2 Kings 7:8-11 NKJV
 And when these lepers came to the outskirts of the camp, they went into one tent and ate and drank, and carried from it silver and gold and clothing, and went and hid them; then they came back and entered another tent, and carried some from there also, and went and hid it.
 Then they said to one another, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent. If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us. Now therefore, come, let us go and tell the king’s household.”
 So they went and called to the gatekeepers of the city, and told them, saying, “We went to the Syrian camp, and surprisingly no one was there, not a human sound-only horses and donkeys tied, and the tents intact.”
 And thegatekeepers called out, and they told it to the king’s household inside.
The Lepers were the first to discover that the Syrian Armies have fled their camp and left a lot of treasures and food behind. They were the ones who took bold steps to approach the enemy camp and found out that the Lord had fought for them and driven the enemies away. They were he first to find out that the Word of God had come to pass that he would deliver His people and give them abundant food. While the whole of the citizens were in the walled city dying of hunger en mass, and the people had began to become cannibals.
THE LEPERS WERE THE FIRST TO KNOW ABOUT THEIR DELIVERANCE.
THEY WALKED INTO ENEMY CAMP AND FOUND SPOILS OF IMMENSE MEASURES.
They entered into ONE SINGLE TENT, and found food and drink and GOLD, SILVER AND CLOTHING, which they carted away to go and hid somewhere. They entered another tent and found abundance of food and drink and TREASURES and went to hide those ones too.
then, they came to their senses:
2 Kings 7:9 NKJV
Then they said to one another, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent. If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us. Now therefore, come, let us go and tell the king’s household.”
THEY DID WELL TO JUDGE THEMSELVES SO EARLY BEFORE SOME PUNISHMENT COULD COME UPON THEM.
THEY SUDDENLY REALIZED THAT THE LORD DID NOT DRIVE THE ENEMIES AWAY FOR THEMSELVES ALONE.
AND THAT…THEY WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO FINISH THE FOOD AND SUPPLIES THE ENEMIES HAD LEFT BEHIND.
THEN, THEY REALIZED THAT SOME PUNISHMENT WOULD COME UPON THEM IF THEY DELAYED IN PASSING THE GOOD NEWS TO THE REST PEOPLE WHO WERE STILL IN BONDAGE OF HUNGER AND THIRST…WHO HAD NOT YET KNOWN THAT THEY HAD BEEN DELIVERED.
That is the picture of many of us.
We had kept the Good News to ourselves for years and now we are already suffering some Punishment.
Many had been delivered from the powers of Darkness and had seen the light of Jesus and had been enjoying the peace and joy and protections from the LORD JESUS, but had never been bothered about the deliverance of others who are still locked up within the Walled-Up City of Bondage of Spiritual Hunger and Thirst.
All around you in your Offices and Working places are people who have not know the source of your Joy and peace in the time of this recession, they are still living in the Walled City of Spiritual Hunger and Thirst, and yet, you have been enjoying the peace and joy which the Lord Jesus had secured for us all.
YOU CAN NOT FINISH THE BLESSINGS THE LORD JESUS HAD SECURED FOR US ALL, WHY WOULD YOU NOT SHARE THE GOOD NEWS OF HIS SALVATION AND DELIVERANCE FROM THE FORCES OF EVIL?
A lot of close associates and friends and co-workers are seriously suffering the consequences of their spiritual ignorance and yet, you have not deemed it fit to let them know the way to the solution of their spiritual problems. You are their friends and fellow-workers. A lot of people are dying for lack of Spiritual food all around us, but WE CAN NOT FINISH THE BLESSINGS THE LORD HAD GOT FOR US.
Now the sacred truth was declared by the Lepers:
2 Kings 7:9 NKJV
“…. We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent. If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us…..”
THE TRUTH IS: SOME PEOPLE HAD WAITED FOR TOO LONG IN SHARING THE GOOD NEWS, AND SOME PUNISHMENT HAD COME UPON THEM.
SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BE CARRIERS OF THE GOOD NEWS FOR THE DELIVERANCE OF CAPTIVES AND HAD DELAYED FOR TOO LONG…ARE NO LONGER ENJOYING THE PEACE AND THE BLESSINGS THEY USE TO ENJOY.
They had wasted the Lord’s grace.
They had blown away the golden opportunities.
some who had been promoted for the sake of sharing the good news had been sacked or demoted.
Some people had lost the SPIRITUAL GIFTS they used to flaunt around , without using them to rescue the perishing.
THE ANOINTING HAD DEPARTED FROM THEM.
THE GIFTS HAVE FADED OFF FROM THEIR LIVES.
May I tell you what to do to recover?
Start showing the Perishing where they can get delivered.
Start calling the Captives that the Lord Jesus.
Had secured for them their deliverance and threat there are abundance blessings outside their Walled City of sins and Spiritual hungers and thirst.
Begin to show them the WAY!
‘Lord make me a shinning Light.
Make me the Guide on to the Way of Life to multitude of Perishing Souls.
May I not waste all these opportunities of being a Shinning Light.
Father, let no Punishment come upon me for all the time I have delayed in passing your Good News message to the Hungry Souls.
