KEEP KNOCKING

‘But Peter continued knocking…’ – Acts 12 vs 16

Hello Beloved, how do you do? I trust that the LORD has been your trusted helper. This moment, I want to bring you an exhortation which Revelation came from scriptures one can’t easily get them from. But I got them by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and I now share these Spirit-Breathed thoughts with you. Be Lifted!

At this moment, I like us to read our opening scripture again;

‘But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.’ – Acts 12 vs 16 {KJV}

Beloved, as I read this passage, the Spirit of God amplified the first four (4) words of that passage to my hearing once more, and suddenly, I caught a revelation on Prayer. It says, But Peter continued knocking. The words BUT & CONTINUED as used there is very important in that line. ‘But & Continued’ as used there signifies that Peter was knocking to no avail, but he kept on knocking.

Child of God, the LORD, your LORD, wants you to be strong in Faith. Sometimes, you got to keep knocking on the door of Heaven till God honors your requests! – Selah. Keep knocking if there is a delay. Keep knocking! Keep knocking!! Keep knocking!!! This is what the LORD wants to pass across to you at this special moment. But Peter continued knocking. – Selah

The second Revelation in this light came from John 8 vs 7. Let’s see it;

‘So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.’ – {KJV}

Beloved, as I read through this scripture, I was caught in some thoughts once again by the Spirit, and the Spirit of God amplified this line in my spirit; So when they continued asking him, then HE amplified this; So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself. Then I understood what HE was passing across to me. Here, HIS lifting up Himself was directly tied to their continuous asking HIM. The Spirit of God began to expound to me that these indeed are in-between line Revelations, but they are the operational principles that surround Prayer and Answers in the Kingdom f God. – Selah

Now all these confirm the words of Jesus in HIS parable in Luke 18 vs 1 - 8. Let’s see it;

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:
And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? - {KING JAMES VERSION}

From this Parable, we see that the widow woman received answers from the unjust judge because of her continuous coming to him. And the LORD said there that likewise will God do to us HIS children who cry day and night unto HIM {Verse 7 – 8}. You see? The LORD even made mention of God bearing long with us upon our requests {verse 7}. This tells us that when our expectations seem delayed, it doesn’t call for discouragement, but continuous prayers. Remember the verse 1, ‘Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.’

God Bless You.
