It is a great blessing and a privilege to be back home at the First Love Centre. I have spent the past few weeks around the world holding camps, conferences and more. This week, I would like to share a new series with you entitled, “Eunuchs In The Palace.
“At that time Merodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah: for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered. And Hezekiah was glad of them, and shewed them the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not. Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country unto me, even from Babylon. Then said he, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All that is in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.Then said Isaiah to Hezekiah, Hear the word of the Lord of hosts: Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the Lord. And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon. Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, Good is the word of the Lord which thou hast spoken. He said moreover, For there shall be peace and truth in my days” (Isaiah 39:1-8).
This one of the severe punishments given to the people of Israel. To be a eunuch is not a small thing and many people have been eunuchs. A eunuch was considered to be in a lower status in life. His life was completely changed by being a eunuch. Hezekiah was told that his sons were going to become eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon. Now, this is not a blessing! It is far from a good thing. Nobody must become a eunuch in the palace of God. A eunuch is an unproductive person. He does not bear fruits of what he is. He is permanently made barren and fruitless. That will never be your portion in Jesus name! I am sharing on this to show you what you will never become. You must not become eunuchs in God’s palace. You cannot and will not become a spiritual eunuch, an academic eunuch, a financial eunuch or any kind of eunuch in this life! When God told Hezekiah this, it is like God telling a pastor that his members will not rise and neither will they be great. God is telling us that we must not turn out to be eunuchs in the church that we are in! When you become a eunuch, you do not amount to much. You also do not become anything that God has intended for you to become. It breaks the heart of a father to see their children struggling. It breaks the heart of a true minister to see his members not doing well in all areas of their lives. This will never happen to you in the name of Jesus. “Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed (Psalm 112:1-2). The seed of a man that fears God is blessed. You are declared mighty children! You will produce a generation of blessed people!
