SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/13/15 “The End Of All Shame And Disgrace!” (Isaiah 61:7)
Premise Question: What does it mean to enjoy a double share of honor, possess a double portion of prosperity and to personally own and experience real joy and great delight that lasts forever?
Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours. (Isaiah 61:7 NLT)
Rather than continuing to receive and having to constantly endure the degrading humiliation of insult after insult being heaped upon you, along with experiencing huge personal regret and feeling the pain of shame and ignominious disgrace, as well as, also being the focal point of everyone’s disdain and favorite object of scorn; you will now be the recipient of a double blessing and anointing. And, rather than experiencing a loss of respect, honor and esteem, while invariably being dismissed by everyone, you will now be overjoyed, expressing and rejoicing fully in The LORD’S delight, because of your wonderful legacy and glorious inheritance. You shall now receive a double portion blessing of provision and protection, as you walk, work and worship, flourishing and thriving, in your own land, continually being filled to overflowing, with the joy, strength and honor of The LORD forevermore. (Isaiah 61:7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Enjoying a double share of honor is when all of your shame and ignominious disgrace is removed and replaced with double the amount of honor and recognition of that which you were receiving and were recognized for while being dishonored. Example: You are highly esteemed, honored and desired; and therefore, now chosen, and when chosen, you are now chosen first, not last!
Possessing a double portion of prosperity means that you have received twice as much as the anointing, the blessing and gift that’s been given to others! Examples: Elisha’s double anointing that he received from The LORD, through Elijah; Job’s prosperity of many blessings of family, lands and possessions, along with his influence and respect was twice what it was before he was tested and tried. Interesting to note: Job was greatly blessed, not only after the testing, but after he prayed for blessings to be bestowed upon his friends, the same friends who had criticized him and told him to give up, curse Papa God and die; and also, a double portion of honor should be given to those spiritual leaders who serve honorably and handle their ministerial duties well, especially for those who work diligently preaching, teaching and effectively communicating The Word.
When someone has the wonderful and glorious experience of enjoying, with complete confidence and the full assurance of knowing that you now own and personally possess, the greatest joy and most pleasurable delight, and that nothing and no one can ever remove it or take it away from you, as it is a joy that lasts forever, well, that absolutely means it’s time to celebrate and rejoice! Right? Blessings…
