TEXT: Acts 12:21-23
21. And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.

22. And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.

23. And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

MEMORY VERSE: And it came to pass about ten days after, that the LORD smote Nabal, that he died. 1 Samuel 25:38

Herod made himself an enemy to the children of God, the apostles. In Acts 12:2, he killed James and unbelievers were rejoicing and so he put forth his hand again and arrested Peter (the chief apostle) intending to kill him the way he killed James but he did not know that he has dug his own grave.

I don't know who is pursuing after you or making charms or taking your name to shrines or plotting one evil or the other against you, whatever thing they have done against you will go back to the sender. God says He will fight for you and you will hold your peace. Your pursuers will kill themselves.

As Herod could not succeed in killing Peter, your enemy will not succeed in his evil plans against you. What you need is to serve God committedly and He will be a defence for you. He will fight every battle for you and bring down every Goliath confronting you. As a chosen, you have nothing to fear because your God is the Almighty God. He is the Omnipotent Jehovah, the man of war, the captain and commander of the host in the wilderness. He will vanquish your enemies for you. He will give your enemies puzzle that will cause them to make mistake

In today's text above, God allowed Herod to make that oration that fateful day and in the course of it, he made a mistake by taking the glory that belongs to God. Quickly God sent worms to eat him up. And so a whole king Herod was eaten by worms, our God is awesome. So shall your enemy be eaten up by worms.

Remember, God killed him because he touched the apple of the Lord's eyes Peter.

Today, you are that Peter and any evil man or woman that will do any evil against you shall die for it. Today God will avenge for you against your enemies and they will kill themselves just like the three nations that came out against Jehoshephat in (2Chronicles20:23).

Make a list of your perceived enemies, ask God to arise and confront them.

Any kingdom or altar where they are calling your name, let that kingdom or altar catch fire.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior. I surrender my life to you. Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!
