For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. (Mark 9:41)
After reading this message, you shall make profit and recover all that you have lost to the cankerworms and caterpillars in the years past. God is bringing back to your life all that the devil and life has stolen from you.
“For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name…” God gave a revelation about water many years ago. One of the greatest medicines is a cup of water. Exodus 23:25 says, “And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.” All the ingredients and nutrients that revitalize the body metabolism is
contained in the chemical formula (H2O).
More so, when this cup of water is blessed by a prophet, it works miracles. There are some of you reading this message that your lives and businesses have come down, Job 14:9 says, “Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.” I see your: life, career, ministry and marriage blossoming in Jesus name. A cup of water that is blessed in the name of Jesus carries healing components. Water means the Word of God. Water also means life and the Holy Spirit.
“For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.” There is something called “Reward”. God is a REWARDER; all these your sufferings have a day of reward. I prophecy to you that you
shall not lose your reward in this life: all your labour shall not be in vain, your hard work shall be rewarded. You
shall be rewarded concerning your children, your life and your profession. I declare these months to be your season of reward; your months of compensation and recovery. For your years of labour and fasting and praying, you shall not lose your reward. Say this prayer, “O LORD, fight my battles for me and I shall not lose my reward in the name of Jesus.”
Reward can be lost, because there is a spirit that subtracts or minimizes someone's effort. If you work hard and put in your best, but get little or nothing in return. Revelations 3:11 says, “Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.” I pray for you, that when you have labored, worked very hard, suffered, strived, waking up early and sleeping late: in this life, nobody will take your crown. 1 Samuel 15:28 says, “And Samuel said unto him, The LORD hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.” Say this prayer, “Father, let my blessing not be taken to my neighbor.” If the blessing is given to someone else, it is not painful; but when it is given to your neighbor: It means you will see him rise daily, while you go down. 2 Samuel 3:1 says, “Now there was long war between the house of Saul and the house of David: but David waxed stronger and stronger, and the house of Saul waxed weaker and weaker.” One prayer you should pray in this life is that your neighbor should not carry your star or enter your position. It is not your portion: your neighbour, colleague and siblings will not interchange you. 1 Peter 5:10 says, “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.”
Grace is the opposite of disgrace. For you not to be
disgraced, then you carry grace. For many years, some people have tried to disgrace me, but they are unable because I carry grace. Zechariah 4:7 & 9 says, “…And he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.” I declare to you that you shall not be disgraced. “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while.…” Nobody says you will not suffer, but let the suffering be for a while. Your prayer should be, “Lord, let this suffering not be forever. Let it not last till I die; but let it be for a while.” After you have suffered for a while, God will do four things for you: He will make you perfect, He will stablish, He will strengthen, and He will settle you. There is a day of perfection, establishment, strengthening and settlement. May God do it for you in the name of Jesus.
1 Corinthians 9:27 says, “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” This is not referring to the last day judgment alone, but also today. Jesus is the Word of God and the Word of God is Jesus. Jesus said, “He is the same yesterday, today and forever.” John 1:1-2 &14 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” Psalm 119:89 says, “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” Psalm 119:11 says, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
