave you to be ashamed. Nobody living in the obedience of God will die poor.
If it is work that brings greatness those that do hard work (like the truck pushers) will prosper. It is God who makes one prosper. When your work becomes labor, it is bondage. It is when God blesses your work that you begin to prosper.
WHAT MAKES A MAN TO DIE WITHOUT BECOMING GREAT?
1. The seed of greatness that God planted in man may not develop when it is not developed.
The seed that is not developed will die. It is an investment that brings multiplication. It is what you sow that will bear fruit.
Jesus said in John 15:1-2 that “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.”
If you are in Christ Jesus but your life is not bearing fruit that people can see and your life, work, and talent are not blessing the kingdom of God, he will cut you off. When the branch is cut off, it will die.
In the house of God, your life and talent must be blessing God. You say you are beautiful, but what are you doing with your beauty? Do you use it to ruin the destiny of men or you are using it to bless God?
You say you are handsome. That is good. Do you use your handsomeness to follow the young girls and lure them to destruction or you are using it to bless God?
You say you have a position. Do you use your position to sleep with anyone that wants help or you use it to help the destiny of others?
- God bless you with business but you are selling fake products.
- In the house of God, you chose not to do anything.
- Your life must bear fruit. The tree that bears no fruit is a curse.
- Jesus said the tree that bears fruit he himself will purge it for it to give more fruit.
DO YOU WANT GOD TO MKE YOU GREAT?
- Develop the seed of greatness inside you.
- Reject the life of sin.
- Refuse to disobey God.
- Let your life be a profit to God.
- Resist the devil.
- Protect the seed of greatness in you.
Satan is a thief and will always want to steal from you.
John 10:10 says, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.”
