FASTING IS AN INVESTMENT:
By Mightiest Prophet Dr. David Owuor
Whenever the LORD rises to call you –the LORD rises and calls you– that is the time at which to rise up, and tell Him, “LORD I am ready. I am willing.” Because there is a perpetual conflict between the two in every heart all over the earth. Every walking being is having that perpetual conflict on a daily basis. The Lord Jesus himself had that conflict, at the Garden of Gethsemane, when the Spirit is saying this and the flesh was too weak. But listen to the point I want to come to, when I said every time the LORD calls you, please, if you can, accept. And I know everybody can. Why did I say so? Because, for example the fasting. I will relate this calling to the fasting we do.
When you fast, whether it is two days or whatever, you are investing credit in The Kingdom of God. It is an investment. Because you don’t know what is ahead! When you are fasting, you are shielding even for your family! You are investing, even, not only for your Ministry, even your children. And so now you hear the story is different. That the others are in drugs and what and what, but my son was always in church. The LORD remembers your children. Because you are investing! That is an investment.
The same thing with the calling of The LORD. When The LORD calls, in other words, He is saying: I want to deposit, I want to deposit my Priesthood in your home. I want to deposit my Treasured Priesthood in your home. It is always important to accept; In the short run you may not know, But just the saying of “Yes”, Because you don’t know what is ahead! It is
always important to accept. You are investing credit in the Kingdom of God.
Holy Fasting as an Investment by Prophet Dr. Owuor:
Kingly Diet, by Prophet Dr. Owuor:
“The following instructions will help you inculcate fasting as a lifestyle in your Christian walk:
1) Begin by taking only drinks for 3 days
2) Break the fast and eat normally
3) The next fast should be 2 days dry fast and break by eating normally.
4) Then next time fast 3 days dry fast
5) Then 4 days dry fast
6) However when you do dry fast, you must break with fluids first then gradually eat light and soft foods like eggs, mashed potatoes, noodles till you recover well.
7) Avoid fasting when doing exams or having a work presentation or major undertaking.”
Isaiah 58:5-11 (Amplified)
5 Is such a fast as yours what I have chosen, a day for a man to humble himself with sorrow in his soul? [Is true fasting merely mechanical?] Is it only to bow down his head like a bulrush and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him [to indicate a condition of heart that he does not have]? Will you call this a fast and an acceptable day to the Lord?
6 [Rather] is not this the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every [enslaving] yoke?
7 Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house—when you see the naked, that you cover him, and that you hide not yourself from [the needs of] your own flesh and blood?
8 Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
9 Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, Here I am. If you take away from your midst yokes of oppression [wherever you find them], the finger pointed in scorn [toward the oppressed or the godly], and every form of false, harsh, unjust, and wicked speaking,
10 And if you pour out that with which you sustain your own life for the hungry and satisfy the need of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in darkness, and your obscurity and gloom become like the noonday.
11 And the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy you in drought and in dry places and make strong your bones. And you shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not.
