Titus 2:11-15 NKJV

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.“


The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23). Jesus Christ saved us from eternal condemnation by nailing our sins and iniquities on the cross for the benefit of the whole world. His blood dripping down His face to the cross, wipes away all our iniquity when we repent and look for the blessed hope of eternal life, and we are called to shun away from all unrighteousness, ungodliness and be ardent for every good work by the grace of God. 


Iniquity in Hebrew is written as evel, avlah or olah which means unrighteousness or lawlessness. When temptations overcome a person it leads to iniquity. This gives opportunity for the devil to distract someone from the will of God and he comes in to implement his main agenda of killing, stealing and destroying (John 10:10). Iniquity then may have dominion over someone and the word of God gives room for escape (Psalms 119:133). Iniquity comes at the point of one’s conception due to the fallen nature of man (Psalms 51:5). This gives room for child birth deformities, miscarriages, hereditary illnesses, addictive behavior and other challenges. The Israelites separated themselves from all foreigners and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers. They also read the Book of the Law, confessed and worshiped God (Nehemiah 9:2-3). Joshua and the Israelites went to war against the Amorites and lost the battle. He had sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is near Beth Aven, the house of iniquity to the east of Bethel, where the soldier of Ai killed some  Israelites and chased others away, and their hearts melted in fear and became like water (Joshua 7:2-5). While taking new territories, it does not mean that every war must be won especially if the people are living in iniquity. The Lord discloses that, Israel sinned and violated His covenant. They took devoted things, stole, lied, and therefore the Lord rejected them lest they destroyed every unclean thing  (Joshua 7:10-12). The Lord ordered that they people must consecrate themselves and destroy every idol so that they may win their battles and emerge victorious. God is our Good Shepherd and lays down His life for us His sheep. The Lord cautions us from becoming workers of iniquity for this results in destruction (Matthew 7:21-23). He calls us to be holy because He is Holy and work out our salvation with fear and trembling by His mercy and grace.


We declare that Jesus You are our Lord and King. We declare the victory that You Jesus have won for us on the cross. We raise Your banner Lord our God Jesus Christ. Let the earth rejoice and let the heavens be glad. May You allow the portal of heaven to be open and take charge of our lives, families and nation. We glorify You Jesus Christ who takes away the sins of the world. May You draw us near to You and forgive us, cleansing us with Your precious blood and open our eyes that we may see and receive Your true salvation together with our family members, nation and nations of the world. May You destroy every enemy, opposer and accuser of our lives and destinies. May You help us to walk according to Your work and purpose for the feet of the righteous are ordered by You Lord. May You renew our minds and hearts according to Your holiness and righteousness. Create in us clean hearts and renew Your steadfast spirit within us. May You cause us to love what You love and to hate what You hate. May Your Holy Spirit reveal to us the truth and convict us to righteousness, sin and judgement. May Your kingdom come and will be done on earth as it in heaven. May You bless us and keep us dear Lord Jesus. May You shine Your face towards us and be gracious unto us. May You show Your countenance unto us and give us peace. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forevermore. Amen
