Get ready to receive divine rescue!

Archbishop (Dr.) Olanrewaju OBEMBE

Psalm 37:39-40 “BUT THE SALVATION OF THE RIGHTEOUS IS OF THE LORD: He is their strength in the TIME OF TROUBLE; and the LORD shall HELP THEM, and DELIVER THEM: He shall DELIVER THEM from the wicked, and SAVE THEM, because they TRUST IN HIM. Daniel 6:26-27 “I make a decree, that in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for He is THE LIVING GOD, and STEADFAST FOR EVER, and His Kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall be even unto the end; HE DELIVERETH AND RESCUETH, and HE WORKETH signs and wonders in Heaven and in earth, WHO HATH DELIVERED DANIEL from the power of the lions.” Psalm 34:19 “MANY ARE THE AFFLICTIONS of the righteous: BUT THE LORD delivereth him OUT OF THEM ALL.”

In recent times, Bible scholars engaged in theological discourse on “THE SALVATION OF THE RIGHTEOUS.” And the question is whether the righteous or the believer needs salvation after he has been saved or born again? The Scripture specifically talks about the “Salvation of the Righteous that comes directly from the LORD.” From the Word of God, it is quite clear that the believer is living in an environment, where EVIL IS PREVALENT (1 John 5:19) and as such, he will require daily deliverance and protection from evil. JESUS taught the believer to pray against evil. Matthew 6:13 “AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION, BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL: The Bible declares that many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of THEM ALL (Psalm 34:19).

The affliction of the righteous is not an indictment on the righteousness of the righteous. Whoever you are, you will face the negative challenges of life. In John 9:3 “JESUS answered, neither hath this man SINNED, nor his parents: but that THE WORKS OF GOD should be made MANIFEST IN HIM.” Every affliction of the believer gives God the covenant opportunity to demonstrate His Power and silence the wicked. The believer may not be immune to the challenges of life, but he will always receive deliverance and rescue from the God of our Salvation. It is quite clear that God positions Himself to the righteous or the believer, as HIS DELIVERER AND RESCUER. Daniel 6:27 “HE DELIVERETH AND RESCUETH, and HE WORKETH signs and wonders in Heaven and in earth, who hath DELIVERED DANIEL from the power of the lions.”

The word “RESCUE” is a very strong word from the Hebrew. It paints the picture of an individual, who is helpless and cannot deliver himself in a very oppressive situation. It is a state, where a believer had to be “extricated from a dungeon and carried out of prison or from an excruciating destructive stronghold.” This was the case of Daniel, a righteous man who was thrown into the lion’s den, where he was expected to be mauled by hungry lions. But God showed up as a RESCUER. Daniel was delivered. And the REVELATION of God as A RESCUER and DELIVERER were displayed simultaneously. Every one of us, irrespective of his status, will always require God’s RESCUE AND DELIVERANCE MISSION. Since the fall of man, God has always engaged in RESCUE REDEMPTIVE MISSION for mankind. Our daily challenges are beyond our human capacity.

God commands us to PRAY AND CALL UPON HIM in our times of trouble. Psalm 50:15 “AND CALL UPON ME IN THE DAY OF TROUBLE: I will DELIVER THEE, and thou shalt glorify Me.” Today, no matter what the excruciating challenge is, do not start blaming yourself. Ask specifically for GOD’S RESCUE MISSION in your life, since you cannot help yourself. All through the ages, God RESCUED ALL those who cried to Him for help. It was repeated in Psalm 107: 6, 13, 19, 28 that “Then they cried unto the LORD IN THEIR TROUBLE and He (DELIVERED, SAVED, BROUGHT, etc) them out of their distresses. In the Mighty Name of JESUS, receive DIVINE RESCUE from Financial strangulation, Debts, Sickness, Oppression, Negative issues, etc. You are set free in the Name of JESUS. The LORD HIMSELF RESCUES YOU TODAY IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME. The BLOOD OF JESUS SPEAKS YOUR DELIVERANCE AND RESCUE.

Prayer: Father God, I turn to You today and I ask in the Mighty Name of JESUS for Your RESCUE MISSION. I ask for Your deliverance from all the evil plots of men. In JESUS MIGHTY NAME, I receive TOTAL DELIVERANCE and emancipation from all the negative currents of life. In JESUS MIGHTY NAME, I am rescued and delivered.
