“Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down. And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly. And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray thee, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be precious in thy sight.” II Kings 1: 9-13

We know that God does all things for specific purposes. When God created man, he gave him work before giving him some other things because it is important to work.(Genesis 2:15).

Therefore, in this working week, things will work for you, your work will attract supernatural favour, the source of your income will not run dry, your garden (workplace and position) will flourish and you will partake of the good of the land (your workplace) in the everlasting name of Jesus. AMEN.

After the death of Ahab King of Israel, King Ahaziah fell sick in Samaria and sent his messengers to enquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, an idol whether he will recover.

God then sent His servant to meet them and tell them, is it that there is no God in Israel that you now consult idol, therefore the King Ahaziah will not recover but die from the sickness. That’s when the battle line was drawn between the King and the Prophet. The work of the Prophet was at stake!!!.

In our text on the first occasion, fifty soldiers came and their commander said” man of God the King has commanded that you should come down” That was to come to their level, a demotion by definition!!!. But anti-degrading and anti-arrest, fire answered for Elijah. Whoever planned to demote you in your place of work will suffer all round demotion by fire, in the name of Jesus. For this reason acquire a working fire, so that things will work for your promotion rather than your demotion.

Furthermore, a second group came sooner than later with the same mandate but with urgency, because time was of an essence, this man must be taken out before his time, the Prophet who has the temerity and audacity to issue a statement against the King must be summarily executed. But the King forgot the God factor, the ultimate deciding factor, the one who says and it’s unchangeable. After all isn’t not written, Lamentation 3:36-37 that:

To subvert a man in his cause, The Lord approveth not. Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, When the Lord commandeth it not?

When they came, with a higher sense of urgency, TIMELY FIRE came to the rescue of Elijah, as he spoke the second group of fifty one soldiers were turned to ashes by the instrumentality of the timely fire. You need the timely fire, that manifests exactly when required, and can you imagine that the fire did not manifest at the right time? What would have happened?

Finally, the third group came mainly to accentuate and propagate the FIRE OF DOMINION. The leader went on his knees and pleaded with the Prophet, and on the strength of this character God instructed His servant to go with him. Nobody dominates without superior power, the superior fire and power you need to dominate in your place of work, in order to keep shame at bay receive it now in the wonder working name of Jesus. By reason of this multi faced overcomers fire your detractors will be terrified, you will be edifier, and God will be glorified in all your working life henceforth in Jesus’ name.

Change your management by embracing Jesus as your Lord and Saviour NOW after you have confessed and repented from all your sins.
