Today we begin a three-part prophetic exhortation that the Lord gave to Rose that we have entitled “Have you been robbed?” The truth of the matter is that we have a common enemy, called Satan, whose goal it is to steal everything God has given and made available to us, because he is a thief and a robber. Jesus said, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10). Yes, the thief is Satan himself, with his host of demons, and his false teachers and prophets. But Jesus concludes the verse saying, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Yes, Jesus is God’s great restorer, and He wants to restore everything the enemy has stolen from you. Intertwined in these lines are various Scripture references, making it easy for you to confirm the Biblical accuracy of these truths.
Have You Been Robbed Of Joy?
-By Rose Hill
Are you robbed and plundered? Has the devil taken things by force that belong to you? Are you hiding in a house of bondage? (Isaiah 42:22)
I want to restore to you the joy of your salvation, saith God. I will show you the path that leads to that joy. (Psalm 51:12)
It is in My presence where you will find fullness of joy. I have great pleasures for you in My right hand. I am ready to give them to you, but you must be here with Me and take them from My hand. I don’t want you to be robbed any longer of the joy that I want to give you. (Psalm 16:11)
I want to be your strength and song. I want to do excellent and glorious things for you. With joy you will take these things from My right hand if you are with Me and in My presence. So don’t let the devil rob you any longer. (Isaiah 12:2-5)
That sorrow and sighing he has given you I want to replace with everlasting joy. Then you will come into My house with singing, and joy and gladness will be poured out over your head as anointing oil.(Isaiah 35:10)
I want you to wear this joy as an ornament or diadem of beauty. Then you shall also wear praise as a beautiful garment. It will cover you and people will see this beautiful garment of praise flowing because of the joy in your heart. (Isaiah 61:3)
Yes I want to give you My joy and gladness. So be there at My right hand and ask of Me what I have for you. (John 15:11)
Surely you will find that it is joy and gladness full and complete. (John 16:24)
