PROPHETIC SCRIPTURE FOR 2017: YEAR OF FULFILLMENT

Posted by: admin in: ● December 31, 2016

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”

PROPHETIC MESSAGE FOR 2016: IN THE MIDST OF ALL, YOU SHALL REJOICE

Posted by: admin in: ● December 31, 2015

Mark 10:46-52New International Version (NIV)

Blind Bartimaeus Receives His Sight

46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”

So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.

51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.

The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

52 “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

Thus saith the Lord concerning the year 2016: In the midst of the chaos that has engulfed the earth, my own people that are called by name and bear my mark, shall rejoice. “The journey shall be as smooth as butter”,  He said. Mercy shall be the keyword for 2016. Faith shall be the watchword! Do not play or claim righteousness; for none is righteous except Him. Plead the Blood of Jesus every moment and it will pave way for atonement, deliverance and protection. Come constantly to my presence, dwell therein and find repose and comfort.

Abide with me and in me and I will always attend to your calls and your needs. I will be your God and you shall be my people. I will continue to visit the earth in judgement; that is the reason for my people to dwell with me in the secret place. When I hear the plea of the precious blood of Calvary, I will pass over! Trust in my ability to shield and protect you, believe and you shall not be disappointed.

The world system has crashed and lost its power, now shall the kingdom and reign of the eternal God become evident on earth. Jehovah shall rule in majesty! In the year 2016, I shall be recognized and called by my name, “Jehovah Shalom”. (The Lord God Our Peace) Declare my peace over every troubled water, and it shall listen and heed your command. In times of need, call that name, and it will answer you. Declare peace where there is war, in your home, and in your life. I am the peace that the world needs.

Pray for Vietnam concerning major natural disaster, Pray for America; the enemies are watching for wrong choice of leadership. North and South Korea will need divine intervention. Pray against violent insurrection of the suffering masses across nations of the world. Pray that the mighty and noble will show mercy on the poor and needy. Pray for orphans of war and widows and widowers. Strange epidemics will be prevalent in 2016; pray for God’s mercy! There will be another major breakthrough in space exploration in this new year.

Prophetic Scripture: Psalm 86

Prophetic Song

  1. Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
    The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.
  2. Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
    To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.
  3. Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
    On Jesus’ bosom naught but calm is found.
  4. Peace, perfect peace, ’mid suffering’s sharpest throes?
    The sympathy of Jesus breathes repose.
  5. Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
    In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.
  6. Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
    Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.
  7. Peace, perfect peace, death shad’wing us and ours?
    Jesus has vanquished death and all its pow’rs.
  8. It is enough: earth’s struggles soon shall cease,
    And Jesus calls us to Heav’n’s perfect peace.

Edward H. Bickersteth, Jr., 1875

SHALOM! SHALOM!

Posted by: admin in: ● January 23, 2017

The first man, (Adam) was enthroned over an environment of abundance, harmony and eternal bliss. Eden was in fact a type of Paradise, where the perfect peace of God was so much beyond human understanding. The master plan of God for mankind is to exist in a state of wellness, unshaken and unmoved; the spirit man living in a mortal body is also created to be in perfect alignment with the spirit of the Grand Master. The kingdom of the heavenly Father is established first inside man to be outwardly manifested for the greater glory of the Creator.  Everything actually starts from within, which is the anchor of our oneness with God. The perfect and true essence of God is exemplified in His name, Jehovah Shalom. Our heavenly father has never been an author of chaos, He presides over an orderly kingdom that is wonderfully and fearfully created. His plan, is for His children to enjoy the inheritance He has bequeathed them. They don’t have to be anxious or worry about anything. They are not to think of lack in a well endowed kingdom. God has already sworn concerning His gift of shalom, which is a total package of wholeness and well being. Isaiah 54:10, is an assurance of God’s love for the children of men. “For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee”

We are created by Peace, (Jehovah) in peace, (process) and ordained for peace. (manifestation) If this is the will of the father, why have we fallen short of this glory. The answer, is straightforward and precise, the inner man has been polluted with sin. The battle front for the devil is man’s soul or his subconscious. In the book  of Psalm: 23,  David confirmed that the soul of man constantly needs restoration by God. He is the good Shepard, always guiding His sheep towards the still waters. His rod and staff directs us towards the path of righteousness which leads to His kingdom. However, mortal men are ever straying like sheep, playing a game of truancy. We continuously fail to surrender to the sovereign leadership of the Architect of our lives.   The eternal consciousness of God is still, calm and noiseless, so should be the state of our being. If we allow our spirit to yield to His pure and untainted spirit, we can become the true image of our heavenly Father. On the other hand, we can choose to become counterfeits with no value; the choice is ours! Nobody, no situation can rob us of our peace, because it is not something that can be taken away unless we surrender it. We are the legal custodian of peace, through the DNA of our heavenly Father. It is embedded within us.

