ACCEPTABILITY



“...To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth except him that receiveth it.” (Rev. 2:17)

Another known symbolism of white is acceptability. When a man is accepted, it means he is loved. It also implies that the individual is preferred above the others. The book of Romans 9:13, says, “As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” 

Why did God hate Esau? You may be tempted to think that it is probably because of what Esau did. No, it is not.

In Gen 25:23, the Bible says, “And the LORD said unto her, two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.” 

Looking at what happened in the womb, if anybody deserved punishment, it was Jacob because, he was the one who struggled and contended with Esau. 

Things went the other way so God preferred him to Esau. Everything, like acceptability, boils down to divine favour. 
In the name of Jesus, I pull down every stronghold in your life. 

I release your deliverance, from the East, West, North, and South, to you because of your renewed integrity. I break the enemy’s chains. 

Whatever stopped you yesterday will not stop you today, in the name of Jesus. Amen!

Words of Wisdom: When a man is accepted, it means he is loved.

Prayer/Confession: LORD, you have seen my integrity and accepted me. I am walking in divine favour. Amen!
