Prophetic Message for the year 2015: Prophesy son of man!

Posted by: admin in: ● December 31, 2014

Ezekiel 37:1-14

The Valley of Dry Bones

37 The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath[a] enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’’

So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.

11 Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’ 12 Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13 Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. 14 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.’”

This is the word of God concerning the year 2015

This year shall be a season, when you shall declare and decree! If you will open your mouths and prophesy new things and declare those things that are not as if they were, then will I hear from heaven and validate every word spoken in faith. I am the Lord God of Rehoboth; I will enlarge small places and make rivers oceans. If you will believe and prophesy to your lack to become abundance, and your sicknesses are already seen as wellness then will I do a new thing amongst you. Prophesy unto the ailing earth and it shall be healed, declare new things concerning your nations and leaders. Prophesy unto your women and they shall bear fruits; Bless your children, speak the truth over the works of your hands and you shall be prosperous. In the year 2015, I shall be known as Jehovah Rapha: God the healer. At the mention of my name, I will heal; I will answer you and show you great and mighty things.

Call me with boldness and certainty; call me knowing that I will hear and answer. I sleep not; I am alive and alert. Call for mercy and grace at all times, praise me as the healer, praise me as the provider, your shield and fortress. In this time and season dry bones shall live; the zeal of the Lord of host will do this. This year, you will be established upon your own land and you shall know that I have given you a new mind and a new spirit. It is the spirit of boldness and not of fear.

In the year 2015, declare and decree against drought and fire outbreaks. Pray for Mali, Senegal and francophone African countries. Pray for Singapore and Argentina. Thus saith the Lord concerning Pope Francis “I have called you for a time and a season like this. You are a beacon of light unto all men; You were born in imperfection but perfected through my grace. My son teach the world about the love of Jehovah. I am love divine, sweet and enchanting, in you I have found a sanctuary and a place of rest.

Prophetic Song

There is a healing branch that grows
Where every bitter Marah flows;
This is our health-renewing tree.
“I am the Lord that healeth thee.

”There is an old appointed way
For those who hearken and obey;
Above the gate these words we see:
“I am the Lord that healeth thee.”

There is an ordinance that has stood
Since Israel crossed the parted flood;
It stands today for you and me—
“I am the Lord that healeth thee.”

There is a great Physician still
Whose hand has all its ancient skill;
At His command our pains will flee—
“I am the Lord that healeth thee.”

I PLEDGE MY ALLEGIANCE

Posted by: admin in: ● May 12, 2015

O Jesus, I have promised
To serve Thee to the end;
Be Thou forever near me,
My Master and my Friend;
I shall not fear the battle
If Thou art by my side,
Nor wander from the pathway
If Thou wilt be my Guide.

 

2
Oh, let me feel Thee near me;
The world is ever near;
I see the sights that dazzle,
The tempting sounds I hear;
My foes are ever near me,
Around me and within;
But, Jesus, draw Thou nearer,
And shield my soul from sin.

 

3
Oh, let me hear Thee speaking,
In accents clear and still,
Above the storms of passion,
The murmurs of self-will;
Oh, speak to reassure me,
To hasten, or control;
Oh, speak, and make me listen,
Thou Guardian of my soul.

 

4
O Jesus, Thou hast promised
To all who follow Thee
That where Thou art in glory
There shall Thy servant be;
And Jesus, I have promised
To serve Thee to the end;
Oh, give me grace to follow,
My Master and my Friend.

 

5
Oh, let me see Thy footmarks,
And in them plant mine own;
My hope to follow duly
Is in Thy strength alone.
Oh, guide me, call me, draw me,
Uphold me to the end;
And then to rest receive me,
My Savior and my Friend.

John Ernest Bode (1816-1874

BEYOND PROBABILITY

Posted by: admin in: ● April 25, 2015

Many times, when something we consider out of the ordinary happens, we ask the question “How did that happen?” By our own mental reasoning, the mathematics of such a circumstance does not add up. How often do we give up because there doesn’t seem to be that possibility of the breaking of the dawn? Our generation will not be the first in having a myopic view of what could be, in this universe created by the Ancient of days with whom all things are possible. He has the whole world in His hands and at His command, all things are established. The Bible has a chronicle of events and stories of people who witnessed the majesty and magnanimity of a compassionate God. Through these testimonials the average believer has been prepared to expect the impossible.

The scripture tells us of a man who loved God so much that he was referred to as a friend of God. Abraham was always in awe of a Super power that he had an encounter with when all he knew was the idols of his ancestors. This God instructed him to leave his kith and kin, and travel to a promised land where he would prosper a thousand times more. This man of faith was advanced in age when this encounter happened.

