THEME: BEWARE OF DREAM KILLERS
Text: Genesis 37:5, Matthew 10:36
37:5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.
10:36 And a manâ€™s foes shall be they of his own household.
â€œThen there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.â€ (Genesis 37:28)
The story of Joseph and his brothers should serve as an eye-opener to those who often believe that the way they regard others, is the same way that others regard them. It is the rat that is already inside a house that passes information to its fellows regarding the position of the fish hidden in the kitchen. That means, it is those that are close to you; that know your secret that can proffer information that will nail you.
Joseph joyfully told them about his dreams, but they were not happy with him and they planned evil against him and eventually sold him off to slavery. You must be wary of dream killers that are all around you; ready to sell you even to your enemies. They laugh with you and eat with you, but their hearts are not straight towards you. Therefore, you must choose how to open your mouth in their presence. Be careful what you discuss with them. They must never know that important secret you hold so dear to your heart. They might turn it against you.
Sing a few warfare songs, thank God for yet another day and then take the following prayer points.
1. Every household enemy working to terminate my dream, in the name of Jesus, I rebuke you. I come against all the betrayers, backbiters and blackmailers working against my dream. Let them scatter, in Jesusâ€™ name.
2. Any conspiracy, gang-up, evil gathering, evil representation against my life; scatter, in Jesusâ€™ name. All those giving the counsel of Ahithophel against me, May their counsel be turned to foolishness.
3. Any manipulation of my dream life; end in disaster. Let the kingdom be destroyed. I cancel eating in the dream. Let the spiritual caterer feeding me with poison, catch fire. Let the spirit husband responsible for defilement, pollution and contamination through sexual relationship, be cut off.
