April – The God of Recompense

Categories: Word of the Month

Calvary greetings in the name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who has made it possible for us to come into the month of April 2011 – the month where we will encounter Jehovah Gomolah—The God of Recompense.

Recompense means: to make amends for loss or harm suffered; to compensate, pay or reward for effort or work, to punish or reward for an action. .

Have you put in a great effort, only to receive no reward? This is your season of recompense in Jesus Name. The Bible tells us in Heb. 11:6b that God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. Your labour has not been in vain, He will reward you in full this month in Jesus Name.

The Bible says in Isa. 35:4 “Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.” Are you facing a fearful situation? God will save you from that trouble in Jesus Name. Perhaps you have been falsely accused or you have been rejected wrongly? This month God will make amends for your loss, He will compensate you in Jesus Name.

The Bible says in Heb. 13:8 that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He has the ability to go into your past, your foundation and recompense you for everything that you have lost over the years. This promise of recompense is not for today only or even this month only-God will go into your yesterdays and repay you in full. Joel 2:25 says “And I will restore to you the YEARS that the locust hath eaten.”

Recompense also refers to punishment for an action. The Bible says in Deut. 32:35 “To me belongeth vengeance and recompense.” Brethren, it is not our place to take vengeance  on our enemies. Remember that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood (Eph. 6:12) and our weapons of warfare are not carnal (2 Cor. 10:4) . Be rest assured that God will punish your enemies. Even in this season, God will paralyse all who oppress you in Jesus Name. He will send confusion to every evil gathering against you in Jesus Name.  Are you experiencing any captivity? Is your progress being restricted or limited? God will break every prison door that is caging you in Jesus Name. He will break every chain holding you down in Jesus Name. You will begin to shoot forward during this month as God compensate you in Jesus Name. Expect divine advancement this season in Jesus Name.

Finally beloved, it is essential in this season that you are clearly on the Lord’s side. Jer. 51:6 says Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD’s vengeance; he will render unto her a recompense.” 2 Thess. 1:8 “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.” In this season where God will bring judgement upon His and our enemies, we must be clearly marked for Christ so that we are not caught in the crossfire.

Brethren, this is an exciting month, it is also the month where we will celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ during Easter. Jesus came that you may have abundant life (John 10:10) therefore claim what is rightfully yours this season and live that abundant life!
