In this series, we shall be looking at issues that causes tears on mankind and procure solutions from God’s word. Every form of tears is one of many curses among the curses of the law listed in Deuteronomy chapter 28 and Genesis chapter 3 which has been plaguing humanity since the fall of the first man {Adam}. But redemption through the shed blood of Christ brought a change of story for mankind. This is what we shall be exploring in this exposé and I strongly believe that at the end of this series, I see no reason why you will ever shed tears anymore except for the tears of joy as a result of what the Lord has done in your life and destiny. So sit down and be blessed as you read and digest this message.

 

 

TOPIC: THE ORIGIN OF TEARS

 

TEXT: Isaiah 25:6-8

“And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.

He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it”

 

When God created man in the Garden of Eden, tears was not part of God's plan for mankind; In fact, it was never imagined nor conceived by God for man to shed tears for anything. Genesis 1:31. “And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. {"Good" was the plan, not "Tears"}. Proverbs 10:22; Ecclesiastes 3:14.

 

So where did tears emerge from?

Genesis 2:17; “but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die”

Genesis 3:9-19; “And Jehovah God called unto the man, and said unto him, Where art thou?

And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

 

And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

 

And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And Jehovah God said unto the woman, What is this thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

 

And Jehovah God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, cursed art thou above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: and I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed: he shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

 

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy pain and thy conception; in pain thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

 

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in toil shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”

 

Tears which were never part of God's program for mankind, showed up when man rebelled against God. "And the rebellion was enabled by the presence of satan. {Sin is rebellion against God}.

 

So anywhere sin and satan is present, tears is a must, because tears are the natural habitat and products of satan and his demons; and it is sin that attracts the devil.

 

Anything that is of God, {whether business, career, job, family, relationship, destiny etc}, tears will never be part of it; in fact whatever God does in your life is to put an end to your tears. It is the blessings of the Lord that wipes away tears from people's faces. Isaiah 25:6-8;

Ecclesiastes 3:14. “I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

Proverbs 10:22. The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

 

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF TEARS?

 

It is important for us to know and understand the meaning of tears and what it’s all about.

 

1. Tears are an expression of emotional pain, sorrow and regrets. Humans are naturally emotional; that is why we have feelings, mood swings and all those reactions to situations and circumstances that we sometimes find ourselves. Each time our emotions get the wrong message, there is tendency for those emotions to play up and express themselves. Those expressions come out as pain, sorrow or regrets.

 

2. Tears are the anguish of the soul that sometimes pours out as water from your eyes {which are the window of the soul}. That is why when a saint or child of God sheds tears, it touches God because it is the anguish of the soul, and God said in Ezekiel that the soul of every being belongs to Him; Ezekiel 18:4. {That is why God must end your tears right now as you are reading this message in the name of Jesus Christ}.

 

3. Tears are a bonus point in favour of the kingdom of darkness. {So anytime you weep for any reason other than to glorify God, the kingdom of darkness rejoices. That is why the scriptures encourage us to praise God always, because it creates the atmosphere of heaven {which is joy} around you for God to act. Philippians 4:4: “Rejoice in the Lord always: again I will say, Rejoice.; (ASV). 2Corinthians 6:10: “as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.” (ASV)

 

NOTE

One of the major reasons Jesus came to this world was actually to put an end to the tears of mankind. And Christ has given us every tool to continue in the work of ending tears for mankind.

One of them is "the communion table"; another is "high frequency praise"; intense/fervent warfare prayers and several others in the scriptures.

 

 

“The enemy has no legal right to continue on abated in your life for this long; because Christ has put an end to the tears of mankind {yours inclusive}. So I see no justifiable reason for you to shed tears for the negative circumstances or situations of your life. Begin to turn things around by engaging tools already available for our victory in Christ Jesus. 1 John 5:4-5

“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

 

CONCLUSION

Your tears must end this month; that joblessness causing tears must end now, barrenness must end now, poverty must end now, oppression must end now, sickness must end now. Whatever it is that is causing tears in your life must end now; so I like you to cooperate with God to put an end to tears in your life right now by engaging some of these tools at your disposal. And as you do them, I see God wiping away all of your tears in the name of Jesus Christ.
