Arrows Of Ichabod Must Backfire!


Topic: Arrows Of Ichabod Must Backfire!



Texts: I Samuel 4 vs 21-22 &  Job 5 vs 19. 
Prayer Targets: 
Brethren seeking the move of God against glory reversal, glory robbery and accident of glory and those who desire their good news to continue forever. 
God shall be as dew unto me. I will grow as the lily;  I will cast forth my roots as Lebanon;  my branches will spread, my beauty as the olive tree and my smell as Lebanon in Jesus' mighty name.  Amen. ( Hosea 14 vs 5-6). 
One of the saddest accidents in the Bible is recorded in 1 Samuel 4 vs 21-22 and it goes thus:"And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband. And she said, The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of God is taken". These statements were made by Phineha's wife after the tragic death of her husband. Hophni  and Phinehas are the two children of Eli, the priest.  The Bible called the two sons of the priest, "sons of Belial" because of their abominable conducts against the people of Israel. As children of a priest, they did not behave themselves wisely- raping women; taking bribe and turning the house of God into a filthy place. God pronounced judgment against them and the two of them died the same day in a battle against Philistines(  1 Samuel 4 vs 10-11). 
Ichabod means "the glory has departed".  It is a worse- than- death experience.  It means emptiness of destiny.  It also means a well of sorrow. Ichabod is hell on earth. Phinehas's wife lost her husband, brother- in-law and father-in-law in a single day. Besides,  the anger and curses of God are upon her husband's house and her little child and the child she would have in future. So, her sorrow was like a fountain that has no end.  Ichabod, therefore, relates to the following experiences: 
1.  Loss of position, favour, help and useful contacts. 2.  Pains occasioned by death of bread winners and destiny helpers. 3. Separation from God as a result of besetting sins.  4. Financial nakedness necessitating borrowing and begging. 5. Stubborn and repeated afflictions like sicknesses. 6. Imprisonment and criminal issues 7. Accidents like fire, auto and air crashes. 8. Any sorrowful experience capable of reversing a good destiny. 
How does Ichabod situation arise? In some cases, it may be occasioned by the anger of God as a result of disobedience of His laws and instructions. Phinehas's wife named her son Ichabod owing to the multiple sorrow that befell her. The sorrow came through the anger of God. May we not incur the anger of God in Jesus' name. Ichabod may arise from enemy's attacks. Satan and his evil workers have their sinister ways of attacking good destinies. They may manipulate situations to work against their targets. They may shoot arrows to challenge and scatter the glory of their victims. They may also orchestrate multiple losses as suffered by Phinehas. However, God is able to destroy such evil works. He is able to return evil arrows to their senders. The essential thing is not to sin against God. If an enemy is fighting you, God will surely deliver you but if it is God that is fighting, who can deliver from His mighty hands? 
Ichabod experience is known by those who are struggling with it. In marriages where love is a foregone experience, or businesses where serial losses are the order of the day or ministries where God is being spoken about in past tenses, or career where promotion is a forgotten possibility or finances where borrowing and begging have become a culture, or health punctured badly by stubborn illnesses- Ichabod is a reality. The good news is that, such situations need not continue. God is able to intervene and set every captive free. He is able to do a new thing and remove the hands of wicked powers from the affairs of His children. Again,  only those who truly stay with God can escapee Ichabod. Are you born again? Are you working for God? Please, think on those things.  Today, as we pray, the deliverance power of the Lord will show forth and new testimonies will follow in Jesus' name. Amen. Shalom.
