THE CURSE IS REVERSED by Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi!

I want to take you to Nehemiah Chapter 13 versus 1 and 2 and then read a short passage in Ruth. I declare today by the grace of God that you will discover and uncover the secret of your call and the secret of what God has purposed over your life. I declare to you today; you cannot go down; we can only go up. No matter the complication I prophesy you are rising above every limitation. I see you soaring like the eagle.
[Nehemiah Chapter 13 On that day they read in the book of Moses in the audience of the people; and therein was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of God for ever, …] An injunction was placed on two nationalities, two tribes Ammonites and Moabites, blocked, forbidden from entering the congregation of the Lord forever.
Verse 2 [Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: howbeit our God turned the curse into a blessing.] I got a word for you tonight, howbeit, no matter the circumstance there is a word called howbeit.
Somebody here today, howbeit favour is coming over your life. Power is coming on your life. An unction is coming over our life. Howbeit, the lord our God turned the curse into a blessing.
Ladies and gentlemen, brothers, and sisters, may I announce to you that they could deny them bread and water because that was in the human realm and no angel went and sized it from the Ammonites and Moabites and brought it to the Israelites. They could deny them the physical. But when they turned it to the spiritual and said we are going to curse you, God said as for that it cannot happen here.
I declare to you some people may contend with you in the physical realm and God will not have much to say, but when they turn the battle to the spiritual realm God has something to say, howbeit. I see something happening, the Lord our God is turning somethings. Somethings meant to frustrate and weaken the church but howbeit, the Lord our God is fighting the battle.
So when they read this law from the book of Moses, they took action against the mixed multitude coming among the Israelites and blocked all those from Moab or Ammon. Put out of the congregation of the Lord.
We go to the book of Ruth 1, then in a few moments we shall be praying. Are you wearing the whole amour of God? Ladies and gentlemen, prophecy must not replace prayer. At a time when prayers should be rising, we should not overshadow the necessities of prayer with a prophecy. May the almighty God keep the nations of this world, keep your family from trouble.
[Ruth 1 Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons …] Ladies and gentlemen according to the law of Moses the Moabite was not allowed to enter the congregation of Israel, but the Israel man who was facing a problem went to seek refuge in a place where the inhabitants have no right to seek refuge in Israel. He was doing a cross turning, but something was about to happen. Church every curse will be reversed.
He went to live in the land of Moab and a sword of execution began to run through his family. Verse 3 Bible says, and Elimelech Naomi’s husband died. Verse 4 and they dwelled there about ten years. About 10 years they were living in a land that citizens of that land have no right to live in Israel. They were allowed to live there but a sword was cutting through. I declare today, any sword of the enemy by means of anything, pandemic or otherwise cutting through the nations, may that sword be arrested by the power of the most high God.
[Verse 5 And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them] She lost all the males in her family, that cannot be coincidence. Something was working in the environment that was working against the men. Whenever you see any pattern learn to investigate it. The Moabites and Ammonites were the children of Lot conceived of his own daughters. So, men were down in that environment, it was ancestral.
By the time Naomi recognized what was going on it was too late. She said I will go back because she heard a news [6 for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread.] And I bring you a news tonight.
I stand in the holy anointing to declare over your life the visitation of the Lord. Let there be an outpouring of divine grace. May the Lord visit you, visit your life. May the Lord visit the church of Christ. May the Lord pour his power upon the church. We receive a visitation.
I prophesy to you a visitation is coming.
When they came back Naomi had become a miserable woman. She said I went out full and I am coming back empty. When she went out, the people had nothing to eat and the place was dry. Don’t abandon the house of God. Don’t relate to the church according to crisis or difficulty. Let the love of God still be in your heart for the church of God. She said in verse 21 [I went out full and the LORD hath brought me home again empty]. She found out somethings matter more than others. If she had known that going to Moab to get bread to eat into her belly, would cost her, her husband and sons, she would have remained in the famine and eaten small, small what she had till God visits them.
I pray for you that you will recognize the potentials of where you are.
By the time she found out that ten years ago she was full, she had allowed the temporary difficulty to deceive her to make a trip into Moab because she thought Moab is full of bread. She didn’t know she was full ten years ago. There may be challenges but you are full. You didn’t hear what I said. There may be difficulties, but you are full. Don’t forget who you are, what you have. The saints of God have the Holy Ghost, you have the word of God, the blood of Jesus, the name of Jesus, you have the weapons of your warfare. No weapons formed against you shall prosper. If you believe it shout yes!
I know you know the story, so get this quickly, Orpah went back but Ruth continued in faith. I speak over your life that you will be a Ruth with vision. You will see what men cannot see. You will see what eye cannot see.
So, Ruth goes with Naomi, she goes to glean in the farm of Boaz. What she did was, any food she got she brought some to Naomi. Why did she do that? She was reversing a curse. The reason why the Moabites were banned from the congregation of the Lord was because they met not the Israelites with bread and water. So, Ruth said, I am a Moabites, and my ancestors were not charitable. They were wicked to Israel and incurred a curse. But I need just one Israelite as a point of contact to reverse the curse. [Ruth 2:18 And she took it up, and went into the city: and her mother-in-law saw what she had gleaned: and she brought forth, and gave to her …] She gave Naomi bread and water.
You know what happened at the end of the day? The same Naomi who told the two girls I can’t get you a husband. The same Naomi called Ruth and said I will get you a husband in 24 hours. I declare to you the thing is turning.
I came to announce to you it can be turned.