Just like the prodigal child, we can always come back to our heavenly Daddy,  He is never tired of His children. When we squander the inheritance given to us and we repent, He welcomes us back home.  Living in a chaotic world that we created in our minds, which has eventually manifested in the physical, has alienated us from the original plan of God. It is so easy to lose focus in the midst of the madding crowd, it is very possible that we can lose our identity as the serenity of God on earth. We are created to be powerful, bold and well grounded, not with chicken hearts and lily livers.  It is indeed time to detoxify from within, and become new beings ready to resist every ploy of the enemy banishing us from Eden. When we have our eyes on the blue print we are able to reach our maximum potentials, living as Kings, Queens and Priests.  There will be no mountain that is too high to climb and no valley too deep to explore, we will surely be the true children of our heavenly Father. It is pertinent that we embrace our true identity, as an ever flowing fountain of peace, joy, and well being. There should be nothing missing, nothing broken or nothing to fix. Shalom!

As the wingèd arrow flies
Speedily the mark to find;
As the lightning from the skies
Darts, and leaves no trace behind;
Swiftly thus our fleeting days
Bear us down life’s rapid stream;
Upwards, Lord, our spirits raise,
All below is but a dream.

As the wingèd arrow flies
Speedily the mark to find;
As the lightning from the skies
Darts, and leaves no trace behind;
Swiftly thus our fleeting days
Bear us down life’s rapid stream;
Upwards, Lord, our spirits raise,
All below is but a dream.

Thanks for mercies past receive,
Pardon of our sins renew;
Teach us, henceforth, how to live
With eternity in view:
Bless Thy Word to young and old,
Fill us with a Savior’s love;
And when life’s short tale is told,
May we dwell with Thee above.

Fill us with a Savior’s love;
And when life’s short tale is told,
May we dwell with Thee above

Rock of Ages, cleft for me

Posted by: admin in: ● October 17, 2016

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy riven side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure,
Save me from its guilt and power.

 

2
Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All could never sin erase,
Thou must save, and save by grace.

 

3
Nothing in my hands I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress,
Helpless, look to Thee for grace:
Foul, I to the fountain fly,
Wash me, Savior, or I die.

 

4
While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee

Thomas Hastings (1784-1872)

Choose To See The Light

Posted by: admin in: ● October 10, 2016

Guest Writer: Wemi Opakunle

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. Every time 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.

GUIDE ME, O THOU GREAT JEHOVAH

Posted by: admin in: ● October 2, 2016

 

 

Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,[or Guide me, O Thou great Redeemer…]
Pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me with Thy powerful hand.
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven,
Feed me till I want no more;
Feed me till I want no more.

Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield;
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield.

Lord, I trust Thy mighty power,
Wondrous are Thy works of old;
Thou deliver’st Thine from thralldom,
Who for naught themselves had sold:
Thou didst conquer, Thou didst conquer,
Sin, and Satan and the grave,
Sin, and Satan and the grave.

When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of deaths, and hell’s destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan’s side.
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee;
I will ever give to Thee.

Musing on my habitation,
Musing on my heav’nly home,
Fills my soul with holy longings:
Come, my Jesus, quickly come;
Vanity is all I see;
Lord, I long to be with Thee!
Lord, I long to be with Thee!

BE PREPARED

Posted by: admin in: ● September 19, 2016

Be prepared

Be prepared

I was recently watching the news on television when suddenly, I was struck with the revelation of the tumultuous state of the world at large.  Wars, Disasters and Pestilence have become an every day occurrence. It suddenly dawned on me that all is not well with this universe. As I was trying to calm myself down and rebuke the spirit of panic, I heard the voice that I have grown to recognize as that of the heavenly Father.  He said “Don’t you get it? The scripture is being fulfilled before your very eyes”. I was stunned and disheveled, but still hoping to hear more. I did the only thing I knew would bring me  perfect peace, I went searching through the source of all knowledge; the Holy Bible.

The first scripture that caught my eyes was the book of Luke 12:54-56. ” And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.  Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?” Brethren,  is there a possibility that we are very oblivious of what is happening around us? This brings us to another scripture that caught my attention through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Earlier in the same twelfth chapter of the gospel of Luke, Jesus Christ said, ” And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.  Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.” (verses 39&40) Are we actually in denial of possibilities of a sequence of events preceding the triumphant second coming of the Messiah?

Without arrogating to myself the power to judge anybody, I want to appeal to all people of God to pray without ceasing in these perilous times. Most of us pray for prosperity so much that we forget that our sustenance depends on the world we live in; that is why we have to pray about our earthly home, until the time we transition to our heavenly home where there will be no more wars, destruction, pestilence or death. Nobody wants to intercede for nations, leaders or even causes. If we can use a quarter of the time we use in preaching to stand in the gap for the peace of our earthly abode, we will definitely change the direction of its affairs. We cannot stand aloof and be unperturbed by silent signals of a greater catastrophe. By every definition, it is not well with this universe; where there is war in almost every part of the planet and diseases and pestilence have continuously ravaged communities. Sin and abominations are the trends of this emancipated specie called mankind that has suddenly forgotten that life is a gift from God.