 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty[a]; walk before me faithfully and be blameless. Then I will make my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.”

Abram fell face down, and God said to him, “As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations. No longer will you be called Abram[b]; your name will be Abraham,[c] for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you. I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you. The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God.” (Genesis 17: 1-3)

How in the world would a ninety nine years old man decode the mystery of this message? As of this time, his wife was ninety years old. How could this be? The probability of this prophecy coming to pass made Abraham laugh! “What a word” he would have thought in his mind.

15 God also said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah. 16 I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.”

17 Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, “Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?” 18 And Abraham said to God, “If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!”

The whole scenario was becoming too embarrassing for Abraham; He wanted a way out! It was like, “God thank you for watching out for me but please just leave me with the child I had out of wedlock. Bless Ishmael and let’s leave it at that.” What this friend of God didn’t know was that the word had come out; It will not go back into the mouth of God, void without perfecting that towards which it was sent. The Word spoke the word!

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.“( John 1:1-5)

We all know the happy ending to this story. Today, God is glorified as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel. (Jacob was given another name just like his grandfather.) It is good to know that the thoughts of our God are higher than our thoughts and His ways different from ours. He created us for His pleasure not His sorrow. When we face difficulties and trials and tribulations come, we need to remember our royal pedigree; we are precious in the eyes of our Daddy. Matt. 10:29-31 reads  “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.  And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

It is always good to recognize the sovereign right and power of our heavenly Daddy Many times we assume that our situations are hopeless; we believe that we are beyond help, forgetting that we are never in charge. Why should we be discouraged, or even worry about anything; our hope should be in the all redeeming power of our God.

I always take solace in the words of Psalm 112 because it encourages us to stand still even when things look bad and seemingly impossible.

Blessed are those who fear the Lord,
    who find great delight in his commands.

Their children will be mighty in the land;
    the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in their houses,
    and their righteousness endures forever.
Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
    for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.
Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely,
    who conduct their affairs with justice.

Surely the righteous will never be shaken;
    they will be remembered forever.
They will have no fear of bad news;
    their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;
    in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.
They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor,
    their righteousness endures forever;
    their horn[c] will be lifted high in honor.

 

Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

 

Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love;
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee,
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

 

Take my voice, and let me sing
Always, only, for my King;
Take my lips, and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee,
Filled with messages from Thee.

 

Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose,
Every power as Thou shalt choose.

 

Take my will, and make it Thine;
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart; it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

 

Take my love; my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure-store.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee,
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Don’t worry about the “how”

The End. The Beginning.

Guest Writer: Wemi Opakunle

For a lot of people, 2014 was a great year. For others, not so much. There were trials and tribulations, heart breaks and let downs. For many, this year could not close out fast enough. I want to tell you something that might help put things in perspective in spite of how you feel about the past 12 months. The universe does not label experiences as good or bad. They just are experiences.

As human beings, we usually have the need to label things. It gives us a better understanding of why things are the way they are. It also helps us find our footing in this world; it helps us understand where we stand in the grand scheme of things.

In spite of our labels and feelings, we have to know that obstacles and challenges are not meant to break us down. It is actually impossible for them to do that. We only think they can because we’ve forgotten who we are. We are children of God, powerful beyond measure. Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing has the power to break us down.

Our experiences —whether we label them good or bad are not happening to us. They are happening through us and for us. They are meant to push us forward and catapult us into the fullness of the amazing human beings we were created to be. Once you change your mindset, your outlook will also change.

You’ll realize that you aren’t a victim of life or circumstance. You’ll start to understand that you are able to handle whatever life throws at you. Over the next few days, take stock of what was and let go. Don’t dwell on the past because life doesn’t dwell on the past. It moves forward — with or without you. Apply what was learned to the present moment and take action to be better; to live to your highest potential.

Accept the end and then begin again.

Zion City Ministries Present: 31 Days of Gratitude (December 1-31)

Posted by: admin in: ● December 1, 2014

PSALMS:

145-146

Day 1 I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.

2  Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

3  Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.

4  One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

5  I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

6  And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.

7 They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.

8 The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

9 The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.

10 All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee.

11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;

12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.

13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.

14 The Lord upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.

15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.

16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.

18 The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.

20 The Lord preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.

21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.

