JESUS IS YOUR HORN OF SALVATION
Luke 1:68-71 “Blessed is the Lord God of Israel, for He has visited and redeemed His people, and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David, As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets, who have been since the world began, that we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us.” NKJV
A horn has many functions that it provides. It is mostly associated with festivities as it is blown as a musical instrument. It is also a weapon that is used for defence or attack. When wild animals fight, they use horns to attack predators and to defend themselves. They also use the horns for offence in defending their territorial ground and showing dominance. When one watches their behavior, you see that their strength lies in their horns.
The above scripture says, blessed is the Lord God of Israel who has visited and redeemed His people, and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David… that we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us.
Our greatest enemy is the devil. He is always against us, opposing our present and future endeavors. He does not only oppose our existence but also opposes the life that God has given us in Christ Jesus. But blessed is the Lord our God who always gives us victory over the devil and all the enemies that rise to oppose us. (1 Corinthians 15:57)
In our key scripture, Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit when he prophesied that a horn of salvation would be raised. This horn of salvation was to deliver the people from the hands of their enemies and those who hate them. Indeed Zechariah’s prophecy came to pass when God visited His people and raised a horn of salvation (Jesus Christ); not just for Israel alone, but for everyone who would receive the message of the gospel of Jesus. God knew about all the challenges that His people would face and made provision for it by raising Jesus to save us. When you have received Him you are safe, shielded and defended against your enemies.
Jesus was made manifest so that we can serve God freely and without any fear (1 John 3:8). Yet for some this is not possible as the devil is always threatening them with death or afflicting them with incurable sicknesses. Each time when such people take their medication, they get reminded that they can die at any time. Such people are unable to concentrate on worshipping or serving God freely as they are always threatened by the devil who is always whispering that he can take their life at anytime
Blessed reader, know that you do not have to fear the threats of the devil. He has no power over you. The Lord has given you His son Jesus Christ as a Horn of your salvation so that He can save you from your enemies and from the hands of all who hate you. A horn is a symbol of power, strength and vigour. That is exactly who Jesus Christ is to you. He is your source of power, strength and vigour. The horn gores into the enemies’ flesh and causes damage. The coming of the Lord Jesus brought paralysis to the devil and to his kingdom so that you can worship God in liberty and without fear. It does not matter what type of problems or challenges you might be faced with, know that Jesus is your horn of defence. He will grant you victory over all your enemies
For some families, Christmas season is a time for them to be left alone for days wondering where their family members are. If the devil and his agents are used to making your husband or wife go astray during Christmas time to spend his or her bonus money elsewhere, this year they have another thing coming. The enemy will no longer take the money meant for your children because you now have defence. Those who were planning to snatch away your partner shall face the wrath of your God. Your daughter will not be taken and used by the enemy this Christmas. Neither will the devil influence or enslave your son in alcoholism and drug abuse. I declare that there is no sorcery or divination against you and your children (Numbers 23: 22-23 NKJV). The witches who were preparing evil against you are risking to be gored by the horns.
The horn is not only used for defence but also for attack. You know that the devil and his agents are coming against you and your family. Now is the time for you to stand in power and push them back. Do not wait for them to start the fight; you have Jesus, and you have power. Use the authority that He has given you. Wherever you go or travel to this December, the territorial evil spirits over such locations must feel your presence. They cannot be allowed to operate where you are as you are protected and armed to destroy. Those agents of the devil who have been on the road ruling and bringing death must know your God. They cannot continue to drink the blood of our people on the roads. Stand your ground and push them out of the way in Jesus name. The spirit of premature death cannot touch you and your family. All the graves selected for your family members are closed as the horn is goring the spirit of death out of your family. The horn is coming against the spirits of accidents and the spirits that bring hospitalization and sickness during this season.
Many times we get defeated because of our lack of knowledge. When you receive the Word, you need to stand on it and practice it so that all your obstacles can come down. In Psalm 92: 9-10 it says: “For behold, Your enemies, O Lord, for behold, Your enemies will perish;
all who do evil will be scattered. But my horn [my emblem of strength and power] You have exalted like that of a wild ox; I am anointed with fresh oil [for Your service]”. AMP
Jesus our Horn, came to bring trouble to the kingdom of darkness and bring us out of the hands of the enemies. As you celebrate Christmas know that you are celebrating an unopposed power and strength who is now your Horn of Salvation. Know that you are celebrating your victories over the devil and all his agents. In the remaining days of 2018, all your matters shall get settled for the Lord Jesus is giving you victory today. May the Horn of your salvation continue to destroy all those who oppose you and your family this festive season in the name of Jesus.
