KEY SCRIPTURE: Acts 20:9 ” And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.”
Apostle Paul in Troas spent some moment ministering or sharing the word of God there. Paul had quite a short time to stay with these brethren and so he had to give them much. He spent a great deal of time speaking to these brethren. He spoke deep into the might.
One of the young men sat in a window and over the period of listening to Paul he was taking over by sleep and so fell through the window onto the ground. This event must teach ushers in every church or meeting to be alert to check all those whose sitting place could be dangerous to them. Children should be specially protected against accident or straying away from the meeting place into some strange hands.
The bible said this young man who fell off from the third floor was taken up dead. Apostle Paul was not moved but went over and prayed for him to come back to life. Please listen, although the boy might have mistakenly sat in the window it is one of the opportunistic strategies of the devil to disrupt such a wonderful meeting. Please ministers of God, don’t get scared when such accidents come up. Satan just want to break the faith of the people and disrupt the meeting as a whole. Exercise faith in the word to preserve the serenity of the meeting and the impact that the Spirit intends to get across to the people.
I had an experience when a girl fell and hit the back part of her head on the edge of the stairway and starting bleeding profusely. When she was carried to me, a voice started speaking through her. The voice said, “you see we have killed her, we have killed her”. I quickly reacted, you liar gets off in Jesus name, nothing is wrong with her. This girl although was bleeding never collapsed. She was sent to the hospital and was stable throughout the treatment given to her at the hospital”. Beloved readers if I had panicked in that moment the girl would have collapsed and something terrible could have happened to her. Every meeting held in the name of Jesus, has the Lord’s presence and he is ready to honour every step of faith we take. Satan has various ways to disrupt a meeting or service, make sure you don’t allow him to dictate affairs for you. He does not have that right but waits on you, what you will say and do.
I represent the king of kings and Lord of Lords. I am not ignorant of the devices of the devil. Satan would never have the last words in my life and in whatever I do. With faith in God’s word I am always in charge in Jesus name
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
