WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME

(Dreamt on 6th October, 2017)

I saw Jesus, again in this dream, and I saw myself pleading with people this message:

Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. – Matthew 24:34 (KJV)

This generation shall not pass till all things spoken by the Prophets of God are seen. Our generation shall see the coming of our LORD Jesus Christ. Most people do not know what a generation is or means to God.

According to God’s conversation with Abraham (then called Abram) in Genesis 15, He told Abraham that, He should know for a fact that his descendants would be slaves for 400 years, and then after the 4th generation, they shall be rescued and brought back to their land of inheritance.

“And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land [that is] not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; and also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. “ (Genesis 15:13-14 KJV)

According to this, a generation from God’s conversation with Abraham was a 100 years—not 10, 20, or 40 years as most people deem a generation to be. In the sight of God, it is largely different.

Therefore, if Jesus said, the generation that sees these signs shall not pass till all be fulfilled, He made reference to our present generation—the last generation of 100 years from the time Israel was constituted again as a nation (1948). We are in that 100 years.

One would ask, why Israel? Israel is God’s chosen people, and His covenant cannot be broken.

Jesus said, a parable concerning the fig tree, when it put forth leaves. Symbolically, that represented Israel, the people of God, coming back again into their own land, and being constituted as a nation again.

Christ said, “Now learn a parable of the fig tree: when his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh. So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, EVEN AT THE DOORS. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:32-35 KJV)

Beloved of God, we don’t have much time. Our time has almost run out. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). No man on this planet has ever said these words since the time of Jesus Christ. No one can be saved from the dreadful things about to hit our world without knowing Him as LORD, and Saviour.

Get saved now! Surrender, and ask Jesus into your life. Amend your ways and make Him LORD over your life.

In His last words in Luke 21, He said, “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” (Luke 21:34-36 KJV).

He that has ears to hear, let him hear. As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (Matthew 25:37 KJV).

Consolidating Victory: Deal with “all”, never leave “some” for posterity!

dont-pass-to-posterity

“None of the Anakim were left in the land of the children of Israel; they remained only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod.” (Joshua 11:22 NKJV).

LESSON:

Joshua destroyed the Anakims that were in the land of the children of Israel. However, he didn’t press on the deal with the Anakims (giants) that were in the nearby Philistine cities of Gaza, Gath and Ashdod. Decades on, Goliath, and his other four brothers of the seed of the Anakims (giants) appeared on the scene to harass Israel, and to disturb the peace they enjoyed on their Promised Land (1 Samuel 17:4; 2 Samuel 21:16-22).

What you fail to deal with, and completely eliminate, in the day of your power and might, would rise to afflict your children after your decease. Never leave battles you can effectively handle today to posterity. Deal with them now, and save future generations from needless problems and afflictions.

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, I ask for your grace, strength, and wisdom to deal with every challenge and battle that stands my way. Lord, let posterity inherit absolute peace from the victories you would give me, in the name of Jesus. Amen!!

Warfare Strategy: Never let “the Head” stand!

let-it-not-remain-standing

“Joshua turned back at that time and took Hazor, and struck its king with the sword; for Hazor was formerly the head of all those kingdoms. But as for the cities that stood on their mounds, Israel burned none of them, except Hazor only, which Joshua burned.” (Joshua 11:10 & 13 NKJV).

LESSON:

Joshua destroyed the stronghold of the enemy, Jabin. He destroyed the command centre of Israel’s adversary. Joshua led Israel to demolish “the head”. Hazor was the head of the whole kingdom that came against him, and against Israel. Once the head is down, all other parts would fall apart in a matter of time. When you face the enemy of your soul, never let his operation room stand. Destroy it! Never let his stronghold in your life stand; make sure you utterly tear it down. Once you get it down, his influence on all other parts of your life would weaken in no time.

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, let every evil fortress, and meeting place, from which evil schemes are plotted against me, by the kingdom of darkness, receive judgment of your holy fire now, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen!!

