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.”

:

 

 

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.

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.

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.

DON’T YOU GET IT?

Posted by: admin in: ● September 1, 2014

I was recently watching the news on a new international channel, 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 Lord speak to me as in the past. 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 truth and 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 to 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 war, 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 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 of 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 elect) The wedding will be heralded by archangels the angels and other hosts of heaven. Are you ready to be part of this holy Eucharist? What a glorious day it would be, when we shall all behold His glory with our own bare eyes! Halleluyah

 

 

 

 

IS IT TRUE?

Posted by: admin in: ● August 11, 2014

 Revelation 22:17

 

We are living in a generation that does not invest much in freebies.  Times without number, I have seen advertisement of products on television that seems too good to be true. Almost everything that seems free and sounds free ends up with strings attached. Hidden surprises and agendas are an everyday occurrence in this fast world. Many people have lost money and inheritances to some too good to believe ideas. Ponzi schemes have also destroyed lives of innocent people and ruined many more, leaving them devastated and despondent. Real estate went through a season of bubble bursting in America, leaving so many people homeless and helpless. This is the evidence of a universe that is fast becoming devious and uncaring.

The book of 1Corinthians 13:13, tells us that love is the fuel that can keep us running in this race of life. It is pure and untainted. Love does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness but rejoices when right and truth prevail. (1Cor 13:6) It will then not be an understatement to categorize people who perpetrate such heinous acts as those who have not yet been baptized unto love. They have not encountered love as a person; they are yet to have a personal relationship with God who is the embodiment of love

Now let’s come back to the issue of freebies; are there still free things that are precious, even more precious than diamond or gold?  What gift can anybody desire most that is free and can never be purchased with money or any other equivalent? I believe that can only be the gift of life; It is the pure and eternal gift that Jesus offered to all who thirst for that which money cannot buy. Christ the King said “Come! and let everyone come who is thirsty [who is painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported and strengthened;] and who ever [earnestly] desires to do it, let him come, take, appropriate, and drink the water of life without cost [Isaiah 55:1]”

What love is greater than this one, that the son of God has bestowed upon us. It is free; at no cost. He says “Have all of me; I am all yours.” When we drink from the well of life, (Jesus) we will never thirst again. In Christ, the spring of life, we are nourished with heavenly nutrients that prepare us for a good marathon. We will run and never be weary, even walk and never faint. Today we can make that choice, to accept the offer that the King is extending to us. It sounds too good to be true; but it is true, because it comes from the mouth of God. It is nothing but the absolute truth.
