How To Activate an 11th Hour Miracle (Part 2)
5. Faith It
Remember that it is unto you according to your faith. You need to have faith in God.
The Bible says in Hebrews 11 verses 1 – 2:
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. (New King James Version)
And in Hebrews 11 verse 6:
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (New King James Version)
Jesus often said “be it unto you according to your faith”, or “your faith has made you well (Mark 5:43, Luke 17:19).”
Matthew 9: 29 – 30 says:
29 Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” 30 And their eyes were opened.
Nothing is impossible to a person who believes. A person who believes can obtain an 11th hour miracle. See what the Bible says in Mark 9 verse 23:
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (New King James Version)
6. Find the Relevant Scriptures and Declare Them
The whole world was created by the Word of God (Hebrews 11:3), and so when you declare the Word of God to a situation and command it in the Name of Jesus Christ to align to the Word, it will obey you. Never mind how the situation looks right now.
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. – Hebrews 11:3 (New King James Version)
Search the scriptures and find the Word of God that applies to your situation, and begin to proclaim it and command (in the Name of Jesus Christ) the situation to change to align with the Word of God.
For instance, if you are looking for the fruitfulness of the body you can use the following scriptures:
No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days. - Exodus 23:26 (New King James Version)
You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock. – Deuteronomy 7:14 (New King James Version)
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly. – Psalm 84:11 (New King James Version)
And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. – Deuteronomy 28:11 (New King James Version)
7. Plead the Blood and (Bind the Devil and Loose Your Blessings)
There is power in the Blood of Jesus and you can use it and apply it in your life every day.
By the blood of Jesus we have redemption and forgiveness of sins. See Ephesians 1 verse 7:
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. (New King James Version)
We get victory through the blood of Jesus . In Revelation 12 verse 11 the Bible says:
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. (New King James Version)
You overcome Satan by the blood of Jesus. As you apply the blood of Jesus, you overcome the attacks and resistance of the devil.
How Do You Apply The Blood of Jesus?
Revelations 12:11 says that believers overcome Satan by the blood of Jesus and by the word of their testimony, in other words their confession. You overcome by “pleading” the blood of Jesus. To plead the blood of Jesus means to present it as evidence.
The blood of Jesus grants the believer deliverance, forgiveness of sins, redemption, protection, healing, etc.
Here is an example of how you can plead the blood of Jesus in a situation where you require a miracle:
In the Name of Jesus Christ I plead the blood of Jesus over my life, over my work, my business, the work of my hands and my home. In the Name of Jesus Christ I plead the blood of Jesus on all my business applications and everything I have in the pipeline. Devil, the blood of Jesus is against you, I command you in the Name of Jesus to stay away from my business and everything that concerns me.
Bind the Devil and Loose Your Blessings
You should also bind the devil and loose your blessings. The Word of God says in Matthew 18 verse 18:
Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. (New King James Version)
The devil is usually behind evil occurrences, and when you are a believer you have been given the right to bind the devil and loose your blessings. So go ahead and do so using the Name of Jesus. Here is an example of how you can do so:
The Word of God says that whatever I bind on earth will be bound in Heaven, so in the Name of Jesus Christ I bind every devil causing ....... and in the Name of Jesus Christ I bind every evil spirit operating behind the scenes to cause .........I command you to be bound in the Name of Jesus Christ.
The Word of God says that whatever I loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven, so in the Name of Jesus Christ I loose my blessings (mention what it is that has been tied up) and I command it to be released to me now. Whatever good thing that the Lord has made available to me that has been tied up or kept away from me, right now I command it to be loosed in the Name of Jesus and I command it to be released to me in Jesus Name.
8. Employ the Mystery of Sacrifice
There is a mystery that not many Christians understand or practice. It is the mystery of sacrifice.
Solomon sacrificed and the Lord visited Him (2 Chronicles 1:6 – 12).
Noah sacrificed and God released a blessing (Genesis 8:20 – 22).
David sacrificed and God ended the plague that was released on Israel (2 Samuel 24:10 – 25).
A sacrifice can turn things around, but how do you rear an altar of sacrifice to God today since we no longer are required to sacrifice animals and burnt offerings to God? You sacrifice the fruit of your labour, ie what you have earned.
How do you sacrifice it? You take what you have earned that is precious to you and you offer it to God as a sacrifice. You have to ensure that it costs you; bear in mind that God knows what a sacrifice to you is and what is a mere gift. If you are rearing an altar of sacrifice to God to stop a plague or bring a turnaround, ensure it is a sacrifice indeed. How do you present it to God? You can do that in one of these ways:
i) By giving it to God in your local church. It is between you and God so you do it in secret. You do not tell anyone, just take your sacrifice to the church and during the offering time place it before God (in the offering basket or bag) or offer it through your church’s online giving platform. However, you must talk to God about it beforehand preferably in the comfort of your home. Speak to the Lord and tell him that you are rearing an altar of sacrifice to Him for so and so breakthrough or miracle. Sow your sacrifice as a weapon towards what you desire.
ii) By giving it to God through an evangelistic ministry that preaches the gospel. Same as the giving it to God through your local church; talk to God about it and inform Him that you are giving Him a sacrifice and tell Him for what purpose (tell God the miracle you are expecting).
iii) By giving it to God by sowing it as a prophet’s offering to an anointed minister of the gospel. Likewise you tell God that you are giving Him a sacrifice for so and so purpose via the anointed minister of the gospel. You do not need to tell the minister why you are sowing the sacrificial seed, you have already settled it with God. Just give the seed as a gift to the minister and watch God work.
With these steps you can activate an 11th hour miracle. It does not matter how late it is or how far gone the situation, remember that Lazarus was already “smelling” (decomposing) – see John 11. Maybe the situation you are in is already dead, presumed a lost cause and “smelling”, God can change the situation and turn things around.
Employ these eight steps. As a matter of fact, they are actions you can take together all in the same day; you can set aside 24 hours to take these actions or you can spread them out. If you have walked away from God, Jesus is waiting to come into your life. You can surrender to Him again by praying the Salvation Prayer.
God is faithful and He is able to do all things. We trust that as you follow these steps, God will visit you with an 11th hour miracle.
We would like to rejoice with you and praise God for your miracle, send your testimonies to firstname.lastname@example.org
Jesus Is Lord!