God’s Word For His People As We Enter 2017

grace-explosion-prophecy-for-2017There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.” – Hebrews 4:9 KJV.

Almighty God would move mightily in 2017 to bring rest to His people (Hebrews 4:9-10). He would magnify His law and make it honourable in the sight of all people (Isaiah 42:21). He would give double grace to His people to see to the establishment of His will and purpose in their lives, and to see them through all their endeavours (Zechariah 4:7). God’s grace would bring His people into their wealthy place come 2017 (Psalm 66:12). For His obedient children, He would bring them into His rest (Deuteronomy 28:1-2). But for the rebellious ones, He would chastise them to bring them to the paths of righteousness (1 Corinthians 11:32). God would manifest His might greatly come 2017 on behalf of His people (Isaiah 41:10-13). God’s glory is going to be released in a greater way, and would be seen upon His people (Isaiah 40:5). Fear shall fall upon the ungodly, and the sinner to convict them of sin, of righteousness, and of God’s judgment (Isaiah 33:14). Harden not your heart, but receive the Word of the Lord with meekness, to be a partaker of the riches of His grace and glory in 2017 (James 1:21 & Hebrews 3:7-8).

May we experience the full measure of all God has in store for us in 2017. Amen!

Relationship: An Essential Key to Effective Prayer and Power with God

true-father-love
“I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world.” (John 17:6 KJV).

One of the most powerful keys to effective prayer and power with God is Relationship. There are so many kinds of relationships in our social circles. These include: Husband-Wife, Master-Servant, Employer-Employee, Father-Child, Leader-Follower, etc. And we can develop relationship with the Almighty God on the basis of our knowledge of who He is to us. In the Holy Scriptures, there are so many relationships man can develop with His maker. And the effectiveness of communication and the power derived from such relationships were dependent on the terms upon which the relationships hanged.

The relationships the people of old had with God were determined by the revelation of God they had. God answered His servants who knew Him to be their Lord. These servants in reverential fear served God as their master. Example: Elijah’s prayers for fire. In 1 Kings 18:36, his request for fire was to prove that he is a servant, and had done everything according to the word of the Lord, his master. Sure! Fire came down in answer to that prayer. But, in 2 Kings 1:9-12, he felt threatened by the captains and their hosts the king had sent to take him from the hill. And his request for fire to consume them was also hinged on his relationship, as a man (servant) of God. For he said: “If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.”

However, the highest form of relationship is the Father-Child relationship. Why? This is relationship bonded by blood, one of the most powerful elements on the earth according to 1 John 5:8. This was the relationship in the beginning according to Genesis, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures. Adam was a son of God (Luke 3:38). That was what we lost, and it was for this cause Christ came to reconcile us again by a blood covenant (Colossians 1:20).

Jesus Christ came to introduce us to the name and relationship we lost through disobedience and rebellion—that is Heavenly Father, the Father-Child relationship (John 17:6). When Jesus walked the earth, his disciples saw the effectiveness of his prayers and once asked for a lesson on prayer. “And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.” (Luke 11:1-2 KJV)

Jesus’ introductory words indicated that everything that came afterwards was founded on the relationship which existed between the one praying, and the One to whom the prayer was directed (God). This name, Heavenly Father, connects us to a superior relationship none of the people of the Old Testament knew.

He is our Lord, and we are co-labourer with Him in His vineyard (1 Corinthians 3:9), but more importantly He is our Father in heaven. And we must seek to cultivate that relationship by doing what would please Him, as our Father. We must desire to have constant fellowship with Him, and not become vagabond children—wanderers who visit His presence occasionally, who do not know His voice, and who do not know His will.

Developing a good relationship with God is the ultimate key to effective and answered prayer. He spoke through the Prophet Malachi:
“A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts” (Malachi 1:6 KJV).

We must be extra concerned with our relationship with God if we desire to have power with our prayers.

God bless you!