22 Praise ye the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul.

23 While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

24 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

25 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

26 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God:

27 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:

28 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The Lordlooseth the prisoners:

29 The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind: the Lord raiseth them that are bowed down: theLord loveth the righteous:

30 The Lord preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

31 The Lord shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye theLord.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven

Henry F. Lyte, 1834

  1. Praise, my soul, the King of Heaven;
    To His feet thy tribute bring.
    Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
    Evermore His praises sing:
    Praise Him, praise Him, alleluia!
    Praise the everlasting King.
  2. Praise Him for His grace and favor
    To our fathers in distress;
    Praise Him still the same as ever,
    Slow to chide, and swift to bless.
    Praise Him, praise Him, alleluia!
    Glorious in His faithfulness.
  3. Fatherlike He tends and spares us,
    Well our feeble frame He knows;
    In His hands He gently bears us,
    Rescues us from all our foes.
    Praise Him, praise Him, alleluia!
    Widely yet His mercy flows.
  4. Frail as summer’s flow’r we flourish,
    Blows the wind and it is gone;
    But while mortals rise and perish
    Our God lives unchanging on.
    Praise Him, praise Him, alleluia!
    Praise the high Eternal One!
  5. Angels, help us to adore Him,
    Ye behold Him face to face;
    Sun and moon, bow down before Him;
    Dwellers all in time and space,
    Praise Him, praise Him, alleluia!
    Praise with us the God of grace.

Choose To See The Light

Posted by: admin in: ● October 17, 2014

I have a friend who constantly complains about her physical appearance. I’ve tried many times to convince her of what I see, which is a beautiful girl with an infectious personality. Everytime she brings up a physical shortcoming, I want to shake her and make her see that no one is actually paying attention to those tiny, insignificant details.

I understand that we all have our off days but it becomes a problem for our psyche when everyday is an off day. If you notice that this is the case for you, then it’s time to call your mind to order. Stop the negative thoughts dead in their tracks the moment they begin to creep up on you. The mind is an incredibly powerful engine and it’s amazing how we can create problems that don’t exist just so our minds can have something to chew on.

I remember waking up a few days ago and walking into my bathroom. As I began to prepare for my day, I noticed that there was a bit of a chill in the air. It also seemed quite dreary from where I was standing. I checked the weather and the forecast was a perfect 75 degrees. I peaked out of my bathroom and could see a glimmer of light and the warmth of the sun seeping into my living room. In spite of this evidence in front of me, my mind had already begun to convince me that it would be a cloudy and dreary day based solely on where I was standing. In that moment, I realized how easy it is to become trapped in the prison of the mind.

Life is not perfect, it never will be. There will be times when your current standing offers very little hope. It may feel cold and devoid of promise but what’s important to remember is that those moments are just that –moments. No moment has ever lasted forever and neither will the one you’re going through. Choose to see the positive outside of that moment, recognize the beauty in life’s imperfections and on days when the clouds descend on your mind, don’t forget that right outside, there’s a glimmer of light waiting to embrace you.

If you don’t feed your soul, the world will feed it for you

Feed your soul

Feed your soul

Guest Writer: Wemi Opakunle

We’re all pretty aware that in order to live a long and healthy life, we have to take care of ourselves. It’s recommended that we eat whole foods, exercise regularly and take vitamins that help nourish us or correct any deficiencies. Focusing on our physical well-being is wonderful but so many of us forget that we also need to pay attention to our spiritual well-being. I’m not talking about going to your religious / spiritual place of worship every week, this goes deeper than that. I’m talking about feeding, growing and nourishing the relationship with the God that exists within you.

In the morning, you feed your body breakfast but what are you feeding your spirit? What are you feeding your soul? Are you speaking words of life, wisdom, abundance and encouragement or are you letting your soul run on empty? When you’re hungry, you’ll eat anything in sight just to have something in your stomach including junk food. The same goes for the soul. When the soul is starved, it is susceptible to the junk energy floating around. There’s nothing stopping it from allowing negative thoughts to take root. When your soul is hungry, you’re more likely to get angry, depressed, lonely and unfulfilled.

When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is express appreciation for my body, mind and spirit. I then move to physical things like my bed, my pillow, all the things that afforded me the opportunity to have a good night’s rest. By the time I make my way to the bathroom, I’m back to being thankful for my body. I appreciate the work that it does, I thank it for being so beautiful and strong. From my hair to my eyes to my feet, I feel an energy of gratitude for the purpose of each body part.

When I make my way into the shower, I start to speak words of encouragement and purpose for the unfolding day. I tell my day how it will go instead of letting the events of the day control me and determine my level of peace and happiness. If you do not feed your soul, the world will feed it for you. If you do not recognize and tell yourself who you are, the world will do it for you.

The fact is that no day is ever perfect but at the end of each day, I know that it was the best that it could possibly be. As I go to bed at night, I let go of all that was and settle into what is. Peace, surrender and contentment with the reality that all is well flow through me. I awake the next morning and I do it all over again.