Our Lord Jesus Christ warned us of the danger of not being alert and  watchful concerning spiritual matters and truths that are infallible; because they come from the mouth of God. Nothing that comes from His mouth will go back unfulfilled. The book of Luke 17:28 -30 takes us down memory lane, revealing consequences of treating the word of God with levity.

6 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. ”

My greatest wish is that this generation will not become another historical data of those who were not ready for the arrival of the King of kings and Lord of lords. We have to rise and raise awareness about events around us that are pointers to the impending manifestation of Scriptural prophecies. This is the time for the church of God to raise an army of soldiers of Christ who will raise the banners of our God high across all nations, preparing the way for the Lord. We are to pray without ceasing, with great expectation that when the Lion of the tribe Judah shall appear, He will be the appointed bridegroom that has come to meet a worthy bride. The wedding will be heralded by archangels, the angels and other hosts of heaven. Are you ready to be part of this great event? What a glorious day it would be, when we shall all behold His glory with our own bare eyes! Hallelujah.

JESUS CHRIST: THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF

Posted by: admin in: ● August 18, 2016

Onward, Christian soldiers, 

1 Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
going on before!
Christ, the royal Master,
leads again the foe;
Forward into battle,
see his banner go!

Refrain:
Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
going on before!

2 At the sign of triumph
Satan’s host doth flee;
On, then, Christian soldiers,
on to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
at the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices,
loud your anthems raise! [Refrain]

3 Like a mighty army
moves the church of God;
Brothers, we are treading
where the saints have trod;
We are not divided;
all one body we,
One in hope and doctrine,
one in charity. [Refrain]

4 Onward, then, ye people,
join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices
in the triumph song;
Glory, laud, and honor,
unto Christ the King;
This thro’ countless ages
men and angels sing. [Refrain]

The Ultimate Game Changer

Posted by: admin in: ● July 31, 2016

Jesus – The Ultimate Game Changer

A new revelation about the identity of Jesus has been my latest obsession. The son of God has earned a lot of adoring names describing His essence; He is Alpha and Omega, Prince of peace, Lion of the tribe of Judah, Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, Adonai, and many more. In this vast inexhaustible catalogue, I discovered a name that has kept me thinking– The Game Changer. Hmm, interesting! This resonates so much when I consider numerous events and situations in my own life. I was so excited by this revelation that I went down memory lane of other events in the Bible that  made me believe and agree that though there is no place in the scriptures where He was actually given this title, there are events to show that He has the power over all things including life and death. In one of John’s spiritual encounters, chronicled as the book of Revelation, he had an encounter with Christ. He (Christ) told him that He lives, was dead and is alive forever more. (Rev 1: 18) Jesus led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men, He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens to fill all things. ( Ephesians 4: 8-10)

The Heavenly Father saw that mankind had lost vision of his purpose on earth; through the burden of sin man came short of the glory of God. He (The Father) sent His only begotten son in whom He was deeply pleased to the earth so that, He (Jesus) would make everything new. There must however be a sacrifice for this new dispensation to be established. The blood of Jesus must be shed in atonement for all sins, including those of our ancestors. Through disobedience, Adam sinned incurring deadly curses upon all flesh. Jesus came to change the game; a new dispensation and a new testament. Old things passed away and all things became new. In Christ Jesus the incredible plan of God to redeem the earth from total destruction was implemented and perfected. This was an unprecedented act of grace.

The whole life of Jesus preceding His death was all about stepping in and stepping up; His presence was all about changing the game. Every where He went, He left a testament of change. Stories in the Bible confirmed how the man of Galilee brought hope, where there was despair and joy where there was sadness. Jesus was the light perpetual in the midst of every dark moment. Through Christ, the love and power of Jehovah was revealed. He came in a form that was reachable by all; yet He had the power to reach where no man could reach. Here are some fantastic examples of how the finger of the son of God turned things around.

 

The wedding at Cana of Galilee: John 2 (KJV)

And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:

And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.

And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.

Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.

Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

 

Blind Barthimaeus received his sight: Mark 10: 52

46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.

47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.

49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.

50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.

 

The woman with the issue of blood: Luke 8:43-48 KJV

43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,

44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.

48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

 

A woman caught in adultery: John 8: 1-11

Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

 

Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead: John 11

38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

With all the above, what other evidence are we looking for to establish Jesus Christ as the ultimate game changer?  We owe Him praise and adoration for changing our destiny. Jesus called us out of darkness into His beautiful light, which continues to shine over the world, impacting all peoples, regardless of color, race or pedigree. His name continues to be a strong and high tower for all who are weary and need rest.
